Re Isaiah 7 v 14

Original playout date: 21 June 2007
Duration: 14:55

This is another video response from the time when such a facility to answer a video with another was possible. I am using Hypercam in what I see is a fairly seamless way to produce a counterargument.

The question that was raised is why there is a scriptural contradiction that Isaiah talks of a young woman giving birth and the quote of it in Matthew as “a Virgin”. I do my best to show why “young woman” is not an acceptable translation of “almah” hence there is no discrepancy or contradiction.

While doing this I demonstrate how believers or unbelievers alike can use in the second part we talks about if there is a contradiction of the names given to Christ; “Emmanuel” and “Jesus”.

Quote of the clip: “He takes the punishment that was coming to us, and in order to be part of that is enough to believe”
