Could you imagine the confusion of Israel when they heard the prophecy concerning the promised Messiah being born from a virgin? I’m sure they wondered how it could come about. But we know with God nothing is impossible. And the virgin birth of Jesus shows that Lord is without sin, pure, and holy. For our great Immanuel, meaning God with us, was not born from any man, but is the begotten Son of God. He joyfully and willingly came to this earth to become the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world.
