With that said, let us begin at the very "beginning" of the overall Gospel story, when, as each Gospel basically promulgates, an angel from Heaven suddenly appears before Mary, a young maiden, in the middle of the night to notify her that the son of God grows inside her womb. Worthily noted, though the different Gospels basically imply her unwed state, only two of the four clarify that Mary was a virgin no less; see, instead, the Christian doctrine claims God actually impregnated Mary with the future Messiah miraculously (whom accordingly was somehow both a human incarnation of He himself as well as His own "son", notably, as accorded in the "Holy Trinity" doctrine). As events would follow, Mary's pregnancy made her appear to have lost her virginity prior to marriage, an offense which could have had her ostracized. Ultimately in need of a refuge, this problematic situation leads Mary and her much older fiancee, Joseph (who would indeed go on to marry her and act as Jesus' father on Earth), to his hometown of Bethlehem. Then, in the poor conditions of, incredibly, a stable, Mary accordingly gave birth to Jesus Christ, the very figure who Christians would eventually hail the Messiah and "son of God" (and hence the origin of the term 'Christian' to begin with, obviously).
