  • I am writing to you, dear Theophilus;

  • an orderly account of the things that have taken place among us,

  • so that you may know the absolute truth about everything.

  • In the days when Caesar Augustus was emperor of Rome

  • and when Herod the great was king of Judea,

  • God sent the angel Gabriel to visit a virgin girl in the city of Nazareth.

  • And the virgin's name was Mary.

  • Fear not Mary,

  • For you have found favor with God.

  • You will conceive and give birth to a Son

  • and you will call His name, Jesus.

  • How can this be? I am a virgin.

  • The Holy Spirit will come upon you.

  • For this reason the Holy Child will be called

  • the Son of the Most High God. His kingdom will never end.

  • So Mary traveled to a town in Judea

  • to visit her cousin Elizabeth who was also miraculously with child.

  • Elizabeth!

  • Mary! Cousin Mary!

  • You are the most blessed of all women.

  • And blessed is the Child you will bear.

  • For as soon as I heard your greeting, the baby within me jumped with joy!

  • My soul magnifies the Lord,

  • and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.

  • From now on, all generations will call me blessed.

  • Know all men of Nazareth,

  • that by command of Caesar Augustus,

  • there will be conducted a census

  • of the subject territories of Galilee and Judea.

  • All men must register forthwith

  • in the towns and cities of their ancestral birth.

  • And Mary went to Bethlehem in Judea

  • to register with Joseph her betrothed.

  • But there was no room for them in Bethlehem.

  • And the only lodging they could find was a humble stable.

  • Now there were some shepherds in that part of the country who were

  • taking care of their flock at night when an angel of God appeared to them

  • and the glory of God was shining around them.

  • This very day in David's town, your Savior was born,

  • Christ the Lord.

  • The shepherds hurried to see the newborn Babe in the manger,

  • and were the first to spread the Good News or Gospel

  • of the virgin mother and the Savior's birth.

I am writing to you, dear Theophilus;
