Mary's Story

Luke 1:26-56 tells us the Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary before she and Joseph were married and announced that she would have a special baby—Jesus, God's Son! These Mary's Story activity pages highlight that special visit and Jesus' miraculous birth. Jesus was the promised Messiah of the Old Testament who was both physical (of Mary) and spiritual (of the Holy Spirit). How happy Mary must have been!
