As we come to Christmas we all hear the story of Christ birth. Often singing, "Round yon Virgin Mother and Child, holy infant …" Today, I paused to contemplate this "Virgin Mother and her holy infant" . What kind of Mother and Virgin must she have been. That the she would conceive the "Son of God" that would bring redemption into the world and save mankind from their sins.

Surely, this "Woman" as Christ called her, was more than any ordinary Woman. She being a virgin was espoused to Joseph, whom we hear or think little about during this season accept that he was with her as the looked for room at the inn's and when she gave birth.

There are all kinds of religious arguments about whether went on to have other children or whether she remained a virgin. But, one thing they don't argue about is whether she was holy and whether she was most holy among woman and full of faith. At one scene in the gospels, there appears on the surface to be a "put down" by Christ. In Luke 11: The story is told, "27And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. 28But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. " . Mary was first to hear the word in the gospels by an angel and she was first to "keep it" . Christ extols her for her faith above the other women she is "blessed" . Truly, it was her faith made her proclaim to the Angel, "Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it done according to thy will."

In today's world how precious is it to even know any woman who so desires to live a pure virgin life, living both in modesty and in faith. And a woman such as this, to be so pure that she is chosen to be the Mother of Him who is perfect.. If Christ is to "live in us" , maybe we have an example of how woman should live that remains forever. Mary, whom brought forth Christ from living in her womb. What a contrast to a walk in the mall!

What in God's name are you saying here?

Something I found interesting while reading this story (via the scriptures) is that Mary was not married when she gave birth to the Messiah. For we know that she was pregnant before they were married and Matt 1:25 says that they didn't have any relations until the child was born. In a weird way Jesus was born out of earthly wedlock. Anyone have any thoughts on this one? My thought is that G-D became the husband and father to the child spiritually speaking. Thought it was very interesting.

I was speaking of modesty, faith and humility. Was it that difficult to catch?

Uhmm, if all women lived as Mary, there'd be no human race at all in a very short time.


I was speaking of modesty, faith and humility. Was it that difficult to catch? Mary, may or may not have had other children. Catholics and Orthodox think not, some Protestants think so. That is not the point. I was remarking how different our world is. In there society virginity, humility and faith were extolled.

Christ was not born out of wedlock. In order for him to be "the seed of David" he had to come from Joseph's family naturally or by adoption. Thus, Married and Joseph were married before Christ was born. There is debate over whether Joseph and Mary has marital relations after Mary had Jesus. The words "knew her not til had brought forth Jesus" could possibly mean in Jewish language genre that Mary remained a Virgin for the rest of her life.



Mt.::18Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. 20But while he thought on these things, behold, the 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. 21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. 24Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, ]and took unto him his wife: 25And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
