Question #46: Where is the first indication of virgin birth in the Bible?

The Protoevangelium, Gen 3:15.
The Protoevangelium, Gen 3:15.

Answer: The first indication of virgin birth in the Bible is in the protoevangelium of Gen 3:15 where the evangelical promise will come from her seed, not from man’s seed (cf Lk 1:55).

“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” (Gen 3:15).

[In the Magnificat, Mary exults in her Savior and concludes the miracle done upon her by the Holy Ghost was God’s promise to His people.  “As he spake to our fathers, To Abraham, and to his seed for ever” (Lk 1:55).]
