The Virgin Birth of Jesus

John Stange

Luke 1:26-38

I. You shall call His name Jesus (v. 26-33)

Mark 10:15 – “Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child
shall not enter it.”

II. How will this be? (v. 34)

Romans 5:12 – Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through
sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned

Romans 5:17 – For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man,
much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness
reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 7:14 – Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall
conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

III. I accept whatever God asks of me (v. 35-38)

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 – And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.
4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them
from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
