A Middle Eastern Christmas Perspective

The familiar Christmas story is much more meaningful for those who live in the Middle East. Drawing from the rich background of the Iranian culture and history, the following observations help give a better understanding of the events that took place on Christmas.

Mary – Her Relation to Joseph

Matthew 1:18 and Luke 1:27 state that Mary was pledged to be married (NIV) or espoused (King James) or betrothed (NASV) or engaged to be married (LB) to Joseph. The problem with any English translation is that there is no word in English which can be used to translate accurately Mary’s relationship to Joseph.

In the West, usually there are two steps after courtship—engagement and marriage. The engagement is entered into by both the man and woman but can be broken by just one of the parties involved.
