Advent II

The Birth of Jesus is Foretold to Mary

1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
1:27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
1:28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
1:29  And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
1:30    And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
1:31    And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
1:32    He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
1:33    And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
1:34    Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
1:35    And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
1:36    And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
1:37    For with God nothing shall be impossible.
1:38    And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

December 8th is Pretend To Be A Time Traveller Day – well as I was saying just next Tuesday only 15 more days ’til Christmas.

      1. I read the book after watching the series. The book has its well-deserved-cult-status charms, but quite frankly I thought the series was better. The series will have its own well-deserved cult status in time, if it does not already have it.

  1. I have never relaxed or enjoyed Advent which seemed to be a timeclock toward getting all done in time for christmas. The 3rd week – the pink candle – doesn’t evoke joy as panic .
