Firstly, I would like to wish you all a happy new years, and a glorious Nativity Feast, to come! I was delving on the season of Advent, and decided to look at the Thursday Theotokia for some details. I saw a couple contradictory verses, so I decided to do some research. The verses that say that 1) ...For her sake He revoked, the first curse. Which was pronounced upon our race, through the violation, incurred by the first woman, when she ate from the fruit of the tree. 2) He was also born according to the flesh without pain for the Virgin.
From what I understand, the Virgin had deep pain, until she gave birth, and that was painless; the actual birth.
This doesn't seem too right to me. Is there anything I am missing. I know that there was another thread about this, so please don't refer me to it but I am looking forward to see your answers.
