This teaching is a Light of the Southwest program (#030512) featuring guest Ben Burton teaching on the subject of the Virgin Birth.
The Virgin Birth is an essential doctrine regarding the person and work of Messiah, yet this core belief is being questioned within the community of faith and even denied by prominent leaders. With the end of this Age coming ever closer, room for doubt on this fundamental issue will most certainly affect our faith and ability to overcome.
What are the origins of this foundational principle? Is it just a meaningless concept, or is it more crucial than we ever imagined? Are we taking for granted, or simply overlooking, the most grand and intricate of all the plans of Our Creator?
Favorite Light of the Southwest guest, Ben Burton, tackled this doctrine with superb agility -- using as his source the Tanakh (Old Testament) and historical writings of the Jewish sages as they commented on the Biblical text. In order to recognize the Messiah, the Jewish people HAD to know every qualifying detail in order to recognize The Messiah... He was, after all, promised to them. It's here that we begin to uncover how phenomenal the Messiah really is.
PLEASE NOTE: This teaching is part of the Pivotal Doctrines series by Ben Burton, which includes Virgin Birth, Deity, and Atonement. The Pivotal Doctrines series is available for purchase as a packaged set which includes all five Light of the Southwest programs (approx 10 hours).
