The Miraculous Conception
The Miraculous Conception is the miracle of how the Son of God was conceived in the virgin maiden’s womb. We are to have a like Mary had!
She entrusted herself to God’s will, and she was used to bring fulfillment of Messiah’s birth.
1. A word about - it’s appropriate to remember this very special person, Mary – the mother of Jesus, because she was a woman of great trust and faith!
Who was Mary? We find Mary’s assessment of herself in 1:46-47 If she had no sin, there would be no need for a ‘Savior’ – she calls God her Savior.
2. So the Angel Gabriel speaks to her… verses 31-35
> She asks how will this be? Since I am a virgin? Lit ‘I know not a man.’ v.35b ‘Overshadow’ = envelope with a haze of brilliancy; fig. to .
This is the fulfillment of Isaiah 7:14 God’s prophetic Word - The sign of God’s deliverance coming to Israel.
3. You are to call Him Yeshua = ‘Yahweh .’
The Incarnation - John 1:1-2, 14
*We must have the kind of faith Mary had, where we say
‘Lord, I am your servant; May your word to me be fulfilled.’
