Parvulus enim natus est nobis, et filius datus est nobis (For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given) (Isaiah 9:6).

At the top of the window, Isaiah holds a scroll foretelling the birth of Jesus, which is shown in the Nativity scene below.

Verbum caro factum est, et habitavit in nobis: et vidimus gloriam ejus (The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory) (John 1:14).

Lower: The Annunciation to the shepherds. Next to the angel is a scroll on which is written Ecce evangelizo (Behold, I bring you [good tidings of great joy]) (Luke 2:10).
