“God has looked with favor on his lowly servant” (Luke 1:48).
Just as there are many Christologies, high and low, there are also different Mariologies. In John's Gospel, Jesus is divine Lord, self-aware and supernatural. In Mark, he is the “Son of Man” (human being), limited and learning, unable to work miracles without faith. Likewise, Mary is prescient and directive at the wedding feast at Cana (John 2:1), but anxious and checked at the door when she and family come to claim Jesus, fearing that he is “out of his mind” (Mark 3:21).
