Significant Events:
Nephi saw in vision the Savior’s mother in Nazareth (1 Ne. 11:13-22). The angel Gabriel told Mary she would bear the Savior (Luke 1:26-35). Gabriel told Joseph to take Mary to wife and to name her son Jesus (Matt. 1:18-25). Jesus grew up in Nazareth (Matt. 2:19-23; Luke 2:4-40; 4:16). He preached his first sermon and announced in the synagogue that he was the Messiah (Luke 4:16-21), but the people of Nazareth rejected him (Matt. 13:54-58; Luke 4:22-30).
