Author, Irene Baron, stated, “You won’t find any religious story with more angels, miracles and fulfillment of prophecies than in the scriptures about Mary. Her story is astounding! ”

Mary was born of a barren woman in a miraculous manner. Her parents were told by heavenly messengers that Mary was to be the most important woman that will ever be born on Earth. While yet a virgin, in a way unparalleled, Mary was to bring forth the Son of God. God provided the name, Jesus, Immanuel, when He announced the future conception of Mary. According to the signification of the name, Jesus was to become the Savior of all nations. Baron said, “ ‘Jesus, Immanuel’ is the name God gave His Son before Mary’s conception.”

New Testament books were limited to those about Jesus Christ, not His mother.
This book includes a glossary, references and, a list of prophecies from the Old Testament.


Irene Baron began studying ancient scriptures as a teenagerby borrowing books from local churches and personal libraries of many pastors. When NASA sent her almost 70 astronomy computer programs, she researched information about ancient astronomers and their beliefs. With that information and after several years of working with the astronomy software, she discovered the Christmas star and wrote the book, Unraveling the Christmas Star Mystery. Ancient scriptures continued to intrigue her as scrolls several thousand years old were found, translated, studied by experts and found to be almost identical to present day works.

An internationally famous song was produced in 2017 asking questions about Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. Baron found that most people had no idea who Mary was. To correct that lack of knowledge, she researched ancient scriptures, compiled information, and created a historical narrative to make those scriptures understandable by present day readers. She produced the book, MARY KNEW- A Biography About Mary From Ancient Scriptures.
