(1) The birth of Jesus

Mary was engaged to be married to Joseph.
But while she was still a virgin,
she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit.
Joseph, her fiance, being a good man,
decided to break the engagement quietly,
so Mary would not be disgraced publicly.
One day, Joseph fell asleep and an angel of God
appeared to him in his dream.
"Joseph, don't be afraid to marry Mary.
For the child within her has been conceived by the Holy Spirit.
and she wil have a son, and you are to name him Jesus,
for he will save his people from their sins,"
Joseph did as he was told and took Mary as his wife.
Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem.
The same night, the wise men came to visit the child
and they fell down before him and worshiped him.
They also gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
