Emmanuel, “God is with us.”
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,
do not be afraid
to take Mary your wife
into your home.
For it is through the Holy Spirit
that this child has been conceived in her.
She will bear a son
and you are to name him Jesus,
because he will save his people from their sins.”
All this took place to fulfill
what the Lord had said through the prophet:
Behold, the virgin shall be with child
and bear a son,
and they shall name him
which means “God is with us.”
When Joseph awoke,
he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him
and took his wife into his home.
He had no relations with her until she bore a son,
and he named him Jesus. -Matthew 1:18-25
