Mary: Virgin and
All Christians believe that Mary
was a virgin before and at the
time of the birth of her son
The virgin shall
be with child, and bear a son, and shall
name him Immanuel.
Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about.
When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but
before they lived together, she was found with child
through the holy Spirit. Joseph her husband, since he
was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to
shame, decided to divorce her quietly. Such was his
intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared
to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David,
not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home.
