Christmas. Part-Four.

Jesus the Jewish Messiah and the Saviour of the world is now born. Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 2:6-7.

He was not a helpless babe, his mother the Virgin” went on to have other children with her husband Joseph. Jesus was circumcised eight days after His birth in that stable. Luke 2:21-24. He had to fulfill the conditions of Jewish Law, since he was their promised Messiah.

Many people say ‘why do the Jews, not believe? Some do believe, but meanwhile some Catholic’s rely on infant baptism, conformation and the traditions of the Church, and they continue on in pagan revelry. We need all to come to a personal relationship with Jesus and turn away form Sin. Acts 4:12, John 3:15-21. Romans 3:23, 6:23, 1 John 1:5-10.

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.
