Posted by eThought on

Luke 1:26-35 says:

26-27During Elizabeth's sixth month of pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to a virgin girl that lived in Nazareth, a town in Galilee. The girl was engaged to marry a man named Joseph from the family of David. Her name was Mary. 28The angel came to her and said, "Greetings! The Lord (God) is with you. You are very special to him." 29But Mary was very confused about what the angel said. Mary wondered, "What does this mean?"30The angel said to her, "Don't be afraid, Mary, because God is very pleased with you.31Listen! You will become pregnant. You will give birth to a baby boy. And you will name him Jesus.32He will be great (important). People will call him the Son of the Most High (God). The Lord God will give him the authority of David, his ancestor.33Jesus will rule over the people of Jacob forever. Jesus' kingdom will never end." 34Mary said to the angel, "How will this happen? I am still a virgin!" 35The angel said to Mary, "The Holy Spirit will come to you and the power of the Most High (God) will cover you. The baby will be holy. He will be called the Son of God. (Easy-to-Read Version)

King James Version:

26And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. 28And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. 29And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. 30And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. 34Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
