Show Notes:

The virgin birth is the third in an eight-part series entitled, “Putting the Fun in…” on the Christian faith’s essentials or fundamentals that all Jesus followers believe. This doctrine is also called the incarnation or virgin conception. The miracle of the virgin conception is an actual historical event. The first chapters of Matthew and Luke’s Gospels describe the miracle. The virgin conception was necessary so Jesus could be born fully God and fully man. And for doubters, there is convincing evidence that it occurred.

0:00 – Welcome and introductions.

2:50 – Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 1:26-38 present the virgin conception and birth narrative.

3:34 – The virgin conception (or birth) is a miracle. God the Father sent God the Holy Spirit to conceive Jesus in the womb of a virgin named Mary.

5:07 – The Holy Spirit supernaturally conceived Jesus so he would not inherit a sinful human nature. Jesus is one divine person with divine nature and perfect human nature (Phil. 2:6–7).

8:26 – Multiple pieces of evidence prove that the virgin conception occurred.
1. Joseph’s reaction to divorce Mary after hearing the news.
2. The accusation that Jesus was illegitimate or “born of sexual immorality” (John 8:41)
3. The fulfilled prophecy of Isaiah 7:14 of the virgin conception (Matt. 1:22-23).
4. Matthew and Luke had access to Mary (Luke 1:46-55) and his half-brothers James and Jude (Matt.13:55).
5. “Why Make It Up?” No devout Jews would not make up such an irreverent story of God conceiving a child if it wasn’t’ true.

15:50 – The virgin conception is the start of the gospel that I need to be sharing with others!

16:43 – Prophecies made 500 years before Jesus’ birth prove God keeps his promises.

17:25 – Thank you and wrap up
