During the Christmas season, we hear umpteen number of verses that talk about the birth of Jesus and the most familiar accounts in the Scriptures is what is often heard of.
Some of these include
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
As I wondered as to whether there other verses in the Bible, that we are not so intimately familiar with, which also signify the birth of the Lord Jesus Chirst, the following few verses came to mind.
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed [Jesus]; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
This is referred to be the first messianic prophecy recorded in the Bible.
Song of Solomon 3:6
6 Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense [two of the gifts presented to Jesus at his birth], with all powders of the merchant?
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
If you are familiar with other verses that signify the birth of Christ Jesus, please share.
