There is also prophetic significance to the virgin birth.
Isaiah 7:14 [NIV] – “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.”
Matthew 1: 22-23 [NIV] – “All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”—which means, “God with us.”
John 1: 12-13 – “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.”
The virgin birth points us to the helplessness of humanity to even start the process that leads to salvation.
Luke 1: 31,32,35 [NIV] – “You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High…The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.”
Romans 15:17 [NLT] – “For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.”
1 Corinthians 15:22 [NIV] – “For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.”
“Adam's sin was not imputed to Jesus because Jesus was not "in Adam." He was the new Adam, a new head, a fresh start for the human race… [the virgin birth] was a sign that the link with Adam had been broken. Jesus was not born of a virgin so he could be sinless; he was born of a virgin to show he was sinless. …Jesus was the seed of the woman, but he was not the seed of Adam. He was the new Adam, a fresh start, an alternative head for humanity.

The virgin birth does not prove that Jesus was sinless
The virgin birth is important so we can know that Jesus IS the sinless Son of God
