Why the Virgin Birth is Essential

100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #53 | with Daniel Whyte III

SCRIPTURE — 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.”

Larry King was once asked who he would most want to interview if he could choose any person from all of history. He said that person would be Jesus Christ. The questioner said, ‘If you could interview Jesus Christ, what would you like to ask Him?’ Larry King replied, “I would like to ask Him if He was indeed virgin-born. The answer to that question would define history for me.”

Followers of Jesus Christ believe that Jesus Christ was in fact virgin-born. This is one of the foundation stones of the Christian faith. A great deal rests on the fact of Jesus being born of the virgin Mary without the aid of a human father. Without this essential part of God’s redemption process, our salvation would rest on a very shaky foundation.

What is it about the virgin birth that makes it so essential? Why is it so crucial to the redemptive plan of God? Today, allow me to share with you three reasons why we cannot do without the virgin birth if we are to have salvation from sin and eternal life with God in heaven.

1. The virgin birth is essential because without it, Jesus would not have been sinless.

2. The virgin birth is essential because without it, prophecy would not have been fulfilled.

3. The virgin birth is essential because without it, Jesus could not have been the Son of God.
