Hail Mary full of grace, do not be afraid. You have found favor with God. Herod, the puppet king who ruled over the Jews through the Roman army, the Jews rebelled against such oppression. And while Herod הורדוס had some information about the prophesy of a coming king who would soon come to deliver the Jews, and the very focus of the Christmas story, he as all who walk in the darkness, and blind to the light of the gospel did not know which child filled with the holy ghost God prepared to send to the earth as his son קעניג . The Angel Gabriel of the Lord who came to Mary at this time, she proclaimed to let whatever needed to be done to her, done according to the Lord.
The holy land experienced much turmoil during the time of the story of the numerous prophecies received surrounding the time of the conception of Mary with Jesus. With Herod aware of the upcoming of entrance of a saving king for the Jews אידן though, still the evil leader of the Roman empire had no knowledge of the identity of the exact child or baby boy. This is why he massacred many sons of the Hebrew העברעיש community. As one who walked in the darkness, the full light ליכט of the Holy Spirit no more available to him than some of the space community as to why rocket ships only go so far and then no more, God provided the evil leader as he does all of mankind with enough free will to make a decision. But of course, the judgment מישפּעט of God awaits the results of each decision, and each decision made by man is measured by whether the action served the heavenly host in perfect obedience.
One of the most famous unwed, pregnant mothers of all time, Mary the mother of Jesus serves as a perfect example for single mothers מוטערס everywhere. Her total trust in God to allow the Holy Spirit to impregnate her despite her complete knowledge of the danger of persecution and stoning by death, she found courage מוט pursuant in the face of great rejection and even greater odds. Her heroism געוווינהייַט exceeds that of any woman in the world. The motif of the unwed mother as holy saint threads throughout the A & E documentary of this critique of the life a famous holy woman, Mary mother of Jesus. Greatly admired and favored of God and as a weapon of transformation among even men, the legend of her goodness lives forever.
Original 1611 Bible for Matthew chapter 2 ,exact, authentic, original 1611 King James ~
1 Now when Iesus was borne in Bethlehem of Iudea, in the dayes of Herod the king, behold, there came Wise men from the East to Hierusalem 2 Saying, Where is he that is borne King of the Iewes? for we haue seene his Starre in the East, and are come to worship him. 3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Hierusalem with him. 4 And when he had gathered all the chiefe Priests and Scribes of the people together, hee demanded of them where Christ should be borne.
The historical importance of one unwed mother who walked upon the green hills of Northern Galilee, of Nazareth, an ancient text from the first century reveals, according to historians, a story told by the script document as legend. One of the secret mysteries surrounding a portion of the fact hidden life of Mary said that the female heroine’s barren mother, also prayed to God for a child. And the barren Anna, the elderly parent of Mary conceived and gave birth to Mary. It is felt under holy circumstances that a similar God factor that surrounded the conception and birth of Jesus also surrounded the conception and birth of Anna, the mother of Mary, since the barren and elderly Anna asked God to impregnate her with a child like Mary.
Once Mary found herself pregnant with the child of the Holy Ghost, Jesus, she made a visit to the house of her cousin, Elizabeth in order to share a prophesy נעוויעס זאָגן also from the Angel Gabriel for her. Elizabeth, Mary told her she would give birth to a prophet, and of course as is well known, that ruddy prophet, John The Baptist, the man who pronounced the coming of a king for the Jewish people, whose latchets לאַטטשעט he felt unfit to even loosen, warned the masses to prepare their hearts to receive the coming Lord. The circumstances of the proceeding scenario, outlined in most traditional King James Bibles, seemed the beginning of a series of prophetic events outlined in the Hebrew book of Isaiah ישעיה many years hence.
The middle east of her day, at the same time, the people of Mary מרים maintained a kind of traditional lifestyle familiar to her Jewish ancestors. Also synagogue or church worship for her, did not especially mean a building. In addition, worship of God for the Jewish family also included every element of daily life from the time of rising until the time of sunset. Anna found her daughter Mary at risk of her very own life during such a scenario. The punishment during her day for an out of wedlock pregnancy, stoning to the death, Mary fully aware of her difficult choice seemed to accept with great patience such long suffering seemed to require along the often turbulent course of her life.
Once Mary conceived of the Holy Ghost, and after her saving wedding, Joseph יוסף realized the need to travel to Jerusalem. A law in place at the time required the masses of the citizens of the day to travel for long hours, by foot, to give account of the personal details of life much the same way most countries today also do. As fate fell, Mary went into labor and gave birth to Jesus יאָשקע amidst a humble manger, meant primarily for the home of farm animals. her, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising againe of many in Israel: and for a signe which shall be spoken against,
Luke 2:28 Then tooke hee him vp in his armes, and blessed God, and said, 29 Lord now lettest thou thy seruant depart in peace, according to thy word. 30 For mine eyes haue seene thy saluation. 31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people. 32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. 33 And Ioseph and his mother marueiled at those things which were spoken of him. 34 And Simeon blessed them, and said vnto Marie his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising againe of many in Israel: and for a signe which shall be spoken against, 35 (Yea a sword shall pearce thorow thy owne soule also) that the thoughts of many hearts may be reuealed. 36 And there was one Anna a Prophetesse, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser; she was of a great age, and had liued with an husband seuen yeeres from her virginitie.
Despite the fact that Mary later married the man Joseph, he knew and fully accepted marriage to a woman whose child he did not sire. Due to a visitation from the Angel Gabriel, Joseph wed the most famous unwed mother in the world, Mary, daughter of a once barren, Anna, in obedience to God in order to protect her. A main motif of the single mother for this documentary, Joseph although he did not impregnate Mary with Jesus, performed a chivalrous duty by protecting her from the shaming and the shunning of her surrounding community, Joseph already bound to Mary by prior betrothal, and upon the nod of a mere promise, a Jewish marriage technically began at this time. A legal and binding contract of offer and acceptance, and perhaps more binding than even the twentieth century marriages of this day ~ The accepted Jewish method to ascertain a marriage as forever official.
Matthew 1:20 But while hee thought on these things, behold, the Angel of the Lord appeared vnto him in a dreame, saying, Ioseph thou sonne of Dauid, feare not to take vnto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceiued in her, is of the holy Ghost.
If alive today, Mary, her great and unfailing compassion for the desire of the single, unwed mother to raise her child herself today would probably include the support of the ministry of her grown son, Jesus Christ. Congruently, this A & E documentary of my critique spotlights the many mysteries surrounding the word of the King James bible and the Hebrew bible of the Isaiah prophetic concerning the life of Mary. As a female of the Hebrew people over two-thousand years ago, Mary, thought a simple illiterate peasant country girl, likely learned bible scriptures by listening to her mother’s instructions while going about her daily life while cooking and cleaning and serving. The details of each event of this interesting film uncover facts about the life of Jesus’ mother, since some place the main focus on his male disciples, as an often stronger evangelist than the men. Mary even once lectured James and some of the other followers of Jesus for running away from him after his arrest. “A woman many believe served as the founder of the Jerusalem church in the wake of her son’s crucifixion.”
A 1996 documentary film which runs for approximately 44 minutes, from theVisitation to the raising of her son, Jesus Christ, this factual account of the life of Mary, centered on her status as a single, unwed mother in a culture where adulteresses were stoned to death and their male partners set free simply upon the basis of gender ~ Mary faces numerous struggles and tests of faith, and along the way pulls strength from Mary Magdalene and other biblical figures in addition to Jesus crucial to her life.
