Lord's Day 14

  • Q. 35.  What is the meaning of these words — “He was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary”?
    A.  That God’s eternal Son, who is and continueth true and eternal God,1 took upon Him the very nature of man, of the flesh and blood of the Virgin Mary,2 by the operation of the Holy Ghost;3 that He might also be the true seed of David,4 like unto His brethren in all things, sin excepted.5

  • Q. 36.  What profit dost thou receive by Christ’s holy conception and nativity?
    A.  That He is our Mediator,6 and, with His innocence and perfect holiness, covers in the sight of God my sins,7 wherein I was conceived and brought forth.
