Before Joseph and Mary were together, “…she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.” (Matthew 1:18)

                Joseph met Mary and decided to not make her situation public and instead put her away in secret. However as Joseph thought on the situation an angel of the Lord appeared unto him, saying; “…Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for e shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:20-21)

                Joseph did as the angel had told him and married Mary, this fulfilled a prophesy by Isaiah; “…Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14)
