What Mormons Don't Know About the Virgin Birth

We all know the story of the Virgin Birth? But do we? Mormonish cohosts Rebecca and Landon dig deeper into the origins of the virgin birth story to analyze it's validity and learn more about the mythology around it. This episode was orginally released in 2022, but we are re-releasing it now in tandum with a Backyard Professor episode we will be doing on Thursday night (May 4th, 2023), covering the Gospel Topic Essary, "Are Mormons Christian?" This was a fascinating topic to research and we learned a lot, we hope you will too.
