Jesus Out Of Wedlock?

Jesus Out Of Wedlock

Dear Wisdom,

Please help us to better embrace the meaning of Christmas.

Jesus was to be born to a couple who became pregnant out of wedlock, a serious social problem in those days.

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about:

His mother Mary, was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph, her husband, was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

Matthew 1:18

 What is the meaning of having the Savior of mankind born to a couple out of wedlock, thus seriously shunned by society. Having a child is stressful enough. Being rejected by the clan while having the child adds to the stress. What is the meaning of this added stress in the birth and life of Jesus?  Thank YOU!

Care to comment, Wisdom?


The Son of God was not born to save just that era of time.

The Christ Is to help mankind throughout the ages.

The birth was meant to be humble.

The Old Testament stated of the coming of the Son of God.

It was assumed it would be a royal birth with all the pomp and ceremony.

Births of boys born to the wealthy were assumed to be the One.

The child was lavished with gifts and treated as if they were to conquer the world.

They were spoiled and grew up thinking everyone else was beneath their awareness.

Jesus birth was the exact opposite.

He was born with animals surrounding Him for warmth.

There was no silk sheets or priests attending.

It was ridiculous to think God’s Son, who could have had anything, was born in such squalor.

This was intentional.

The Christ Within would not just be for the wealthy.

The Son of God Is for every man, woman and child.

*Jesus was the “ underdog”.

*The birth was perfect in order for all people to be able to know they will not be turned away.

There is no one that God does not love.

Humans naturally judge.

Jesus never judges.

The excuse of being poor or undeserving can never be used as an excuse.

Jesus just waits patiently.

            Thank you so much, Wisdom, with joy.

            You are welcome, little “chickadee”.

A chickadee has a distinctive chirping sound to its mother even if there are many baby birds around.

Jesus recognizes every one of His children and wants to comfort them.

Jesus isn’t looking for special words or money.

He is just waiting for the key to your heart.

All you need to do is open the door.
