Ukuzalwa kukaJesu Kristu

(Luk 2:1-7)

18Ukuzalwa kukaJesu Kristu kwema kanje: Unina uMariya wayeyingoduso kaJosefa bezoshada. Kepha bengakashadi kwatholakala ukuthi uMariya usekhulelwe ngoMoya oyiNgcwele kaNkulunkulu. 19UJosefa owayezoba ngumyeni wakhe wayengumuntu oqotho; akathandanga ukumthela ngehlazo uMariya. Wayesebona ukuthi kungakuhle ukuba amale ngasese angakuvezi. 20Kuthe esetshisa lemicabango wabona ingilosi yeNkosi ifika kuye ngephupho elele ithi: “Josefa, wena kaDavide! Ungesabi ukumthatha uMariya abe ngumkakho! Lomntwana amthweleyo umkhulelwe ngesu loMoya oyiNgcwele. 21UMariya uyozala indodana uyiqambe igama uthi nguJesu, ngoba iyosindisa abantu bayo ezonweni zabo.”

22Konke lokhu kwenzeka ukuba kugcwaliseke okwashiwo nguSimakade endulo ngomlomo womphrofethi kwathiwa: 23“Intombi esagcwele iyokhulelwa izale indodana bayethe igama bayibize ngelokuthi nguImanuweli” (okusho ukuthi: “UNkulunkulu unathi”).

24UJosefa wavuka wakwenza lokho ayekuthunywe yingilosi yeNkosi. Wathatha uMariya waba ngumkakhe, 25kepha akaze aya kuye engakabelethi. UMariya wazala indodana, uJosefa wayiqamba wathi nguJesu.
