Jan. 5. Impending Birth of Jesus Announced to Joseph

Mt. 1:18-25

After Joseph learned that Mary was expecting a baby, he was concerned about her honor. An angel appeared to him in a dream and told him to not be afraid to take Mary as his wife, “For that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
