The story of Jesus did not start with, “And a virgin will conceive and bear a son…” Long before those words were spoken God was preparing the world for his Son. Jesus’ story was set in the Biblical story so that he could become a part of our story. And seeing what has happened in the past will help propel forward what will happen in the future for the Kingdom of God.
Romans 1:1-7 1 Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, 2 which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, 3 concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh 4 and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, 5 through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, 6 including you who are called to belong to Jesus Christ,
7 To all those in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
