If John’s birth was a miracle, how much more was the birth of Jesus! He only had a mother–his Father was God. As you read the story of the coming birth of Jesus, you’ll hear the Angel Gabriel promise these wondrous things that are going to take place in Mary’s life. Much different from Zechariah, the father of John, Mary only wonders and believes what is going to happen to her.
Sit beside Mary as she hears the joyous promises of Gabriel. The birth of Jesus changes everything!
Fridays are dedicated to the Gospels.
