    8: For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin. (Within sixty-five years E'phraim will be broken to pieces so that it will no longer be a people.) 9: And the head of E'phraim is Sama'ria, and the head of Sama'ria is the son of Remali'ah. If you will not believe, surely you shall not be established.'" 10: Again the LORD spoke to Ahaz,
    11: "Ask a sign of the LORD your God; let it be deep as Sheol or high as heaven." 12: But Ahaz said, "I will not ask, and I will not put the LORD to the test." 13: And he said, "Hear then, O house of David! Is it too little for you to weary men, that you weary my God also? 14: Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a young woman shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Imman'u-el. 15: He shall eat curds and honey when he knows how to refuse the evil and choose the good. 16: For before the child knows how to refuse the evil and choose the good, the land before whose two kings you are in dread will be deserted."

    We see here in Isaiah 7, that king Achaz, the king of Judah, is afraid of 2 neighboring kings.
    It is important to know that after the death of king Solomo the kingdom of Israel split up into two parts; into the kingdom of Judah, and the kingdom of Israel.
    The kingdom om Judah was made up of the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and a part of the Levites. The kingdom of Israel was made up of the other ten tribes.
    Achaz was king over Judah, and in this prophecy the king of Israel is Pekah, the son of Remaliah.
    And Pekah had made a covenant with the king of Syria, called Resin, to attack together the kingdom of Judah.
    This news caused king Achaz considerable stress, because he had a dark suspicion that things could very well turn out not so very rosy for him.
    Therefore God sent Isaiah to Achaz, in order to tell him that things would work out just fine for him. God tells Achaz that he will give him a sign. Here is the sign: "14: Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a young woman shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Imman'u-el. 15: He shall eat curds and honey when he knows how to refuse the evil and choose the good. 16: For before the child knows how to refuse the evil and choose the good, the land before whose two kings you are in dread will be deserted."

    God says that before the child of the young woman who is pregnant will grow up, the land of the two kings, Resin of Syria, and Pekah of Israel, will be deserted, that is devoid of people. Those two nations will be led into exile.
    So this is a sign for king Achaz, who lived about 700 years before JC.

    And the Bible tells us that this prophecy came true: "27: In the fifty-second year of Azari'ah king of Judah Pekah the son of Remali'ah began to reign over Israel in Sama'ria, and reigned twenty years. 28: And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not depart from the sins of Jerobo'am the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin. 29: In the days of Pekah king of Israel Tig'lath-pile'ser king of Assyria came and captured I'jon, A'bel-beth-ma'acah, Jan-o'ah, Kedesh, Hazor, Gilead, and Galilee, all the land of Naph'tali; and he carried the people captive to Assyria. 30: Then Hoshe'a the son of Elah made a conspiracy against Pekah the son of Remali'ah, and struck him down, and slew him, and reigned in his stead, in the twentieth year of Jotham the son of Uzzi'ah."
    II Kings 15.

    We see here that the population of Israel indeed went into exile, and that the land of king Pekah was deserted.

    And here is what happened to Resin, the king of Syria:
    "6: At that time the king of Edom recovered Elath for Edom, and drove the men of Judah from Elath; and the E'domites came to Elath, where they dwell to this day. 7: So Ahaz sent messengers to Tig'lath-pile'ser king of Assyria, saying, "I am your servant and your son. Come up, and rescue me from the hand of the king of Syria and from the hand of the king of Israel, who are attacking me." 8: Ahaz also took the silver and gold that was found in the house of the LORD and in the treasures of the king's house, and sent a present to the king of Assyria. 9: And the king of Assyria hearkened to him; the king of Assyria marched up against Damascus, and took it, carrying its people captive to Kir, and he killed Rezin."
    II Kings 16.

    So here we see that also the inhabitants of the land of King Resin went into exile, and also his land was deserted, in the days of Achaz.

    So God gave a sign to Achaz.

    In the days of Achaz.

    About 700 years before JC.

    So this prophecy has no bearing what so ever on the messiah, and NOWHERE in this prophecy is spoken about a virgin.

    These are only misconceptions of the NT.

    However, the NT brings this prophecy to Achaz as a messianic prophecy, see Matthew 1 "21: she will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." 22: All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: 23: "Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel".

    So what the NT does here, is take a text which does not speak about the messiah, rip it out of context, mistranslates it, (is says "young woman", and not "virgin") and then present it to us as a messianic prophecy.

    So one of the foundations of the Christian religion, the virgin birth, is based upon a mistranslated text which is ripped out of context and does NOT speak about the messiah.


    Eliyahu light unto the nations


    "Hear Israel, Y-H-W-H is our God, Y-H-W-H is ONE!" Deut 6:4

    "All the peoples walk each in the name of his god, but as for us; we will walk in the name of Y-H-W-H our God forever and ever!" Micah 4:5

    This message is sent to you from Mount Zion, Jerusalem, Israel.

    "From Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of God from Jerusalem." Isaiah 2:3, Micah 4:2
    I really do not understand what you are getting at?? Also the Word said that Mary she shall be called Blessed in all the world,so what is it you are saying? Thank You! Blessings and Peace!

    First, we should agree that the history you just explained so well is suspect of a dual meaning since it is found in the Bible, the words we read coming to us from God and not some college of the Humanities.
    We are supposed to ponder the meaning of these things we read and there relationship to the guidance and edification implied.

    So, it is not too far fetched that the prophets, even in the New Testament, should find application for these ideas in their own reflection upon events that had come to pass.

    Secondly, the Hebrew word, Immanuel, means "God is with us".
    In Matthew, the prophecy then can be understood to say, "his name SHALL be called 'God has been with us.'"That NT prophecy did come true, also.

    In 325AD, at Nicea, the Trinity asserted a "new name for God", (Rev 3:12).
    Christ has reigned ever since as God.

    Third, the "virgin" birth can be better understood today as an Act-of-God.
    Jesus is a new species of mankind, different from men of the past.
    He is a new creature in God's kingdom.
    He is what has been called a Homoiousian he is a Homoiousian sapiens.
    Jesus is an evolutionary product, which is the first born of whom we shall all mimic as son-of-god in the future to come.

    The genetic mutations that advance these new species of life forms occur inside the womb.
    They are not fathered by men of the previous stock, but truly, virgin births of new species unlike their fathers, and the product of an Act of God, himself.

    "From Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of Y-H-W-H from Jerusalem." Isaiah 2:3, Micah 4:2
    These verse confounded the Jews in the past and even today they are confused simply because they failed to see the Logic in what Jesus was saying and the rational of Trinity.

    This stems from the faailure to define G-d before Jesus did so for us in 32AD.
    The jews to this day will admit that for them, the definition of G-d is ineffable.
    It is too complex a concept for their predeccessors to have stated in words.
    The Jews still claim find themselves incapable of expressing in words their understanding of G-d.

    Jesus defined the Father of all creation for us when he said he was the son of this entity, and he personified as the Christ the concept of Truth as the light into the world which saves man from the second death, the extinction of his whole species.
    It is Truth that can abd will lead mankind to adapt to the ways of this God that reigns over the Realities within which we are trapped.

    What Jesus was telling the Jews in 32Ad wa that Truth is the mental spirit of mind that images Reality.
    What Jesus was telling them was that Truth is the spirit lkike thoughts which mediate between man and the god of this Reality wwhich represents the creator in and by his creation.

    What Jesus was saying takes the form of a syllogism of logical definitions:


    LOGICAL SYLLOGISM:

    A) Christ is Truth, (personified).
    B) Truth must correspond congruently to Reality.
    C) Reality is congruent to Truth as Christ is congruent to God.



    Trinity becomes clear since for man, Truth is his only access to the conception of the external RealityMan can not tell one from the other.

    Lightbulb Virgin territory......

    ~*~*~

    Hi all, I've addressed this issue again in Traditios thread 'Apparent Scriptural Proof against the Virgin Birth Here.

    It remains only the assumption of traditional/orthodox Christianity that Jesus somehow had to be born of a virgin to affect any benefit to mankind, even though this was never an original Jewish teaching or expetectation of their Messiah.

    You can never prove that!!! - You may find one or two verses that sound like a contradiction but (( IT AIN'T ))!!! - The Whole / God / Truth / Jesus / Christ says "Virgin Birth"!!! -- The unlearned may say (( Anything ))!! ---- Listen to them!!!

    No, I see you are Jewish and I am a Christian. Now how long has the difference been known? What are you saying that has not been said? Nothing.

    Why care to debate another faith? Why is she here, instead of worshiping at temple? I do not debate with those of other faiths, at least those who wish to push their faith on me, as that is an insecurity.

    Please, summarize, a few lines, not the full text, when it is that long, as it wastes web space.

    Yes, so why are you wasting it? have you not been here long enough to know? Does Knight have to keep asking a simple request? So do not quote long full posts, when they are meaningless to you, unless you take them to task piece, by piece.

    OK!! - I haven't seen that request, but will adhere to it as much as is possible.

    Covered Here

    Do your homework.

    Besides the grammatical issues, translation-transfers and proper context of said passage....can you prove Jesus was born of a virgin beyond only a few verses in 2 gospels (only one of those specifically referring to Is. 7:14), and your religious belief that every word in the NT is somehow the word of God? - such only complicate matters.

    The unlearned may say (( Anything ))!! ---- Listen to them!!!
    That appears to be the missing link here - "learning".

    Again, look at all the facts and then understand that you have to ignore certain of those and cling to a religious belief (traditionally imposed or self-preferred) to cling to such. There may not be harm in the belief, however thats 'explained', but its best to be thoroughly informed on the subject from all possible points of view, instead of swallowing it hook, line and sinker. And this intends no disrespect to Jesus, it only knocks over a few sacred cows and may upset the applecart for some. Virgin births of divine god-men are not unique to Christianity, but thats another chapter

    Isaiah 7:14 KJV (((((( Therefore )))))) the (( Lord himself shall give you a sign )); (( Behold, a virgin shall conceive )), ( and bear a son ), and shall call his name Immanuel--&-- Matthew 1:23 KJV

    How many (( times )) does God have to say something that is (( Truth ))?? Find any Word anywhere in the scriptures that contradicts with those Words, and you will have found the ( first contradiction ) that cannot be overcome!!! Prove it!! --- How can you guys teach such contradictions, and call it the Truth???


    Come on freelight, stay with me this time!!

    I already gave you access to at least 2 articles(pdfs) by Uri Yoseph thoroughly covering the translation issues of the particular passage, so one could weigh the evidences for translating the word in question as 'virgin'. If you'd like to address any particular points, you're welcome to engage. You're apparently unaware of the problems involved, having not read the facts (the words being used, Septuagint factors, reliance on available texts, translation-issues from one language to another, etc.) Ignorance is a choice in this matter, but suit yourself.

    I think he is asking if you believe the correlation being drawn between the two verses is legitimate.
