The Story Of Jesus's Birth
God sent the angel Gabriel to visit Mary in the city of Nazareth in Galilee. Mary was a young woman who was engaged to marry Joseph, a carpenter of Nazareth.
An angel spoke to Mary and told her, “The Lord is with you, and you are greatly favored.” Mary was troubled. She did not know what he angel meant. Then he said, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have favor with God. You will have a son and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great. He will be a king who will rule forever.”
