Andy Stanley: “I stand firmly within the orthodox Christian tradition regarding the incarnation of Jesus — including the birth narratives as presented in Matthew and Luke.”

Matthew: “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.”

Luke: “To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.”

Andy Stanley: “A lot of people just don’t believe [the virgin birth]. And I understand that. Maybe the thought is, ‘Hey, maybe they had to come up with some myth about Jesus to give him street cred, you know, later on.’ Maybe that’s where that came from.”
