  The Virgin Birth circumvented the transmission of the sin nature and allowed the eternal God to become a perfect man. Recommended Resource: The Case for Christmas by Lee Strobel More insights from your Bible study - Get Started with Logos Bible Software for Free! The virgin birth of Jesus, which is a cornerstone of Christianity (and, as it happens, is important in Islam as well), is described in clear terms in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. Matthew (Matt ) says that Jesus Christ is born to Mary, who becomes pregnant before having sex with her betrothed, Joseph.

The doctrine of the virgin birth is, therefore, inseparably bound to both the claims and character of Jesus Christ. Though there are several portions of scripture which might be studied with profit relative to this theme, this article will deal primarily with Matthew chapter one, summarizing that apostle’s inspired arguments for the virgin.   The accounts of Jesus’s birth in Matthew (chapter 1) and Luke (chapters ) are clear and unequivocal: Jesus’s birth was not ordinary. He was not an ordinary child, and his conception did not come about in the ordinary way. His mother Mary was a virgin, having had no intercourse prior to conception and birth. By the Holy Spirit, Mary’s womb became the cradle of the Son’s incarnation Author: Kevin Deyoung.

The doctrine of the virgin birth also reveals a key element in God’s plan for redemption. Lewis addresses two important issues with regards to Jesus’ identity and divine nature. In Mere Christianity he clarifies that the virgin birth is not a reference to the “only begotten” as if it were the creation of Christ itself,Author: Juan Valdes.   The virgin birth does not stand alone as a biblical doctrine, it is an irreducible part of the biblical revelation about the person and work of Jesus Christ. With it, the Gospel stands or falls. This much we know: All those who find salvation will be saved by the atoning work of Jesus the Christ, the virgin-born Savior.

The conclusion to which we are obliged to come is that if the doctrine of the virgin birth of Christ did not originate in fact, modern critical investigation has at any rate not yet succeeded in showing how it did originate.” (Pg. ) Later, he adds, “even if the belief in the virgin birth is not necessary to Cited by: Richard Shenk’s The Virgin Birth Christ Paternoster My sister gave me this book to read, and I found it to be thought provoking and introduced me to a new consideration of the way the virgin birth of Christ is imbedded in the total story of the Bible.5/5(5).

The Origin and Transmission of the Lucan Narrative VI. The Virgin Birth and the Gospel of John I have pointed out that our earliest Gospel, Mark, not only is lacking a story of the virgin birth but also tells a story that seems to run precisely counter to the idea that Jesus’ mother knew that his birth was miraculous, unlike the later Gospels of Matthew and Luke.

The question of the Virgin Birth of Jesus has been one of the most widely discussed, as well as one of the most disputed, subjects in the whole range of Christian doctrine. This encyclopaedic study achieved a wide reputation when it was first published, and it is well known on both sides of the Atlantic, but in recent years has been virtually /5.

Professor James Orr states in his great book, "The Virgin Birth of Christ": "The objection from the virgin birth of Christ book of 'almah' was, as we learn from Justin Martyr, Origen and other fathers, one urged by the Jews against the Christian interpretation of the passage from earliest times.

The Protevangelium The first hint in the Old Testament that the coming Christ would be born of a virgin occurs right at the beginning. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed: it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

The Anglican Communion, Eastern Orthodoxy, Protestant faith groups and Roman Catholicism have taught the "virgin birth," although the term "virgin conception" would be much more has long been one of the Christianity's foundational beliefs, along with the inerrancy of the Bible; the God's inspiration of the authors of the Bible; the atonement, resurrection, and the anticipated.

For the fundamentalists, the Virgin Birth is a consequence of belief in inerrancy, Christ’s deity, and the belief in the miraculous.

This is one large reason why it was singled it out for. The virgin birth of Jesus is the doctrine that Jesus was conceived and born by his mother Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit and without sexual intercourse with her husband Joseph.

The Catholic church holds it authoritative for faith and Protestants regard it as an explanation of the mixture of the human and divine natures of Jesus, but the consensus of modern scholars is that its.

Without the virgin birth, there would be no salvation for sinners. Jesus Christ would be a sinful human being. If the virgin birth did not occur, then the Bible is not true and cannot be trusted.

In short, it is an essential part of salvation and of Scripture. Moody believes and teaches the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. 1 Luke 2 Luke   To throw out the virgin birth is to reject Christ’s deity, the accuracy and authority of Scripture, and a host of other related doctrines central to the Christian faith.

No issue is more important to our understanding of who Jesus is than the virgin birth. “Some people see the virgin birth as a nonessential point.

It is not. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.

And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away secretly. The Second Book of Enoch contains a section, called Exaltation of Melchizedek, which says that Melchizedek was born of a virgin, Sofonim (or Sopanima), the wife of Nir, a brother of Noah.

The child came out from his mother after she had died and sat on the bed beside her corpse, already physically developed, clothed, speaking and blessing the.

How long wilt thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter. for the Lord hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man. Modern theology does not grant that Isa., vii, 14, contains a real prophecy fulfilled in the virgin birth of Christ; it must maintain, therefore, that St.
