      God’s purpose for Jesus being born from a virgin is to prove that Jesus is the Messiah, a miracle from God. This also confirms prophesy.

      God’s purpose is to show the man born is sinless because he came out of laws of human nature to save the world from sin.

      God’s purpose for Jesus being born in this manner is to prove that He underwent a supernatural conception. By Mary, a virgin, conceiving it points to the fact that the Holy Spirit was present and is part of Jesus. Jesus was conceived free of sin because a man and woman were not involved, but instead the Holy Spirit.

      I found that this PDF about the virgin birth taking place was rather a difficult read. I cannot believe the distortion that takes place among other believers. Jesus Christ sacrificed himself for our sins so we can go on to live a sinless life. But, in reality this is not really true. As humans, we all sin in some manner. Simply put, Jesus was so dedicated to human kind that all he asked for us, is to love one another for who they are, help one another who needs it and just be a very caring person. You can’t have this without faith and that is belief in God. You really can’t exist without faith. It is supposed to part of us; our soul, so to speak. This explanation did not come easy to me as I see what is happening, today. It would be just so simple if we observed these rules. Jesus was born without sin but died for us, as we have sinned. God is the supreme ruler of all. If the virgin birth of Jesus held this concept, among all believers, we would all be better off. Like I said, previously, it is a hard manner for us to grasp these concepts.

      God purpose would be for Jesus to be born of the spirit as well as the flesh and to be born as sinless, not conceived from man and woman being intimate.

      Gods purpose for Jesus being born in this manner is so that Jesus would be the perfect one, without sin so that he could die on the Cross for our sin.

      Fully experiencing and identifying with His creation, at the same time becoming our sinless sacrifice to reconcile humankind to God.

      It was to show that he was not really from this world, that he did not start out with sin. He was separated from it.

      It was necessary for Jesus to be born of virgin for the sake of his sinless nature. He did not have a biological earthly father so he did not inherit a sin nature, rather he was the Son of God. It proved he had a heavenly origin and that he existed eternally. It was also important for salvation. Without a perfect, sinless, sacrifice there could be no salvation. Jesus was that perfect sacrifice because he lived a sinless life from the moment of conception. It also made Christ unique. No one else has ever been born in this manner. From the beginning to the end Jesus’ life was a miracle.

      This was God’s way for Jesus to have two natures–both God and man in one Person.
