The Annunciation | Bible Preschool Lesson Plan Printable Activities
Printable Bell Angel
| The biblical story of The
Annunciation is one that is very appropriate for Mother's
Day, May: Mary's Month, and for March 25th- Feast of the
Annunciation or anytime of the year.
The event of The Annunciation is a major turning point and relevant to Christians. In the Old Testament God made a covenant with the children of Israel. In the New Testament we read about the "New" covenant God brings to all people. The new covenant, or promise, is about Jesus: His birth, life, death and resurrection, and how He brings hope to people all over the world.
For Christians, the event of the The Annunciation is the beginning of that promise fulfilled when Angel Gabriel announces to Mary that she will bear a child and that He will be the Son of God.
