Dr. Amy Peeler is Associate Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College and Graduate School and a frequent contributor to this podcast. Her research has concentrated in the Letter to the Hebrews, Paul and Gender, and the Gospel of Mark. Her most recent book is Women and the Gender of God. Today’s topic: The conception of Jesus in Matthew 1:20 presents a delicate challenge for exegetes, theologians, and Bible translators. The event is neither sexualized nor “spiritualized,” but presents to us, without answering all our questions, the fullness of the incarnation of the Son of God, the child of Mary.
