Jesus Human Birth 35

Holy Spirit

Conception at Two WeeksAt and before Jesus' human birth, his divine nature lay within him. Mary's labor was probably similar to normal labor and in most respects Jesus' human birth was presumably like any other human birth. While our understanding can only be elemental at best, the Holy Spirit apparently came and formed the divine part of the fetus of Jesus' body.✞

Mary + Holy Spirit = Jesus
(Human) + (Divine) = (Human/Divine)
Dies + Eternal = Resurrection

Conception

bluebellsThe angel told Mary about Jesus' human birth and that the Holy Spirit would come upon her. Joseph vehemently denied any sexual contact, so it must have been the Holy Spirit who planted the "God-sperm." There was probably all the trauma of labor, an umbilical cord to cut, and an afterbirth. Jesus' Christological conception does not necessarily make nonsense of the scientific processes involved. God generally follows natural laws, but the incarnation points up the truth that he sometimes twists these patterns to achieve his will. Apart from that crucial formative moment, Jesus' human birth was probably in most other respects normal.
