The Virgin Birth Part 2

And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Luke 1:31-33

Continuing about the Virgin Birth, here we see the Angel Gabriel comes to Mary and gives her the prophecy of Jesus birth. Many things are revealed in this prophecy, first his name Jesus (Yeshua). This is a sacred name and should be treated as so

Second he reveals that Jesus is the Son of God and he will have a Kingdom that will reign forever! Mary knows this is the Messiah, that was prophesied about throughout the Torah for thousands of years.

Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? Luke 1:34

Most English translations put “Virgin” here instead of “I know not a man”. The original Greek word here is “Ginosko”

The interesting thing is this is the same word Jesus uses in Matthew 7:23 when he says “Depart from me I never KNEW (Ginosko) You….meaning he never had a relationship with us. This is the same Mary is saying she never had relations with anyone, basically identifying her Virginity

And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. Luke 1:35

So how was Jesus conceived in Mary? By the Holy Spirit who is also God. Its important to understand , Jesus wasn’t conceived by a man, he is God and was conceived into human form by God also.

For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37

Your mind is probably racing, how can this all be? As the Angel Gabriel reminded Mary and us, Nothing is impossible with God. If God can create the Heavens and the Earth, He can certnanly conceive the Son of God in a Virgin.
