A Bible story series run about the life of Jesus Christ adapted from the book Who Was Jesus, Really? By James Taiwo.
Jesus Christ, the Son of Man and Son of God has all good attributes to his honor. Not only was his birth miraculous, but his life itself is also an inspiration and a wonder. As many know it from the Bible, a virgin girl who once lived in Nazareth was known to be a very good woman who loved God.
She was planning to get married to Joseph – her fiancé – when an angel of God appeared to her to tell her about how she would get pregnant without a man. Imagine how possible!
Mary who was a woman of faith believed God could do anything he promised, and so she agreed with the angel and expected the miracle baby.
Unfortunately, having a baby without being married would be difficult for Mary and her reputation in society especially since many people knew her as a virgin.
Mary had more things to worry about. Joseph, Mary’s fiancé, who has been planning for their wedding heard the news of her pregnancy and was disappointed.
Joseph, being a good man, secretly planned to break up with Mary so that the public would not know about it.
God saved Mary’s relationship with Joseph! God’s angel (Gabriel) visited Joseph and told him what actually happened.
He told Joseph that Mary was honest and she was carrying a miracle child. God also told Joseph not to view the baby as illegitimate but care for both the boy and his mother.
Joseph believed the word of God that Mary was pregnant by the Holy Spirit. He didn’t cancel the wedding but made it happen as planned.
What this shows about these two parents of Jesus is their virtue and faith in God. Despite what they think is usual or acceptable, they chose to be a vessel for God’s working, even if it means public shame to both of them.
Giving birth to the baby early would imply to the society that Joseph and Mary had been immoral before their legal wedding, but they didn’t care.
Luckily, the baby did come and was one of the brightest children in the world. I am yet to tell you about how his conception was prophesied earlier by the prophet that lived before him.
This series will continue, and in the next episode, you will learn more about the mystery baby called Jesus Christ.
