The veil of Jewish blindness articulated on FB (a rebuttal): “The whole idea of virgin birth serves no purpose, except to attract pagans to Christianity.”
A Christian rebuttal,
The virgin birth of Messiah, as first prophesied in Genesis 3:15 immediately subsequent to the fall of man, is essential as the ramifications for sin and the sin-nature flow genomically from the seed of Adam, the seed of the man to all of Adam’s descendants. Not only does Adam incur more culpability for sin due to federal headship over the family structure but Adam had received the edict to NOT compromise with evil directly from Elohim whereas Eve received said edict by hearsay from her husband, Adam; therefore, Adam’s seed transfers the sin-nature and in Adam “all die” (1 Corinthians 15:22; Romans 5:12).
Messiah entered the Realm of Time through the seed of a virgin woman (Galatians 4:4; Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23) through the power of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:35) and thereby circumvented the sin-nature that would have been passed through Joseph’s seed via Adam. This virgin birth permitted the realization of the hypostatic union of God and man (Philippians 2:8; John 1); therefore, Messiah Jesus was successful in completing His primary mission on Earth which was to “destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b) and that mission was accomplished 4000-years subsequent to the Genesis prophecy (Genesis 3:15; 3:21) at the Crucifixion where Messiah defeated death, Hell, the grave, for everyone who will believe in Him as God and Mediator for sin (John 3:16).
Without the virgin birth of Messiah, Jesus would not have successfully fulfilled the Law of Moses and the Commandments etched in stone at Sinai (Matthew 5:17), a task no man could achieve as all of mankind is under the condemnation of sin (Romans 3:23). Without the sinless, perfect, blood of Messiah to make atonement for sin (Hebrews 4; 2 Corinthians 5:21), mankind would have no hope as all of mankind would be destined to death in sin and death in Hell because “nothing impure” is permitted to enter the Kingdom of God (Revelation 21:27).
