God had sent the ark angel Gabriel to tell Zacharias that he was going to be a father. Zacharias didn’t believe and God took his voice until John the Baptist was born. Gabriel had other task to do. He appeared to Mary, mother of Jesus, and told her she would become pregnant. And His name would be Jesus. He would save His people from sin. Then Gabriel told Mary that her cousin Elizabeth was pregnant. Mary believed and went to be with Elizabeth. I’m sure that Mary told Joseph. And he had a hard time believing. Joseph was a righteous man and believed God. When Mary returned to Nazareth, she was 3 months pregnant and Joseph had to make a decision. Was he going to take Mary as his wife or not? While he thought on this, the ark angel Gabriel appeared to him in a dream. Gabriel told Joseph that this was of God and to take Mary as his wife. The bible says that he awoke and took Mary as his wife. And didn’t know her until Jesus was born. Matt.1 Luke 1.
