The Birth of Jesus the Messiah

18This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit.G1161G1083G2424G5547G2258G3779G1063G846G3384G3137G3423G2501G4250G2228G846G4905G2147G1722G1064G2192G1537G40G4151 19Joseph, her fiance, was a good man and did not want to disgrace her publicly, so he decided to break the engagement quietly.G1161G2501G846G435G5607G1342G2532G3361G2309G3856G846G3856G1014G630G846G630G2977 20As he considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. "Joseph, son of David," the angel said, "do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit.G1161G846G1760G5023G2400G32G2962G5316G846G2596G3677G3004G2501G5207G1138G5399G3361G3880G4675G3137G1135G1063G1080G1722G846G2076G1537G40G4151 21And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins."G1161G5088G5207G2532G2564G846G3686G2424G1063G846G4982G846G2992G575G846G266 22All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord's message through his prophet.G1161G3650G5124G1096G2443G4137G3588G4483G5259G2962G1223G4396G3004 23"Look!
