The Christmas Story

This is a story that will make you learn more about the birth of Jesus Christ.
  • 1This is how Jesus Christ was born.
  • 2A young woman named Mary was engaged to Joseph from King David's family.
  • 3But before they were married,...
  • 4...she learned she was going to have a baby by God's Holy Spirit.
  • 5Joseph was a good man and did not want to embarrass Mary in front of everyone,...
  • he decided to quietly call off the wedding.
  • 7While Joseph was thinking about this, an angel from the Lord came to him in a dream.
  • 8The angel said, "Joseph, the baby that Mary will have is from the Holy Spirit."
  • 9"Go ahead and marry her. "
  • 10"Then after the baby is born, name him Jesus,..."
  • 11"...because he will save his people from their sins."
  • 12So the Lord's promise came true, just as the prophet had said,...
  • 13"A virgin will have a baby boy, and he will be called Emmanuel,..."
  • 14...which means "God is with us."
  • 15After Joseph woke up, he and Mary were soon married,...
  • 16...just as the Lord's angel had told him to do.
