Young Mary of Nazareth has been blessed. The angel Gabriel has told her that she will be the mother the Messiah long promised by the heavenly Father. But she lives in a society where purity is required and out-of-wedlock pregnancy is punishable by death.
Mary knows how important this child will be, and she believes the Lord will keep her safe. Although Joseph struggles to understand Mary’s situation, he stands beside her and defends her from those who would do her harm. Only after the baby is born does the young couple begin to realize the impact of their son, especially when they are visited first by shepherds and later by a trio of wise men.
After Jesus’ birth, Mary is constantly aware of God’s plan. She listens to Him, spends time in prayer, and faces the joys and struggles of motherhood. Above all, she knows that God has a special plan for her son, and as Jesus grows, so does her faith. Yet it isn’t until after He is crucified that she realizes the true significance of His life.
“The Long, Long Shadow” offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the life of the mother of Jesus.
