About 2,000 years ago, there was a king named Herod who use to rule in Judea( in recent time it is the part of Israel). At that time there was a girl named Mary with Joseph, they lived in Nazareth.
God sent an angel- Gabriel to them. that angel said to Mary- ‘Peace be with you! God has blessed you and is pleased with you.’
Mary wondered what this angel is saying, she was even scared to see a creature like an angel in her home. Then again angel said ‘Don’t be afraid, God has been very kind to you. You will become pregnant by the Holy Spirit and give birth to a baby boy and you will call him Jesus. He will be God’s own Son and his kingdom will never end.’ Mary trusted God and yelled- ‘Let it happen as God chooses.
Gabriel told Mary that her cousin named Elizabeth is also pregnant with a baby boy to prepare the way for Jesus. She was shocked as her cousin was aged and she along with others thought that she cannot conceive due to her age. but after hearing this she went to see her.
Mary stayed with her cousin Elizabeth for about three months and then return to her home.
