Annunciation of our Lord


Collect (LSB)

O Lord, as we have known the incarnation of Your Son Jesus Christ by the message of the angel to the Virgin Mary, so by the message of His cross and passion bring us to the glory of His resurrection; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Old Testament (LSB): Isaiah 7:10-14


The Sign of Immanuel

 10Again the LORD spoke to Ahaz, 11"Ask(A) a sign of the LORD your[a] God; let it be deep as Sheol or high as heaven." 12But Ahaz said, "I will not ask, and I will not put the LORD to the test." 13And he[b] said, "Hear then, O house of David! Is it too little for you to weary men, that you(B) weary my God also? 14Therefore the(C) Lord himself will give you a sign.(D) Behold, the(E) virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name(F) Immanuel.[c]

Birth of Jesus Foretold

 26In the sixth month the angel(A) Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named(B) Nazareth, 27(C) to a virgin betrothed[a] to a man whose name was Joseph,(D) of the house of David. And the virgin’s name was Mary. 28And he came to her and said, "Greetings,(E) O favored one,(F) the Lord is with you!"[b] 29But(G) she was greatly troubled at the saying, and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be. 30And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for(H) you have found favor with God. 31And behold,(I) you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and(J) you shall call his name Jesus. 32He will be great and will be called the Son of(K) the Most High. And the Lord God(L) will give to him the throne of(M) his father David, 33and he will reign over the house of Jacob(N) forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end."

 34And Mary said to the angel, "How will this be, since I am a virgin?"[c]

 35And the angel answered her,(O) "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of(P) the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born[d] will be called(Q) holy—(R) the Son of God. 36And behold, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son, and this is the sixth month with her(S) who was called barren. 37For(T) nothing will be impossible with God." 38And Mary said, "Behold, I am the servant[e] of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word." And(U) the angel departed from her.
