Luke 1:26-38

The Birds and the Bees and a Thing Called God

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin's name was Mary.

And he came to her and said, "Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you."

But she was much perplexed by his words and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.

The angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And now, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his ancestor David. He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end."

Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I am a virgin?"

The angel said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be holy; he will be called Son of God. And now, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son; and this is the sixth month for her who was said to be barren. For nothing will be impossible with God."

Then Mary said, "Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word." Then the angel departed from her.

And Now a Word from Our Sponsor ...

"Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word." An example of extreme faith! For Luke and Matthew, Jesus is God's son at his conception through the Holy Spirit and Mary, thus the story begins with his birth. This is earlier than for the writer of Mark, where it was at the beginning of Jesus' public ministry, specifically at his baptism, where God pronounces him his son. None-the-less, Mary models the proper response to a request from God (aka say yes).
