Scripture Reading: Isaiah 7:14

Is it necessary and important to believe in the virgin birth of Christ? Any truth taught in the Bible is necessary to believe. Some deny it but not because the Bible does not teach it, for it does. They deny it because they believe the Scriptures are not factual.

Christ's birth was a natural birth, for He was born like all babies are born; but it was supernatural because Mary was a virgin, never having known any man. The virgin birth rests on the fact of a supernatural conception. With today's technology, perhaps a virgin birth is possible but not a conception without a human father somewhere in the picture. What is equally important with what happened, is why it happened. The conception and virgin birth are hardly mentioned in the Bible, but the reason for them is given much more space. One of the main reasons is its bearing on the deity of Christ.

Isaiah 7:14 prophecies that "a virgin shall conceive." The conception and virgin birth are inseparable in this verse. Those who think the Hebrew word for virgin means "young woman" without necessarily meaning a virgin should check Matthew 1:23 where Isaiah's prophecy is quoted, and the Greek word clearly means virgin. There is no mistake in the King James Bible's translation, nor was there a mistake in the angelic message to Joseph. God inspired Matthew to state the facts that the conception and virgin birth of Christ were subjects of prophecy and were fulfilled when Jesus was born.

If we can't believe the Biblical record on this matter concerning Christ, how can we believe anything else it says about Him? In fact, how can we believe anything at all in the Bible? The integrity of the Scriptures are at stake here. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. We need not be surprised by His sinlessness when we know and believe these two facts.
