Citizen: Thank you for your web address... There are many sites who are disproving the theories of Islam. Wanted to share some passages of the bible that specifically state the birth of Christ. This is how the birth of Jesus came about:
EVIDENCE FROM THE BIBLE There are 100 prophecies that have come true out of the Bible, not the Koran.
Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. (Matthew. 1:18.
Dialogue between the angel and Mary in Luke 1:30-37 make it clear that: Mary was a virgin, and Jesus birth was a special act of the Holy Spirit.
ONLY JESUS QUALIFIES TO BE "THE CHRIST."
The title "Christ" (Greek, christos means "anointed one. The Christ was the anointed king who would fulfill God's promises to David of an eternal kingdom of justice and peace through one of his descendants, Jesus, a descendant of David, claimed to be that annointed one (Luke4:16-21).
Although various individuals in the Old Testament (such as King David) were annointed to their offices, there could only be one divinely annointed King of God's people. Similarly, all believers are said to have an "annointing from God (1 John 2:20-27), but the New Testament recognizes only Jesus as "The Christ."
More Evidence Jesus said, "For many will come in my name, claiming, "I am the Christ, and will deceive many." Matthew 24:5. There are 100 prophecies fullfilled to the letter.n
Here are just a few
All nations shall be blessed through Abraham. Genesis 18:17
Be of the tribe of Judah Genesis 49:8-10
Born in the town of Bethlehem of Judea- Micah 5:2-5
Be born a king of the line of David- Isaiah 9:7
A child to be born- Isaiah-9:6
Be born of a virgin- Isaiah 9:6
Be called out of Egypt- Hosea 11:1 Upon his coming the deaf hear, the blind see Isaiah 29:18
Be hated without reason- Psalm 35:19 69:4 Come to do the will of God psalm 40:7-8
Death and Resurrection Matthew 27:45 and Matthew 28.
All or most events have history and archeology that confirm they were foretold correctly, only God could have foretold these events exactly as they have happened.
