If Jesus Was Born of A Virgin

By Al Behel

    Larry King,  CNN talk show host, was asked who he would most like to interview from history.  He replied, “Jesus Christ.” He was then asked what he would like to ask Jesus. King said, “I would like to ask Him if He was indeed virgin-born. The answer to that question would define history for me.”
    Well ... He was and history is defined by Jesus. He is the center of history ... all time dates from His birth. He defines the meaning of our past, present, and future. Remove Jesus from history and much of our art, literature, and music would disappear. Our language would lose much of its beauty, our world would become a colder and more dangerous place, and all of our churches would cease to exist. 
    The evidence of Jesus’ birth is all around us. Studies show that 80% of Americans believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, even those who do not attend church or claim to be religious. The fact of His birth doesn’t hinge on how many people believe or disbelieve. If Jesus was born of a virgin then all His claims about Himself are true ... and He is King of Kings, Lord of Lords, and holds claim to the hearts of men. If He was born of a virgin, then He is the Messiah and the Savior of the world. And all Old Testament prophecy regarding Him has been fulfilled.
    What difference does it really make whether He was born of a virgin? All the difference in the world. If He was not born of a virgin He is not who He claims to be, the Bible is false, and we are to be pitied. But, He was virgin born ... He is the Son of God...and we have a Savior!
