Virgin Birth
Bible Study Network

      Here is how the Bible describes the supernatural impregnating of
Mary so that God would come to the earth in the form of a humble man:

      26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a
city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose
name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.  
28 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored
one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”
      29 But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and
considered what manner of greeting this was. 30 Then the angel said to
her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31
And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and
shall call His name JESUS. 32 He will be great, and will be called the
Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His
father David. 33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and
of His kingdom there will be no end.”
      34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not
know a man?”
      35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will
come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you;
therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of
God.

(Luke 1:26-35.)
