WEEK TWO: New Testament
Matthew 1:20- 21 ...Behold an angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
|Blessed Art Thou Among Women by Walter Rane|
Luke 1: 5-13 and 39-43
This is a large chunk of scripture, and frankly I didn't want to type it all up. You should go look it up it's pretty dang good.
For those of you who won't go look it up, here's the synopsis. Zacharias and Elizabeth are old, and childless. They are blessed with a baby, John who later becomes John the Baptist who prepares the way for the Lord Jesus Christ to fulfill His earthly mission. (In the process Zacharias gets struck dumb, after he says his wife is old, as a sign that it will all really happen.) When Mary visits them, Elizabeth says her baby leapt in her womb because it recognized Mary's baby in her womb.
