SUBJECT: VIRGIN BIRTH

INTRODUCTION

A. THE STORY OF CHRISTMAS FOCUSES ON
ONE OF THE GREATEST MIRACLES EVER
PERFORMED.

1. THE MIRACLE IS THE VIRGIN BIRTH.

2. OF ALL THE MIRACLES IN THE
BIBLE THIS IS THE ONE THAT IS
MOST QUESTIONED.

B. DOES THE VIRGIN BIRTH REALLY MAKE A
DIFFERENCE.

1. MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE JESUS
LIVED.

2. THE PROBLEM PEOPLE HAVE IS

3. THE PROBLEM BEGINS WITH THE
VIRGIN BIRTH.

4. HE WAS TO THE PEOPLE OF HIS DAY
