Then the angel told her:
Do not be afraid, Mary,for you have found favor with God.Now listen:You will conceive and give birth to a son,and you will call His name Jesus.He will be greatand will be called the Son of the Most High,and the Lord God will give Himthe throne of His father David.He will reign over the house of Jacob forever,and His kingdom will have no end.
Mary asked the angel, “How can this be, since I have not been intimate with a man?”
The angel replied to her:
“The Holy Spirit will come upon you,and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.Therefore, the holy One to be bornwill be called the Son of God.
