Matthew 1:18 - 25 - This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Joseph, her fiancé, was a good man and did not want to disgrace her publicly, so he decided to break the 20 engagement quietly. As he considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. 19
“Joseph, son of David,” the angel said, “do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived 21 by the Holy Spirit. And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.
All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet: 23“Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’ 22
”24When Joseph woke up, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded and took Mary as his wife.
But he did not have sexual relations with her until her son was born. And Joseph named him Jesus. NLT 25

Deuteronomy 22:23-24 “Suppose a man meets a young woman, a virgin who is engaged to be married, and he has sexual intercourse with her.
If this happens within a town, 24 you must take both of them to the gates of that town and stone them to death. The woman is guilty because she did not scream for help.
The man must die because he violated another man’s wife. In this way, you will purge this evil from among you. NLT

Betula – a technical term for virgin but used for young woman.
Alma – is reserved only for a virgin.
There is no evidence to prove that Alma means a young woman who is not a virgin.
Humble & Submissive Response
Luke 1:34-38 - Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.” 35The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.
So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called 36 the Son of God. What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age!
People used to say she was barren, but she’s now in her sixth month. 37For nothing is impossible with God.”
Mary responded, "I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her. NLT 38
Holy Spirit Caused Mary to become pregnant The God/Man 100% God and 100% Human
1 Timothy 2:5 - For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity —the man Christ Jesus.
Had Jesus not been conceived by the Holy Spirit the following would have resulted: Jesus would not have been God. What Jesus said about Himself would have been lies.
His resurrection would have been a hoax. We would have no hope - lost forever in our sin.
Jesus Immanuel Matthew 1:23 – “Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’ ” NLT
The God/Man – God in human form is God with Us.
