A s we totter onto the bus in our heels, we’re like any group of girls on our way home from a wedding. We’ve giggled disparagingly at the groom’s premature baldness, given the newlyweds our present (a stainless steel teapot) and told the bride, a young woman from our village, that she looks beautiful.

In a glow of good food and good will, I turn to one of my new friends, Deefa, and say: “Well, I hope she’ll be very happy.”

Deefa replies simply: “She won’t be. He will beat her. But at least he’s very rich.” She chivvies several chickens off a seat and smilingly gestures for me to sit down.

26  In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27  to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28  The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

29  Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30  But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31  You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32  He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33  and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”

35  The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called [ a ] the Son of God. 36  Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37  For no word from God will ever fail.”
