    Lightbulb VB unnecessary.......

    ~*~*~
    Interestingly, the apostle Paul appears to know nothing of the 'virgin birth ' of Jesus, and had ample opportunity when speaking of his birth to indicate this miraculous fact. Instead he speaks of Jesus being the son of David, according to the flesh, indicating a natural biological birth within David's lineage, which corresponds logically with Jesus being Joseph's son. Since the epistles are regarded as earlier than the canonical gospels, this supports the virgin birth being a later doctrinal interpolation added to Matthew and Luke's gospels. A virgin birth 'belief' or 'doctrine' is wholly unnecessary.

    See: Was the Virgin Birth Doctrine Part of the Original Gospels?
