The Virgin Birth

Here is an article from the Slate. It is a discussion between three historians concerning the virgin birth of Jesus.

I don't necessarily agree with their conclusions, but I do agree that historical methodology is not theological methodology. Whether or not the story is true (though I believe it is) it is first and foremost a theological truth. We must also recognize that there is more to determining the truth of something than empirical study and proof.
