4 Powerful Bible Verses About The Birth Of Jesus Every Christian Ought To Know

Bible Verses About The Birth Of Jesus

Christmas is quickly approaching. At this time of year, we celebrate Christ’s birth. The day Christ, God the Son, the Second Person of the Trinity, came down to earth to be wrapped in flesh. It is debatable whether or not this is the real date on which Christ was born, and it is entirely irrelevant. We chose to celebrate on this day, a day set aside to honor our Lord – and that is reason enough to praise Him. Here are five Bible verses about the birth of Jesus every Christian ought to know.

Bible Verses About The Birth Of Jesus

1. Christ Would be Born of a Virgin

Prophecy – “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14).

Fulfillment – Mary received this same prophecy when the angel Gabriel visited her, and we see this fulfilled clearly through Scripture. 

“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God with us’)” (Matthew 1:23).

2. Christ Would be Born in Bethlehem

Prophecy – “The Lord says, ‘Bethlehem, you might not be an important town in the nation of Judah. But out of you will come a ruler over Israel for me. His family line goes back to the early years of your nation.  It goes all the way back to days of long ago’” (Micah 5:2).

Fulfillment – Christ was born in Bethlehem just as the prophecy foretold. 

“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem” (Matthew 2:10).

3. A Star Would Point the Way Towards Christ

Prophecy – “I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near; A star shall come forth from Jacob, and a scepter shall rise from Israel, and shall crush through the forehead of Moab, and tear down all the sons of Sheth” (Numbers 24:17).

Fulfillment – God places the star in the sky to lead the magi to Christ, that they might worship Him.

“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east, and have come to worship Him” (Matthew 2:1-2).

4. There Would be a Presentation of Gifts to Him

Prophecy – “May the kings of Tarshish and of distant shores bring tribute to him. May the kings of Sheba and Seba present him gifts. May all kings bow down to him and all nations serve him” (Psalm 72:10-11).

Fulfillment – The magi who visited Jesus brought him gifts and bowed to worship Him.

“On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh” (Matthew 2:11).
