I'm Catholic and a CPA. I've have been studying Scripture for a while and like discussing different beliefs.

@Pete It’s too bad Gabriel can’t answer this for you, and that we’re not able to obtain Jesus’ view/choice.

Looking at Luke 1:28 only in English Bibles, I'm noticing some considerable differences due to adverbs used (or not used). While some Bibles show only "favored" (NASB, YLT), others have "highly favored" (KJV, ASV); I've also read wording such as "truly blessed" (CEV). While the Bible you're referencing shows only "κεχαριτωμενη", others will show "χαιρε κεχαριτωμενη", and I think just that wording difference will have quite an effect on interpretations here. I'll see what else I'm able to find.

@MarkEdward Both. It's about how many individuals of any type arrived to see Abraham & Sarah, and then how many left, accounting for every one. Thanks.

While I have a couple more questions, I'd rather not post them in comments. Would you join me in the library to talk?
