Every part of the Jesus story points to the fact that Mary was not pregnant by any human means. Last Christmas' TV play "The Nativity" made much of the anguish that the pregnancy created in Joseph and Mary. If there was the slightest suspicion of extra-marital sexual activity, the social mores of the day would insist that the "relationship" be terminated and the woman "sent away". The shame would have been unbearable for Joseph, for Mary and for their families. The fact that they stayed together proves that there was much more to the "event" than can be "explained away".
