1 The Virgin Birth of Jesus 2 While the Pharisees were gathered together Jesus asked them Saying What think ye of Christ whose son is he They say unto him The Son of David. Matthew 2242 3 Some modern religions deny that He is the Son of God Many modern religious leaders deny His Deity Many ask Does it really matter whose Son He is Indeed it matters a great deal 4 If the virgin birth of Christ is not true The Bible is not true His doctrine is not true We have no hope 5 The Essentiality Of It 6 The integrity of the Bible is at stake 7 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between thy seed and her seed it shall bruise thy head and thou shalt bruise his heel. Genesis 315 8 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a son and shall call his name Immanuel. Isaiah 714 9 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph before they came together she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband being a just man and not willing to make her a publick example was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things behold the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream saying 10 Joseph thou son of David fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son and thou shalt call his name JESUS for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet saying Behold a virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son and they shall call his 11 name Emmanuel which being interpreted is God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him and took unto him his wife And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son and he called his name JESUS. Matthew 118-25 If these matters untrue what of the rest that the Bible states 12 The integrity of the Bible is at stake The Deity of Christ is at stake 13 For unto us a child is born unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor The mighty God The everlasting Father The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end upon the throne of David and upon his kingdom to order it and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 96 7 14 And he said unto them How is it that ye sought me wist ye not that I must be about my Fathers business Luke 249 15 Jesus said unto them Verily verily I say unto you Before Abraham was I am. John 858 16 I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them Many good works have I shewed you from my Father for which of those works do ye stone me The Jews answered him saying For a good work we stone thee not but for blasphemy and because that thou being a man makest thyself God. John 1030-33 Some say he was a good man Others say he was a prophet but not the son of God If these matters untrue neither a Prophet nor good 17 The integrity of the Bible is at stake The Deity of Christ is at stake The certainty of salvation is at stake 18 But while he thought on these things behold the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream saying Joseph thou son of David fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son and thou shalt call his name JESUS for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 120 21 19 In this was manifested the love of God toward us because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world that we might live through him. I John 49 If he was not born of a virgin not the son of god thus did not bring salvation 20 The Evidence For It 21 The New Testament writers support it 22 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee named Nazareth To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph of the house of David and the virgins name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her and said Hail thou that art highly favoured the Lord is with thee blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him she was troubled at his saying and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her Fear not Mary for 23 thou hast found favour with God. 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. Then said Mary unto the angel How shall this be seeing I know not a man And the angel answered and said unto her The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee and the 24 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 126-35 25 And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory the glory as of the only begotten of the Father) full of grace and truth. John 114 26 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned but he that believeth not is condemned already because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 316-18 27 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh And declared to be the Son of God with power according to the spirit of holiness by the resurrection from the dead Romans 13 4 28 But when the fulness of the time was come God sent forth his Son made of a woman made under the law To redeem them that were under the law that we might receive the adoption of sons. Galatians 44 5 29 The New Testament writers support it The witnesses support it 30 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. Then said Mary unto the angel How shall this be seeing I know not a man Luke 132-34 If False Mary could have stepped forward at the cross and at least attempted to stop the crucifixion 31 Then Joseph her husband being a just man and not willing to make her a publick example was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things behold the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream saying Joseph thou son of David fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son and thou shalt call his name JESUS for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 119-21 Joseph knew it or else he would have followed through with divorcing her 32 And Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda And entered into the house of Zacharias and saluted Elisabeth. And it came to pass that when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary the babe leaped in her womb and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost And she spake out with a loud voice and said Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me For lo as 33 soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears the babe leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed is she that believed for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. And Mary said My soul doth magnify the Lord And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Luke 139-47 Elizabeth knew it to be true 34 The New Testament writers support it The witnesses support it The words of God support it 35 And lo a voice from heaven saying This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. Matthew 317 36 While he yet spake behold a bright cloud overshadowed them and behold a voice out of the cloud which said This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased hear ye him. Matthew 175 To deny the virgin birth is to deny the very words of God thus to deny god himself 37 The Effects Of It 38 Establishes respect for the Scriptures 39 Matthew records 40 generations yet after only 3 generations no descendants of Abraham Lincoln Search the scriptures for in them ye think ye have eternal life and they are they which testify of me. John 539 40 Establishes respect for the Scriptures Reveals the surety of the supernatural 41 And behold there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon and the same man was just and devout waiting for the consolation of Israel and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost that he should not see death before he had seen the Lords Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him after the custom of the law Then took he him up in his arms and blessed God and said Lord now lettest thou thy 42 servant depart in peace according to thy word For mine eyes have seen thy salvation Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people A light to lighten the Gentiles and the glory of thy people Israel. And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him. And Simeon blessed them and said unto Mary his mother Behold this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel and for a sign which shall be spoken against (Yea a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also) 43 that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed. And there was one Anna a prophetess the daughter of Phanuel of the tribe of Aser she was of a great age and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years which departed not from the temple but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem. 44 If god could perform this could do anything he says And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord they returned into Galilee to their own city Nazareth. And the child grew and waxed strong in spirit filled with wisdom and the grace of God was upon him. Luke 225-40 If virgin birth a farce how can we be sure of the resurrection (or anything else) 45 Establishes respect for the Scriptures Reveals the surety of the supernatural Establishes the certainty of a Savior 46 If Thus born was born for the reason so stated For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour which is Christ the Lord. Luke 211 If not so born not the savior he claimed to be and that was claimed for him 47 The Virgin Birth of Jesus is of paramount importance Lays the foundation for His works miracles word resurrection ascension coronation authority Without it the Bible is untrue God does not exist we are without hope 48 (No Transcript)
