Question #47: What three things did Christ’s virgin birth confirm?

Though Christ was tempted in all points, He did not sin.
Though Christ was tempted in all points, He did not sin.

Answer: Three of the main things that Christ’s virgin birth confirm are:

1) His sinless human nature (Heb 4:15),

2) His divine origin (Jn 1:1, 14):

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

3) His uniqueness as the theanthropic (God-Man) person (1 Tim 3:16).

“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”
