๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ‘‘ The Virgin Conception of Christ

โ€œTherefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuelโ€ (Isaiah 7:14).

While Christendom speaks of the โ€œvirgin birth of Christ,โ€ according to todayโ€™s Scripture, a more accurate term would be the โ€œvirgin conception of Christ.โ€ There was nothing unusual about Christโ€™s birth; it was His conception that was unique because there was no human father!

Interestingly, todayโ€™s Scripture has been the point of controversy for over a century (to Satanโ€™s delight!). Some modern Bibles (RSV, NRSV, et al.) translate the Hebrew word here translated โ€œvirginโ€ as the vague โ€œyoung woman,โ€ thereby leaving room for the heretical idea that Joseph was Jesusโ€™ biological father (and denying Christโ€™s deity)! If someone ever tells you almah (the Hebrew word translated โ€œvirginโ€) can mean โ€œyoung womanโ€ or โ€œvirgin,โ€ they are right, but point out that the key to choosing the right translation is not up to a translator, but rather the Holy Ghost!

The author of Matthewโ€™s Gospel, filled with the Holy Ghost, knew which translationโ€”โ€œyoung womanโ€ or โ€œvirginโ€โ€”was what God had intended in Isaiah 7:14. If we want to know what God meant in Isaiah 7:14, why not ask God?

โ€œNow all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, โ€œBehold a virgin shall be with childโ€ฆโ€ (Matthew 1:22,23a). The Greek word translated โ€œvirgin,โ€ parthenos, can only mean โ€œvirgin,โ€ not โ€œyoung woman.โ€ Isaiah was prophesying a virgin, indicated by the words โ€œfirstborn sonโ€ (Matthew 1:25; Luke 2:7) and โ€œJoseph knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn sonโ€ (Matthew 1:25). Isaiah 7:14 meant โ€œvirgin,โ€ as indicated by Luke 1:34, for Mary โ€œknew not a man.โ€ Again, the Bible is clear that Joseph was not Jesusโ€™ biological father.

Matthew 1:23 indisputably proves that almah in Isaiah 7:14 did not simply mean a โ€œyoung woman,โ€ who may or may not be sexually pure, but โ€œa virgin,โ€ a woman who never had any sexual intercourse. The Holy Ghost, not Joseph, was the Father of Jesusโ€™ body (Matthew 1:18-20). source
