jesus was born. whether he was birthed in a cave or a local community house with other jews celebrating the party of the dwelling place (feast of tabernacles) really doesn’t matter. it doesn’t matter whether the first-century view of the word virgin meant that Mary might not have been a “virgin” in the modern sense. jesus was born, this is the point. God became a man in the form of His own son, let that wrap around your head a bit. Mary carried God into the world. Let these word seep deep into your psyche and celebrate that jesus was born, period.
