The Annunciation of the Birth of Jesus (Isaiah 9: 6-7, Matthew 1:22-23, Luke 1:28-33)

God made preparation for the birth of Jesus so that He can save the world from sin.

  • Man needs forgiveness of his sins, to continue a good relationship with God.
  • Man needs to be set free and delivered from evil and wicked influences, so that he (man) can experience righteousness and spiritual strength.
  • There is a need for peace, justice, righteousness, and government in the world.

However, the call of Abraham was an in-depth and generational preparation for the coming of the Messiah.

In the Old Testament, God used the prophet Isaiah to announce the birth of Jesus.

“Behold, a young woman (virgin) shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel” (which means, God, is with us)

In the New Testament, the announcement of the birth of Jesus was made by God through the angel Gabriel to Mary. 

Mary was a young Jewish woman who lived with her parents in Nazareth, a town in Galilee. She was a virgin. She was engaged to be married to Joseph, a descendant of David.

The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”  Mary was worried, but the angel said to her.

“do not be afraid Mary, for you have 

favour with God. and behold, you will

conceive in the womb and bear a son.

and you shall call his name Jesus.

he will be great and will be called

the son of the most high, and the 

lord will give him the throne of 

his father David, and he will reign

over the house of Jacob forever,

and of his kingdom there will be 

No end” (Luke 1:30-33)

Mary asked how would this be? The angel assured her that:

“the holy spirit will come upon you,

and the power of the most high will

overshadow you, therefore, the child

to be born will be called holy

the son of God.” (Luke 1:34-35)
