πŸŽ„πŸ‘‘ The Virgin Conception of Christ

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

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

Interestingly, today’s Scripture has been the point of controversy for over a century (to Satan’s delight!). Some modern Bibles (RSV, NRSV, et al.) translate the Hebrew word here translated β€œvirgin” as the vague β€œyoung woman,” thereby leaving room for the heretical idea that Joseph was Jesus’ biological father (and denying Christ’s deity)! If someone ever tells you almah (the Hebrew word translated β€œvirgin”) can mean β€œyoung woman” or β€œvirgin,” 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 Matthew’s Gospel, filled with the Holy Ghost, knew which translationβ€”β€œyoung woman” or β€œvirgin”—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?

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

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