    Jesus is, without a doubt, the true son of God the Father. In addition, there is significant evidence to support that He is God Man.

    We have several people in this class that are gentlemen and gentlewomen farmers. I helped my mother and dad who loved to garden as a youngster. To say that I loved to working in the garden as a youngster would classify as a whooper of a lie. So I don’t claim any great knowledge as a gardener.

Many have tried to discredit the story of Mary and Joseph, her husband, saying a virgin becoming pregnant and giving birth is simply not possible.

This is seemingly how her…
