Bible is ‘telling the truth’ about Christ’s birth, scholar says
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--The Gospel of John poetically declares, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." "The Word" refers to the Son, who since eternity past has lived in heaven. The Word for a brief 33 years also "tabernacled" among us. John explains, "The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed His glory, the glory as the One and Only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth." During the Christmas season, Christians around the world read the Gospel narrative recounting how Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem where Christ, the Messiah, was born in a humble stable some 2,000 years ago. Christians accept, by faith, the truths recorded in the birth account. Jeremy Howard, editor of Bibles and reference books for the B&H Publishing Group of LifeWay Christian Resources and Ph.D. graduate from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, points to many reasons Christians can be sure the Christmas story is true. CHRIST & THE OLD TESTAMENT The Old Testament contains verses that point directly to Christ's virgin birth, Howard noted. The strongest evidence comes from Isaiah 7-9: The Immanuel prophecy begins in Isaiah 7:14 when the Lord speaks to Ahaz through Isaiah and says, "Therefore, the Lord Himself will give you a sign; The virgin will conceive, have a son, and name him Immanuel."
