Mary begets Jesus.

The Qoheleth Team of women, Leve Fanm Yo has chosen to approach the most important woman in the genealogy of Jesus. She is blessed among all women. The Bible does not tell us much about her in relation to her past.

However, the proto-gospel of James tells us that his parents are called Anne and Joaqim. Her mother was sterile like all the great women in the Bible. The couple prayed and fasted for six weeks. At the end of this period, Anne conceives and gives birth to Marie. Anne dedicated her to the temple as was the case with the mother of the prophet Samuel from the age of three and Mary remained there until she gave birth to Yeshua'h (Iahve saves) who is also called Emmanuel. . (Iahve with us) or Christ (King).

Luke gives us more information on the place of the annunciation, Nazareth, the Galilee of the Nations according to Isaiah (9.1) marking an opening to all "inhabitants of the earth, to any nation, to any tribe, to any language, and to all people ”.

Jesus of Nazareth, the Nazarene, fulfilled with astonishment the two great covenants made with Abraham in Genesis 12 and 15 and with David in 2 Samuel 7.

This character coming from a territory which does not have the good fame will be a revolutionary according to Simeon who was destined to bring the fall and the relief of many in Israel. Thus the priests, the scribes, the Levites who did not follow him have fallen, but the modest ones who follow him have joy, salvation.

Marie understands that this conception is revolutionary, destabilizing, demoralizing by asking the angel how it will be done?

You will be covered by the Ruah, the spirit of God and the unborn child will be yours alone. "Jacob begot Joseph, the husband of Mary, from whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ" [Mt ​​1:16].

Thus Joseph will not be the natural or legitimate father but a legal father who will take care of him.

God included not only women in the genealogy of Jesus but also a begetting by the Ruah, the holy spirit to mark a break with the known forms of begetting, in order to put the pride of men in its place. This form of birth without the sperm of any man elevates the woman in dignity that Joseph has taken note of by respecting the choices of the other. He relativizes patriarchal power.

"Jacob begot Joseph, husband of Mary, from whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ" in relation to verse 2 of Matthew 1.16 "

It is a completely revolutionary story in which we recall the great victories won by women over patriarchal power. When Mary visited her cousin Elisabeth, the latter uttered a loud cry and said: You are blessed among women, and the fruit of your womb is blessed. [Luke 1.42]

Judges 5.24: "Blessed be among the women Jaël, Wife of Héber, the Kenite! Blessed be she among the women who live in the tents!"

Judith 13.18: Then King Uzziah said:

"Judith, my dear, the Most High God has blessed you more than any other woman on earth. How praiseworthy is the Lord God who created the heavens and the earth! He guided you as you cut off your heads. of our deadliest enemy ".

13He will love you, bless you and multiply you; he will bless the fruit of your womb [Dt7]

The Magnificat of Mary, verses 46-55 of Luke 1, is a hymn that praises the new covenant as an event that revolutionizes the current situation: the uplifting of the humble, women, children, slaves, strangers and all who suffer from a lack. With the incarnation and the birth of Jesus we live in joy, in hope, in the already there of the Kingdom.

Mary's agreement with joy and piety to the angel allows God to be incarnated in the saint of Mary's womb for the salvation of the world. By her pure and simple acceptance, Mary facilitated the lowering of the divinity to humanity but also the elevation of humanity to the divinity. It is thanks to the systematic, unconditional and radical "yes" of Mary who completely puts an end to the sacrificial world, to the world of opulence and the proud to rediscover a world of women of kindness, love, mercy, who praise God with their lips by showing that they have mastered the scriptures and the art of composing hymns and praises. The incarnation of Yeshua'h was a Pentecost, it was a revelation of the spirit to the two cousins, Mary and Elizabeth, to the prophetess Anna, to Joseph, to the shepherds, to the Magi, to Simeon. It is not without reason that some researchers specify that "the future of humanity belongs to women". »The woman is therefore, in the Bible, the central character who decides and brings the world to life over time.

Shalom and Shalom!
