Jesus Christ BirthJesus Christ Birth

Jesus Birth is a religious leader whose life and teachings are recorded in the Bible’s New Testament. He is a central figure in Christianity and is emulated as the incarnation of God by many Christians all over the world.

MARY, THE MOTHER OF JESUS

The virgin of whom Isaiah prophesied was a young woman of Jerusalem named Mary. She was engaged to be married when she was visited by an angel. The angel told her she had found favor with God and that through a miracle she would conceive and give birth to the son of God.

JOSEPH

The man to whom Mary was engaged was a carpenter and a good man named Joseph. When he first heard that Mary was expecting, he was afraid of the scandal it might cause.

The story of Jesus’ birth (the nativity) is often retold by children through ‘Nativity Plays’. Church services often include carol singing – these are happy songs which tell the Christmas story. Some Christians start Christmas Day with a midnight communion service (midnight mass).
