Bible Characters – Jesus' Birth
The arrival of God's son, heralded by Gabriel in his annunciation of Mary as the expectant mother of the Son of God. Jesus birth is described differently in the Gospels of Matthew and Mark. Matthew has the angel speak to Joseph; has them living in Bethlehem; and the wise men are witnesses. Whereas in Luke - Mary is greeted by Gabriel; they live in Nazareth and travel to Bethlehem where Jesus was born in a stable and angels and shepherds witnessed his arrival.
