Christmas Story

In this Christmas story Mary should also be a focus , imagine a poor, unwed young woman living in patriarchal Palestine and ancient world engage to be married finding out she is pregnant with a child. You could imagine what Mary situation was. she could easily be stone. The Bible does not tell us how Mary’s parents react but you could you imagine. She must have felt alone, ashamed and no where to turn too but to her fiancee who she was not sure would take her and her child. Mary was at the mercy of her family, society and Joseph. something a lot of mothers today can identify with. The true Christmas story is a young , unwed woman did the best she could with what she had.
