Did Mary know what was going to happen to her? Yes, she did know! All of Galilee knew why Mary was born by the time she was one year old. God named, blessed, and ordained Mary to be the mother of Jesus, Immanuel, before her conception.
This biographical data about Mary was obtained from ancient scriptures. Written as a historical narrative, MARY KNEW is filled with information about angels, miracles and fulfilled prophecies that occurred within the holy family.
It includes biographical information about Mary’s parents, her birth and first three years of being secluded in her parent’s home with her diet and restrictions governed by God. At age three, she was taken to the Jerusalem Temple where she lived over a decade and was attended daily by angels. The difficulties of her parents, Anna and Joachim, are described, along with the phenomenal and beautiful birth of a God, Jesus Christ, Savior of the world. Her story remained popular because it is filled with angels, miracles and fulfillment of ancient prophecies.
The primary scriptures about Mary were written by James, the youngest son of Joseph and stepbrother of Lord Jesus. James lived in his father’s home and accompanied Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem along with two of his brothers. He was an eye witness during Mary’s pregnancy and the events surrounding the virgin birth of Jesus, Immanuel.
James and his scribes write Mary’s story. James left a signed written document verifying his testimony. The primary book he authored was the Protevangelion, a historical account of the Virgin Mary and the birth of Christ. A copy of his testimony is below.
SIGNED TESTIMONY OF JAMES: “I , James, wrote this History in Jerusalem; and when the disturbance was, I retired into a desert place until the death of Herod. And the disturbance ceased at Jerusalem. That which remains is, that I glorify God that he hath given me such wisdom to write unto you who are spiritual, and who love God; to whom there be glory and dominion for ever and ever, Amen.”
James became a chief Apostle and Jerusalem’s first Bishop of the Christians. His written testimony and other scriptures about Mary and Jesus Christ were used in the early Christian churches for hundreds of years.

This is a book that makes you wonder about the life of one of the most well-known individuals in Christian history, the mother of Jesus Christ. It’s written in a very lovely, simple style that reads like fiction (with tons of accurate historical and Biblical references).
