Rabbi Tovia Singer Explores the Life of the Virgin Mary
Mary has been venerated by millions since early Christianity. Why and how did these stories of her own life develop at such an early stage of the Church? Did Isaiah predict that the Messiah would be born to a virgin, and was therefore, quite literally, the son of God? Does the Septuagint (LXX) support claims made by New Testament authors about Jesus? Rabbi Tovia Singer answers these questions regarding the virgin Mary, as he thoroughly explores the Jewish Scriptures and early Christian literature.
