The gospels say us about the story that many years before Jesus birth. Prophets had told a promise to the Jewish people that God would send them a Massiah or holy teacher. Christians believes that the promised Massiah was Jesus. His mother was a young woman called Mary, who was engaged, but not yet married. She was engaged with a boy whose name was Joseph and who was carpenter. After some days Joseph found that Marry was pregnant and was upset. So Joseph was wondering and thinking that what he had to do. After that one night an angle came from God to tell him that the baby was holy one. The angle said that he must name the baby. This was a sign that he would take care of it like his own child. Joseph accepted the baby and named Jesus as he promised the angle.
