Christmas didn't just "happen." It was God's prophecy fulfilled. Here's today's Bible Minute.
In Luke chapter 1, verse 30, the Virgin Mary is being told that she is the one selected by God to bear the Savior of the world. "Then the angel said to her, 'Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son and shall call His name Jesus.'"
Seven hundred years before the birth of Christ, there was a prophecy that said that a virgin would conceive. Isaiah 7:14: "The Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel." God will actually come to earth and live among us.
