MATTHEW AND LUKE CONFLICT
Matthew claims Joseph received the pregnancy announcement, but Luke says it was made to Mary.
“But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.”
~King James Bible, Matthew 1:20~
“To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.”
~King James Bible, Luke 1:27-28~
