The Nativity Story: Gabriel, Mary and Joseph

A disbelieving Joseph was about to leave Mary with accusation of adultery as he was sure he was not the father to her child. That night the archangel Gabriel appears to him and he was astonished at the sight. Gabriel asks him fear not and that she was here to bring good news. Mary was telling the truth when she said that she was with child and that the Child was the son of God that will bring joy to the world. Joseph now understanding his mistake returns to Mary who was still depressed at Joseph not believing her. He asks Mary for her forgiveness and promises to care for her and the child as if it was his own flesh and blood. Together with Gabriel beside them, they celebrated the good news and looks towards the future.
