The Theotokos – the “God-Bearer”
The Virgin Mary was proclaimed the Theotokos (Θεοτόκος – Greek for “Mother of God”) at the Ecumenical Council of Ephesus in 431 A.D. The Virgin Mary is the Theotokos because she gave birth not to a human being but to God as a human being. A young woman (probably still but a teenager) said “Yes!” to God’s plan for her life and for the life of the world through her. In Mary – a simple young woman living in a small town in a remote corner of the Roman Empire – God indeed “has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble” (Luke 1:52).
