Is the Virgin Conception of Jesus Necessary and Reasonable?

As the Christmas season is upon us, J. Warner Wallace of Cold Case Christianity began a series of broadcasts in which he will examine the virgin conception of Jesus.  The first installment thinks through the subject questions using the following outline:

Why is the Doctrine of the Virgin Conception Necessary?
  1. The virgin conception is a piece of evidence of Jesus’ as the Messiah.
  2. The virgin conception is an essential explanation of Jesus’ nature.
  3. The virgin conception is an essential truth of God.
Why is the Doctrine of the Virgin Conception Reasonable?
  1. Naturalism is a worldview under examination.
  2. Naturalism therefore should not be a presupposition.
  3. Naturalism accepts at least one extra-natural event.
  4. Naturalism may not, therefore, be an accurate view of the world.
The broadcast can be viewed here. Enjoy and be sure to catch the next installments!

Stand firm in Christ,
Chase
