Was Jesus Really Born Of A Virgin?


The Hebrew word for virgin, is "almah." meaning a young woman of marriageable age, maiden or newly married." When Hebrew scholars, in 200 BC, translated the Hebrew Bible into the Greek Bible, called the Septuagint. They translated the Hebrew word "almah" using the Greek word "parthenos meaning virgin. This incorrect meaning was eventually translated into Latin and English.

    i agree with " Mary was pregnant out of wedlock "

    I think that the virgin birth was a cover story. You can't have the "son of God" or contradictorily, "God in the flesh" born out of wedlock
