The Significance and Importance of the Virgin Birth of Jesus

With all the attacks on the New Testament over the last few years, I thought I would post the material again. However, before we "go there", many of the mythologies that claim to have "savior/virgin birth stories" are either forgeries, or fabrications that have been well after, even centuries of the prophecies and one hundred to two hundred years following the actual historical events. In either case, none of the mythology stories have a single shred of salvific value, since they were based on "myth."

"Why Jesus is Unique" Conclusion and Series Links

Why is it that when Christmas and Resurrection Sunday come around the tabloids "go monkeys" on Jesus' birth or resurrection (respectively).  Depending on the holiday, the respective journals put their spin on the virgin birth or the empty tomb, trying to find ways to explain it away or water it down.

Many of us may already be seeing the magazines at the check out counter where the cover title of the journal has as feature article a catchy title referring to Jesus' significance to the Christmas holiday.  To give you an illustration of this, National Geographic has come out with the latest edition, "50 of the Most Influential Figures in the Bible" as their response to gaining a readership during this Christmas season.

Series Part V: The Uniqueness of Jesus in Contrast to Muhammad

by Rob Lundberg

With the rise of Islam in many parts of the world, and with many Muslims coming to the United States, it is important to note that there are some major differences between Muhammad, the founder of the world religion known as Islam, and Jesus of Nazareth.  In this final posting of this series, I want to be fair to my Muslim readers, but at the same time, I want to let you and them know that I have an unwavering belief in Jesus as the Son of God, which is something that my Muslim readers  refuse to see.

In this posting, I will share my understanding of who the Prophet Muhammad, what he did to forward the Muslim faith and then share how Jesus of Nazareth is superior to Muhammad. If you are thinking that I am going to ridicule Muhammad

Series Part IV: The Uniqueness of Jesus in Contrast to the Gurus of Hinduism

As we move through this series on why Jesus is superior to all of the religious figures and religious leaders we find that when we encounter Jesus, we find He addresses the deepest recesses of the heart, the soul and the mind.  That being said, we come now to addressing this question with reference to the gurus of the Hindu religion. The Hindu religion had its earliest beginnings sometime about 2000 B.C.  The tribes living in the Indus Valley of northern India had a polytheistic religion that was primarily rooted in the occult.

Whether we realize it or not, people today from the West are taking a look at, and embracing some of the varying forms of Buddhism.
