Well it’s that time of year again whereas pseudo scholars try to impeach the virgin birth hinged on “almah” being the original word used for virgin in Isaiah 7:14.
Those who follow this party line would have to also delete Matthew 1:18 that says “…before they came together she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.”
They would have to impeach the witness of the angel of the Lord to Joseph in Matthew 1:20: “…fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.”
In addition they would have to erase Matthew 1:22-23: “Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet saying ‘Behold a virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son…’”
As well as the testimony of Joseph himself in Matthew 1:25: “And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.”
They also make liar out of Mary; Luke 1:24-34 says “Then said Mary unto the angel ‘How shall this be seeing I know not a man?’”
So here we have testimonies of five witnesses that confirm the virgin birth. In addition if the “almah” was pregnant and Joseph said that the baby was not his in Matthew 1:25 she would have been stoned to death according to the Law (Deuteronomy 22:23-24).
