    I read a commentary that listed this passage as Pauls take on the virgin birth what say ye to this?

    I guess I would have to read that commentary. Paul believed in the virgin birth but there is nothing in this passage that I can see that indicates this is his Amen to it. At least nothing jumps out in the Greek. God used a woman to bring His Son into the world, but it is not indicate the miracle of it here since the context is redeeming us from the law not an apologetic for the divinity of Christ. You cannot cover every doctrine in every discourse or sermon so someone would seem to be reading a lot into this verse as I see it.
