A baby changes everything.Especially when that baby is the Messiah.Nobody believed Mary.Nobody.She claimed that the baby she carried was Gods Son. Her outraged family quite naturally assumed that the father was her betrothed, Joseph. He, on the other hand, was devastated by the thought of his beloved with another man. And it didnt actually matter to the villagers who the father wasthis juicy morsel of gossip was viciously satisfying.Nobody in Nazareth cared that their ancient Jewish prophecies foretold the Messiahs virgin birth. An unwed mother was, well, an unwed mother. And they didnt trust her blasphemous tale. That self-righteous girl would invent an outrageous story to disguise her sin. Never mind their own sins, she was guilty. She deserved to die.

This is the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus and her life in the Biblical culture during the months before Jesus was born. The focus is on what the life and culture was like and how difficult it must have been for Mary to be pregnant before her marriage to Joseph. Read full review
