One of the essential doctrines of Jesus is in regard to His virgin birth. I'm Ron Moore with the Bible Minute.
The virgin birth was lived out in ridicule and scorn by a young man and woman seen by others as having conceived out of wedlock. It took a visit from an angel to convince Joseph of God's work. Here's Matthew 1:20.
"An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, 'Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.'"
Amazing, isn't it? Jesus was born to a poor teenage girl, under misunderstood circumstances. That means that when God sent His Son he stripped Him of all royal privileges--all the way to the cross. Jesus lived an entire life of sacrifice.
