2Luke 1:26–27 (ESV)26 In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin’s name was Mary.
3Luke 1:28–29 (ESV)28 And he came to her and said, “Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” 29 But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be.
4Luke 1:30–31 (ESV)30 And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.
5Luke 1:32–33 (ESV)32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”
6Luke 1:34–35 (ESV)34 And Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?” 35 And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God.
7Luke 1:36–37 (ESV)36 And behold, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son, and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. 37 For nothing will be impossible with God.”
8Luke 1:38 (ESV)38 And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
11John 1:1 (ESV)1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
12Jesus Christ was present at creation. He is eternal Jesus Christ was present at creation. He is eternal. This is a foundational point.
13Gloria Patri Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall beworld without end. Amen.
14The Virgin Birth was the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy.
15Genesis 3:14–15 (KJV)14 And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15 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.
16Isaiah 7:14 (ESV)14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
17The New Testament bears witness to the Virgin Birth.
18Luke 1:34 (ESV)34 And Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?”
19Matthew 1:20 (ESV)20 But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
20The Virgin Birth is a critical piece of God's plan for salvation.
21The Apostles Creed I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,born of the Virgin Mary,
22Nicene CreedAnd in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.
25Luke 1:34–35 (ESV)34 And Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?” 35 And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God.
