The Necessity of the Virgin Birth

Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

 
Matthew 1:18-25 “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, 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 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.”

 
Why is the virgin birth of Jesus Christ so important?

 
1. Jesus had to be born of a virgin because if He had had a human father instead of God as His Father, He could not be God. No man can become God, and Jesus never “became” God. He always was God. God is three in one. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

 
1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” Jesus is also called the Word in the verses below.

 
Therefore, not only is Jesus the only begotten Son of God, He also is God.

 
John 1:1-3 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.”

 
John 1:14 “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.”

 
2. If Jesus’ father had been a human instead of God, He would have been a sinner. The sin nature is passed down from father to child. Although Jesus had a human mother, who was a sinner and had to be saved just like us, His Father is God and God is perfect. This is why Jesus had to be born of a virgin (Luke 1:26-35). If Jesus had been a sinner He would have been disqualified from being the perfect sacrifice that God required for us to be saved from our sins.

 
1 Peter 1:19 “But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:”

Hebrews 9:24-28 “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

Therefore, it was necessary for Jesus to be born of a virgin in order for Him to be able to save us from our sins.
