Today, focus is on Incarnation, and the substance from GOD deposited within Jesus Christ that makes him a “son of God.” What Jesus contains that makes him an offspring to divinity are the inseparable aspects of sacred spirit (e.g., faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, righteousness, wisdom, wrath against sin). What the Lord contained that made him human on the earth was flesh (e.g., appetite, mind, mortality, sensation, sentiment). One of the many fighters at “Yahoo!

Christians if jesus is son of god then half of his genetic material should come from god!that means god have dna!!how do you explain this?
THE GOLDEN ARROW: And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible. (Luke 1: 26-37, King James Version, KJV)

“Anonymous”, your thoughts seem pinned to the academic models describing biological and sexual reproduction that ignore the operations of divinity by centering only on what is carnal, material, secular, and social. The existence, power and possibilities of spirit substance can not be completely and correctly known while depending upon carnal reason, secular knowledge, and such finite tools as intellect, logic, philosophy, and science. Many false and inappropriate assumptions are made, and ideas from conjecture and speculation are relied on that have no validity (truth value).
The holy writings actually do provide a language and coherent set of meanings and values that even permit consideration of the full aggregation of spirit substance (we say, the Godhead). Acknowledging ourselves as made in the image and through the processes of divinity, created beings and living creatures seek communication, exchange, and continuous interactions with divinity (we say, ongoing relationships). In addition to active presence, authority, balance, completeness, and perfection, divinity is understood as appearing through the use of form and multiple persons (the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). In agreement with this, divine law, diverse principles, and sacred standards should come into view that include the living completing mortality; oneness without sameness; sinners receiving imparted spirit content from the makeup of GOD; rebirth, spiritual revival, and regeneration; resurrection from the dead; and the final destruction of sin through the second death.
There is far more to be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 1st Corinthians 2: 9-14, King James Version (KJV): 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
