The First Christmas
 Matthew 1:18~2:11, Luke 2:1~21
1. When King Herod ruled the land of Judea, in Nazareth, a town in Galilee, there lived a chaste maiden named Mary who loved God. Mary was engaged to Joseph but was pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Joseph tried to divorce her out of shame. One day, an Angel appeared to Joseph and said, "Do not be afraid, Mary is pregnant through the Holy Spirit so give the baby the name Jesus. He will save his people from the sin." Joseph and Mary obeyed God's words and married.
