God with us

After Matthew made clear that Mary would still be a virgin when she gave birth to Jesus, Matthew then said,

“So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: ‘Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,’ which is translated, ‘God with us’” (Matthew 1:22-23).

Over seven hundred years earlier, Isaiah had foretold these amazing things, but then again, what is so amazing about God entering the world through a virgin birth, for if He can create all things with His simple spoken command, then this was child’s play.
