Mary, the Mother of Jesus, Portrayed in a Bible Video

This is the time of year when we are most likely to read the first two chapters of the Gospel of Luke. Mary, the mother of Jesus figures prominently in the narrative. The Book of Mormon describes Mary as “A virgin, most beautiful and fair above all other virgins.”

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released a video portraying the life of Mary based on the Church's Bible videos series.  


As Professor Susan Easton Black of Brigham Young University put it, “By word and deed, Mary, the mother of Jesus, teaches devoted followers of her son about the significant virtues of a true disciple. Although little of Mary’s life is actually recorded, what is recorded reveals a pattern of righteousness...faithful obedience to the word of God...expressive joy for God’s blessings ...readiness to receive God’s witness and counsel from His servants, and...rearing a posterity who glorified God.”
