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 Child Immanuel

 10Then the LORD spoke again to Ahaz, saying,

 11"Ask a (A)sign for yourself from the LORD your God; make it deep as Sheol or high as heaven."

 12But Ahaz said, "I will not ask, nor will I test the LORD!"

 13Then he said, "Listen now, O (B)house of David! Is it too slight a thing for you to try the patience of men, that you will (C)try the patience of (D)my God as well?

 14"Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, (E)a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name [a](F)Immanuel.

Jesus' Birth Foretold

 26Now in the sixth month the angel (A)Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee called (B)Nazareth,

 27to (C)a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, (D)of the descendants of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.

 28And coming in, he said to her, "Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you."

 29But she (E)was very perplexed at this statement, and kept pondering what kind of salutation this was.

 30The angel said to her, "(F)Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God.

 31"And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you (G)shall name Him Jesus.

 32"He will be great and will be called the Son of (H)the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him (I)the throne of His father David;

 33(J)and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, (K)and His kingdom will have no end."

 34Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I am a virgin?"

 35The angel answered and said to her, "(L)The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of (M)the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason (N)the holy Child shall be called (O)the Son of God.

 36"And behold, even your relative Elizabeth has also conceived a son in her old age; and she who was called barren is now in her sixth month.

 37"For (P)nothing will be impossible with God."

 38And Mary said, "Behold, the [a]bondslave of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her.
