The angel said:

Luke 1:30-35 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. 34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

The message elements are these:

  1. Mary had found "favour” or grace in God’s sight — that is she had been especially chosen for a great work
  2. She would bear a son and call him Jesus or Yahshua [Joshua] which means Yahweh is salvation
  3. He shall be given the throne of David [which was in Jerusalem] see 2 Samuel 7:12-14; Matthew 1:1; 6:10
  4. He shall reign over the house of Jacob [i.e. Israel]
  5. His Kingdom will be everlasting
  6. The birth would be "virginal"
  7. The child would be "the son of God”
