based on Matthew 1: 18-25
We hear the scriptures every Christmas about the angel Gabriel coming to Mary and declaring that she will give birth to the son of God, even though she has never been with a man. Mary is venerated throughout church history as Jesus’ mother who gives him his human nature. Does this mean Mary really had a miraculous pregnancy? What might it mean for our faith in Jesus if it wasn’t?
