Was Mary’s Virginity Important?

The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us. Matt 1:23
We all know that the Bible tells us that Mary was a virgin when Jesus was conceived in her womb.  But is that a big deal? YES!  If she were not, then Jesus was just another holy man or a prophet.  But if she was, then He truly is God in the flesh.  God loved us so much that he did not just sent us another man to speak for Him, but His own Son, to die for us.
