The hastened and speeded pillaging and looting of Aram and Samaria would have taken place during this deportation.
This means that Immanuel would have been about 9 years old when he came to know right from wrong and that Maher-shalal-hash-baz spoke his first words when the King of Assyria deported the Kingdom of Israel.
From the account of signs and portents of the deportation of the northern Kingdom the writer of Matthew says the birth of Jesus by a virgin was prophesied by Isaiah according to the angel of the L-rd in the dream of Joseph.
There was no such prophecy. There was a woman with child and that child was named Immanuel as a sign and portent that Judah would not be defeated and deported along with the northern Kingdom.
The angel of the L-rd would not tell Joseph in a dream that the prophet (Isaiah) said a virgin would bear a child to be named Jesus when he did not. The young women about to give birth who is with Isaiah is his concubine not a virgin and the child is named Immanuel as a sign and portent that G-d is with the Kingdom of Judah.
The angel of the Lord would not tell Joseph in a dream that the Holy Ghost impregnated Mary. The person of the spirit of the Holy G-d has no human form and does not have the power to create life.
The dream of Joseph has nothing to do with the Jewish bible and the HaMosiach who is Elijah that comes with the angel of the covenant of G-d’s forgiveness of the sins of the Jewish people described in Isaiah 11 and 53 and Malachi 3. HaMoshiach means “G-d’s anointed king” and is translated as Messiah in Greek and English.
When Jesus describes his cousin as John the Baptist he uses the very verse of Malachi 3/1 that says Elijah comes with the angel of the covenant of sin forgiveness for the Jewish people G-d declared in Jeremiah 31 for a time to come.
Jesus omits the angel of the covenant of sin forgiveness for the Jewish people from the verse and Jesus claims he is the man described in Isaiah 53 that describes Elijah.
Jesus did not know how to interpret the Jewish bible and he changed what the scripture and prophets said to fit the story he wanted everyone to believe. That he died for the sins of the Jewish people. If John the Baptist was Elijah they were already forgiven.
The stories of Jesus including dreams of Joseph and factual accounts are all based on word of mouth from one storyteller to the next long after the death of Jesus and when finally put in writing the strategy and device of giving the oral accounts credibility was to tie the story to the Jewish Bible.
The problem is the Jewish Bible has no such story or prophecy.
18Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
23Behold, a virgin shall…
