Atheist questions the validity of Messiah’s hypostatic union:“On a church website this was posted: It seems there are only 3 options for considering the composition of Jesus’ DNA:
- Jesus has 100% Mary’s DNA with a divinely created Y chromosome to make Him male.
- Jesus has 50% DNA from a human female (Mary) and 50% DNA from God, to replace that of a human male.
- Jesus has DNA created entirely by God at the time of His conception.
Every human being and their DNA is 100% created entirely by God which is our complex genome (Genesis 1:26-28). Jesus Christ, as prophesied as early as Genesis 3:15, was born of the seed of the woman (virgin) and fertilized by the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:35) as first introduced in Genesis 1:2. This combination of man and God is referred to theologically as the “hypostatic union” (Philippians 2:5-8) which was essential if Jesus was to fulfill His primary objective within the Realm of Time; that is, “to destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b) and accomplish this mission via the Gospel that was ordained “before the beginning of Time” (2 Timothy 1:9-10) and this Gospel is first pictured for us by Elohim in Genesis 3:21; that is, God Himself clothing man in His own “robe of righteousness” through imputation (2 Corinthians 5:21) through the shedding of innocent blood (Hebrews 4:14-16; Luke 22:20) while rejecting man’s attempts to cover his own sin and shame through the works of his hands i.e. fig leaves (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:20).
Messiah’s hypostatic union of God and man permitted Messiah to circumvent the sin-nature that is passed genomically through the seed of the first man, Adam (Romans 5:12-21) and successively through our Earthly father. Jesus, though tempted in all ways just as we (Hebrews 4:15), remained physiologically and spiritually pure during His 33.5-year sojourn upon this Earth (John 8:46) thereby permitting Jesus to fulfill the mandates of the Sinai Decalogue and the 613-Levitical Laws (Matthew 5:17), something no man born of the seed of Adam could accomplish due to the sin-nature; the fulfillment of the Laws of God with absolute perfection qualified Messiah Jesus to be the ONLY acceptable atonement for sin as per the Law which mandates said Laws must be obeyed with perfection if righteousness is to be attained through Law (James 2:10; Galatians 3:10; Deuteronomy 27:26).
Void Messiah’s hypostatic union of God and man and blood, mankind would be lost in sin and hopeless in this condition as God the Father has so decreed that nothing impure will ever enter His Kingdom (Revelation 21:27); therefore, the Father has decreed by Covenant and Grace (John 3:16) that anyone who “believes” in the Son, Jesus Christ, believes that Jesus is God who died to pay their sin-debt, believes this sincerely in their heart and confesses this with their mouth, believes that Jesus was raised from the dead for their justification, they will be forgiven of all sin, past-present-future, and Guaranteed eternal life with God through the Gift of the indwelling Holy Spirit who takes-up residence within the faithful in Christ and daily walks them in the process of sanctification-obedience as the faithful are prepared for service in God’s Kingdom i.e. The New Jerusalem (Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 1:13-14; 1 John 2:27; Galatians 5:16; Revelation 21).
