Lord's Day #14 Conceived and Born of Mary


These recordings were are from our morning worship services here at Northland Reformed. Each week we read and reflect on one of the Heidelberg Catechism's 52 Lord's Days.

Lord’s Day 14
35. What is the meaning of “conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary?”

That the eternal Son of God, who is1 and continues true and eternal God,2 took upon Himself the very nature of man, of the flesh and blood of the virgin Mary,3 by the operation of the Holy Spirit;4 so that He might also be the true seed of David,5 like unto His brethren in all things,6 except for sin.7

  1. What benefit do you receive from the holy conception and birth of Christ?

That He is our Mediator,1 and with His innocence and perfect holiness covers, in the sight of God, my sin, wherein I was conceived.2
