The Virgin Birth: what did Mary provide?

1 comment:

  1. Interesting article. Possibly true. But if Mary is truly “just” a surrogate, then what really is her relationship to Jesus? My understanding from the “conflicting”, but necessary genealogies found in Matthew and Luke is that one traces Jesus lineage to David through Joseph and the other through Mary. Jesus had to have a lineage through Joseph to establish his rightful, legal claim to David’s throne. But He also had to have a lineage through Mary because of God’s promise to Jeconiah that none of his descendants would rule on the throne of David.
