This is a prophetic Sign 'oWT =SHMEION of cosmic proportions, not an everyday
commonplace (Isaiah 7:11, 14a).
Ben, does that mean that the miraculous birth happened in Ahaz' lifetime?
Seems if it was a miraculous sign ('oWT =SHMEION) to him, it had to happen in
his time. After all Issaiah was trying to get him to trust God.
I am not trying to turn the discussion to a theological debate. I translate
Matthew as Virgin because of the word PARQENOS. I translate Is. 7:14 as young
woman because of the Oxford lexicon.
