Where did the male seed come from that paired with Mary’s egg to form the new body who grew up to be named Jesus…?
The New Testament is vague, no confusing, in this regard – so let’s see if we can reason it out.
Luke 1:34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” 35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you…”.
So did Gabriel impregnate her with a seed from heaven?
Two problems with that:
1. It goes directly against Jesus’ own words “flesh begets flesh, spirit begets spirit”.
2. If Jesus was “half God”, then he has absolutely nothing in common with me, because I know that I am 100% human.
What did the people who knew him think about it..?
Mark 6:“Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? 3 Isn’t this the carpenter(‘s son)? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?”
How did they know they were brothers and sisters…? Because they all looked like SIBLINGS. They all looked alike. It was a known family unit, nothing at all unusual, except for His SPIRIT speaking.
You see, the simple truth is that Gabriel took a seed from Joseph’s body and implanted into the Mary. She was still a virgin and her baby was 100% HUMAN!!
But the Spirit inside the baby was 100% DIVINE GOD, CREATOR AND FATHER of our spirits.
So that now makes Jesus “100% God and 100% Human” – both at the same time.
Confusion? Skedaddle!! FLEE… Get out of here!!!
