Isaiah 7:14 and Isaiah 9:6 )

These passages of the prophet speak about Jesus 750 years or so before Jesus was born

– an indication of the inspiration of the scriptures.

The two verses teach about the uniqueness of Jesus:

1: JESUS WAS A UNIQUE CHILD ( Isaiah 9:6 )

“For unto us a child is born”

Unique because of the manner of his birth:

“A virgin shall conceive” ( Isaiah 7:14 )

( Matt 1:23 ) ( Luke 1:27 ) ( Luke 1:34 ) ( Gen 3:15 )

Why a Virgin Birth?

Could not have been our sinless saviour without it.

Sin comes through the Father’s line. ( Rom 5:12 ) ( Rom 5:19 )

What prevented the baby being contaminated with his mother’s sin?

The overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. ( Luke 1:35 )

A Sinless Saviour.
