Gen 3:But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, or you will die.

Gen 3:And the serpent said to the woman, You will not surely die:

Gen 3:5 For God knows that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes will be opened, and you will be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Luke 1:26 The angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, you that are highly favored, the Lord is with you: blessed are you among women. 29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for you have found favor with God.  31 And, behold, you shall conceive in your womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call his name Jesus.

32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David:

33 And he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there will be no end.

34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How will this be, seeing I know not a man?

35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost will come upon you , and the power of the Highest will overshadow you : therefore also that holy thing which will be born of you will be called the Son of God. — 37 For with God nothing will be impossible.

38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to your word. And the angel departed from her.


Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately.

20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, fear not to take  Mary as your wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21 And she will bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he will save his people from their sins.

22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

23 Behold, a virgin will be with child, and will bring forth a son, and they will call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. 24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: 25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.

Gal 4:4 When the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law

Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which will be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this [will be] a sign unto you; You  will find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord has made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. 17 And when they had seen [it], they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. 18 And all they that heard [it] wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. … 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

Rev 7:9-10 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
