The Godhead – Jesus Christ

 

 

Jesus Christ was not born of a virgin

 

 

 

The Way International teaches that Jesus was not born of a virgin, for Mary lost her virginity before she gave birth to Jesus. Here are the words of Paul Wierwille that deny the virgin birth, "If it is said a virgin shall bring forth a son your Bible would fall to pieces. It says plainly that Mary was a virgin only at the time of conception, not at Jesus' birth; the theory of virgin birth has been a theological assumption and erroneous teaching. The Bible said in verse 20 that God told Joseph, 'Take unto thee thy wife' when Joseph took her unto himself he lived with her as a husband lives with a wife. She was a virgin when she conceived by God, but when Joseph took her unto himself she was no longer a virgin. The divine conception made Mary no longer a virgin’ (The Way Magazine, Dec. 1970, page 6).

 

Confutation

 

The Scripture teaches that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was virgin not only when she conceived Jesus in her womb by the Holy Spirit but also when she gave birth to Jesus Christ, for it is written: “Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name JESUS” (Matthew 1:24-25 – NKJV). As you can see, Joseph had no union with his wife Mary till she gave birth to Jesus, thus Mary was virgin when she gave birth to Jesus. This happened so that it might be fulfilled what the prophet Isaiah had said, “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14 - NKJV).
