Isaiah 7:14 and the virgin birth:
Despite the fact that Matthew 1:22-23 uses Isaiah 7:14 to legitimise the
virgin birth - or, rather the virgin conception - Isaiah 7:14 can not be
interpreted to be a prediction of the virgin birth. Matthew 1 :22-23 is a total
reinterpretation of Isaiah 7:14 and cannot be applied as a criterion to the
reading of Isaiah 7:14. These are two unique texts, each having its own
junction and message.
