Where Was Jesus Before He Was Born?

  No human being who has ever walked this earth has ever had a previous existence -- except for One Person. 

  The One about Whose life everything was miraculous, including His birth: Jesus the Christ. 

  Of course, He and everything He did would be robed in the supernatural, because He alone is the Son of God.  

  Neither was Jesus shy about His origins. He spoke quite directly about that (italics mine for emphasis):

  "No one has ascended into heaven except the One who descended from heaven—the Son of Man." John 3:13

  "... what if you were to observe the Son of Man ascending to where He was before?" John 6:62 

  "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End." Revelation 22:13

  So did the Apostle John, who wrote this about Jesus:

  1 "In the beginning was the Word,
      and the Word was with God,
      and the Word was God.

  2  He was with God in the beginning.

  All things were created through Him,
      and apart from Him 
      not one thing was created
      that has been created." John 1

  As did the Apostle Paul, who wrote:

10 "The One who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things." Ephesians 4

  As did the author of the Book of Hebrews:

  8 "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." Hebrews 13

  As expected, the prophets of the Old Testament concur:

25 "Long ago You established the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands.

26 They will perish, but You will endure; all of them will wear out like clothing. You will change them like a garment, and they will pass away.

27 But You are the same, and Your years will never end." Psalm 102

  2 "Bethlehem Ephrathah, you are small among the clans of Judah; One will come from you to be ruler over Israel for Me. His origin is from antiquity, from eternity." Micah 5

  6 "For a child is born to us, a son is given to us; dominion will rest on his shoulders, and he will be given the name Pele-Yo‘etz El Gibbor Avi-‘Ad Sar-Shalom [Wonder of a Counselor, Mighty God, Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace]..." Isaiah 9, CJB

  As does the Father:

10 "And: In the beginning, Lord, You established the earth, and the heavens are the works of Your hands;

11 they will perish, but You remain. They will all wear out like clothing;

12 You will roll them up like a cloak, and they will be changed like a robe. But You are the same, and Your years will never end." Hebrews 1

  No prophet of Israel could ever have made the same claim, because there is only One Son of God.

  His Name is Jesus!
