          The Birth of Jesus Christ

Jesus' birth foretold

The advent of Jesus' birth is the single most spiritually transforming event in human existence. As was prophesied, Jesus Christ was born to be the Savior of mankind. The Old testament contains over 300 prophetic pronouncements of Jesus' birth. Prophets and religious personalities foretold the birth thousands of years before the actual event. These men, all worshipers of Jehovah, the one God, had no concept of the timeframe for fulfilling this prophecy. Yet, they continued to proclaim and record what God had revealed to them because of their steadfast faith in His power. As we read Matthew's account of Jesus' birth, we learn that astrologers or wise men living in East Africa, Asia and India too, had knowledge of Jesus' impending birth. Based on their studies of the stars, they discerned that an extremely remarkable event was imminent. And they soon realized with great joy that the astrological phenomenon indeed signaled the birth of the promised Messiah. Evidence of this is recorded in Matthew 2: 10-11

The Angel Gabriel visits Mary
Luke 1:26-35

...God sent an angel to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.  The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.

Undoubtedly Mary's divine conception must have sparked gossip and made her the subject of ridicule in the village where she lived. But the bible tells us that Mary though puzzled at first, reacted with great joy to be the chosen vessel to bring the Son of God, Jesus Christ into the world.
And Mary said: "My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed. Luke 1:46-48
