What would Mary look like today? Estimates range from 14 to 18 years old. She was a typical girl. No one knew her as the mother of Jesus. She was just a young unmarried teenage girl who found herself pregnant.
If she lived today, would she drive? Have an iPhone? Pierced ears? Nose ring? Carry a backpack to school? Would she be white, Hispanic, black, Asian?
How would we view her? Would we accept her? Judge her?
Matthew 1:18 His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
