The world has experienced unusual births many times. For example, the Fisher quintuplets were born in South Dakota in 1963. The Stanek sextuplets were born in Colorado in 1973. The Chuckwu octuplets were born in Texas in 1998. And the Gosselin sextuplets were born in Pennsylvania in 2004, born into a family that already had a set of twin girls who were 4 years old at the time. From 6 newborns then to 8 teenagers today living in the same house. Wow!
But the only truly unique birth is still the birth of Jesus the Messiah. There has not been, nor will there ever be another birth like his.
In Part 3, we’re going to look at another reason why Jesus’ virgin birth is so important: because it’s necessary for our redemption. Without Jesus’ virgin birth there is no possibility for salvation. What do I mean? Let’s see.
