Luke wrote his Gospel so that his readers would be certain about the events he described—and the historical fact of the virgin birth is no exception. In this sermon from Luke 2:6-7, Alistair Begg explains that the miraculous conception of the Lord Jesus is fundamental to the Christian faith. It is appropriate that God would enter His world in a supernatural way, just as it is essential that the Redeemer would be born of a woman yet perfect in holiness.
1In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2This was the first registration when1 Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3And all went to be registered, each to his own town. 4And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5to be registered with Mary, his betrothed,2 who was with child.
