The Birth of Jesus - For Nothing Is Impossible With God

There are several verses in scripture that mention “with God all things are possible”. In this case, it’s about the birth of two little boys. One is John who is to be born to Elizabeth, Mary’s elderly cousin who was past her child-barren years. The other is Jesus who is to be born to a young virgin named Mary.

Luke 1:26-56 gives us the beautiful picture of the promise of the Messiah’s birth. God sent the angel, Gabriel, to announce this promise to a virgin named Mary. For nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37). Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, a descendant of David.

The Annunciation

The Annunciation of Jesus by Gabriel

God Sends The Angel Gabriel

The angel went to Mary and said “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you. Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the SON OF THE MOST HIGH.” Luke 1:30-33

The Nativity

Jesus Is Born In Bethlehem

An angel of the Lord appeared to shepherds in nearby fields. “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; HE IS CHRIST THE LORD. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:10-12

The Wisemen

Wise Men Came To Visit

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem, during the time of King Herod, Magi (wise men) came from the east and asked, “Where is the one who has been born KING OF THE JEWS? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.” They presented him with gifts of gold, incense, and myrrh. Matthew 2:1-2, 11.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. (John 1:1-2)

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. (John 1:14)
