  1. “A VIRGIN HAS A BABY? YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING!” Text questions to 519 616 4004

  2. Our goal today is to be confident about the truthfulness of the virgin birth of Jesus and in some measure understand and be able to defend the Biblical teaching regarding the virgin birth. Text questions to 519 616 4004

  3. The virgin birth of Jesus is the belief that Mary miraculously conceived Jesus while remaining a virgin. Text questions to 519 616 4004

  4. There are 2 miracles here . . .  The virgin conception.  The incarnation of God. Text questions to 519 616 4004

  5. "I would like to ask Him if He was indeed virgin-born. The answer to that question would define history for me'." Larry King CNN Text questions to 519 616 4004

  6. CHALLENGES TO THE BIBLICAL TEACHING OF THE VIRGIN BIRTH “The Virgin Birth is only found in two places in the New Testament . . . Matthew and Luke. It is not found in the earlier New Testament books. This is probably because it had not been made up yet. It is not mentioned at all by Paul, John, Peter and others because it never happened.” Text questions to 519 616 4004

  7. Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a human being, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! The Apostle Paul - Philippians 2:6-8

  8. CHALLENGES TO THE BIBLICAL TEACHING OF THE VIRGIN BIRTH “Matthew’s quote of an Old Testament prophesy about a virgin having a baby and applying it to Jesus is a deliberate mistranslation designed to boost Jesus’ credentials in the eyes of people. Simply put, there is no prophesy about a virgin conceiving and giving birth to a son.” Matthew 1:18-25p 889 Text questions to 519 616 4004

  9. “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14 (p. 637) ALMAH BETULAH PARTHENOS Text questions to 519 616 4004

  10. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this. Isaiah 9:6-7 Text questions to 519 616 4004

  11. CHALLENGES TO THE BIBLICAL TEACHING OF THE VIRGIN BIRTH “The virgin birth story is a “copy cat” idea taken from pagan mythology and brought into Christianity to elevate Jesus.” Text questions to 519 616 4004

  12. • Similar stories do not demand “copy cat” motives. • Myths are fictional stories and Jesus’ birth is an historical event. • Is the story that supposedly parallels the virgin birth account accurate? • Are the original stories really parallel to Jesus’ virgin birth? • The differences in the accounts are far greater than the similarities to suggest they are copied. Text questions to 519 616 4004

  13. “The literature of the world is prolific with narratives of unusual births, but it contains no precise analogy to the virgin birth in Matthew and Luke. Jesus’ ‘virgin birth’ is not ‘pagan’” Thomas Boslooper, The Virgin Birth (p 136) Text questions to 519 616 4004
