The Lord himself will give you this sign: the virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and shall name him Immanuel. (Is 7:14)
And 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 bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there will be no end.” (Lk 1:30-33)
Behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary for your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit; she will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken to the prophet: “Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanu-el” (which means, God with us. (Mt 1: 20-23)
The Prophecy Fulfilled
And in that region were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were so afraid. And the angel said to them, “Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will come to all people; for unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign unto you: you will find a babe wrappe din swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased!” (Lk 2: 8-14)
