Narration (1)
Language: English 
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was in this wise: when as his mother
Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was 
found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, was minded to put her 
away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the 
angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream.

"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."

"He shall be great; and shall be called the Son of the Highest: 
Emmanuel, God with us."
