Hi-lite: Matthew 1:23
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and
they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being
interpreted is, God
God with us.
Why was Jesus birth "on this wise"? To FULFILL the prophecies concerning Him... AS A SIGN to document that He was indeed Emmanuel, God with us! Here is the verse quoted from Isa. 7:14 which was fulfilled:
Here is the original prophecy: Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
The very manner of His birth was a fulfillment of prophecy and it was fulfilled in the "virgin" whose name was Mary.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.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
