5. The Virgin Birth
Perhaps greater than the supernatural phenomena surrounding the birth of Jesus (the way the Magi were led, the chorus of angels praising, etc.) was the miracle of how Jesus was conceived. We often hear the phrase “the virgin birth.” While a virgin did give birth to the Messiah, the real miracle was in the conception.
I am in full agreement with the ancient Christians that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin (Matt. 1:18-22; Luke 1:34). Thus it would be more informative to call it “the virgin conception.”
These lies are told every day all around our country, and people are believing them.
