    My currrent view on this is that the virgin birth was a "sign" pointing to
    the incarnation. It, like the resurrection, was an affirmation of Jesus'
    divine character. I guess I would say that the virgin birth was not a
    requirement for the incarnation but a sign pointing to it.

    I would value the response of those with theological training of which I
    have none.
