Mary. Part-One.


When we come to think of Mary, we associate her with the virgin birth of Jesus and the Christmas story. But in this series we will look at her whole life, from her betrothal to Joseph her husband and on  to the end, where we see her adopting the disciples of Jesus.

Mary is described as a simple girl, we do not really know her age. But in Jewish culture she was young. People married young, because people did not live as long as we do today. We know she had a sister Elizabeth, who was married to Zechariah a High Priest who served in the Temple. They were the parents of the last prophet of Israel John the Baptist. Mary was told by an angel ‘that she had been chosen by God to bear His son, she was also told how it would happen, since she was a virgin and had never been with a man.

Luke 1:5-25,  28-38.
