Was The Messiah born of a virgin birth or did he come through the seed line of a man?

Ok now if you read the scriptures it says that the messiah is the seed of David, which would mean that he came through the seed line of David, so why is there another telling that the messiah was born of a virgin birth?

Where in the scriptures does it say the Messiah was born of a virgin birth?

(I'm not saying he for sure wasn't born of a virgin birth, I'm just not sure/I'm skeptical)

And please don't tell me Mary was from the line of David, seed line means that a man comes from the line through their father's side, like fathers and forefathers

And if the scriptures really does say that the messiah was born of a virgin birth then something is wrong here, because the question that would be posed is that "Then if he was born of a virgin's birth, then why does it also say that he is the seed of David?"

    Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, but Mary did have a human father, she was in the line of David.

    Please read this prophecy in Isaiah 7:14 it says

    “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” Also please read the fulfillment of this verse at Matthew 1:22-23.

    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.

    Yes, Jesus was the result of a virgin birth.

    Nothing in the King James Bible says that Jesus comes from a "seed line" from David. Only that he was a descendant of David. It suffices that Mary was a descendant of David. It suffices that Joseph adopted Jesus as his son and acknowledged heir.

    Isaiah 7:14 shows that the Messiah would be born of a virgin. Some people pretend that the source word should have been translated as "young woman," but the definitions of the word in Strong's Concordance (young woman, maid, damsel, lass, etc.) all carry the connotation, expectation, or hope of virginity.

    The Bible is clear that Jesus is the son of Joseph. (John 1:45, Luke 3:23, Matt.1:1) 

    The idea that Mary did not have sex with her husband can be found in the Bible if you have the right commentary and other commentary can explain it away. We do have versions of Matthew that does not have a virgin birth. Luke's gospel only says Mary was a virgin before she was pregnant.

    Mary and Joseph were both from the tribe of Judah. Scriptures do not say the seed of David, but rather the son of David indicating lineage.

    Are you saying that a direct line from Gods is inferior to a line from man?

    Are you also saying that which was given to identify the Messiah is meaningless?

    Seems like you don't mind making a public fool of yourself.

    There's no such thing as a virgin birth. The very act of giving birth would break the hymen. Mary had a virgin conception. Thereafter everything else about the pregnancy and the birth was entirely normal, like with every other mother. The reason for the two different lines of genealogy is because of the different readership aimed at. The Levitical line was proved plus the Davidic line. And it all went back to Adam and Eve - the seed of the woman brought forth the promised one who would crush satan's head - Genesis 3:15

    God sent his Son to the earth by transferring his life to the womb of Mary a virgin.

    The holy scriptures says that Jesus came through the line of David.

    He was a historical person. For an example. see Luke 3:1,2, 21-23.

    Rumours abound that Jesus was the son of a HUMAN mother ( a descendant of David) and one of the NON-human GODS.

    No way to TEST this, UNLESS somebody can get blood samples from the Crown of Thorns ( Paris France) and the Shroud of Turin ( Turin, Italy), and check for a match, and see what a God's DNA looks like.

    Its the SEED of the woman that will crush the devil. Genesis 3:15 So it cannot be the seed of a man. However Mary was of the LINE of David. So do not give me that crp about it has to be the seed of a man. IT IS WRITTEN!!

    Virgin Birth is symbolic of the Virgo constellation the opposite of Pisces which is the age Jesus was an Avitar in. It doesn't matter if he existed or not but clearly this is a piscean belief system. I would think if he existed he was just a normal person someone made up a bunch or stroeies about. It's not like there wasn't a bunch of other "Messiah" cults around the exact same time talking about differnt people or people claiming this. So it's not likely to be true.
