Bible: Matt 1:20-25

1:20 When he had contemplated this, an 1  angel of the Lord 2  appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 1:21 She will give birth to a son and you will name him 3  Jesus, 4  because he will save his people from their sins.” 1:22 This all happened so that what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet would be fulfilled: 1:23 Look! The virgin will conceive and bear a son, and they will call him 5  Emmanuel,” 6  which means 7 God with us.” 8  1:24 When Joseph awoke from sleep he did what the angel of the Lord 9  told him. He took his wife, 1:25 but did not have marital relations 10  with her until she gave birth to a son, whom he named 11  Jesus.
