In celebration of Mother's Day and in honor of Mary, the mother of Jesus, the Church has produced a new video featuring some of the New Testament stories she is part of. The video was compiled from previously filmed scenes produced by the Church. The video can be found online at lds.org/bible-videos.
Mary the mother of Jesus is one of the most beloved women from the New Testament. From the mouth of an angel, Mary was identified as a woman with a divine part in the plan of our Heavenly Father. "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" (Luke 1:28).
Although there is not a lot of information about Mary in the New Testament, there are some choice verses that reflect her character. In the first chapter of Luke, we catch a glimpse into the soul of Mary in her own words. "And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation" (Luke 1:46-50).
