How did Jesus receive His DNA?

If Jesus was truly man how did he receive his full DNA?

Dear Yinekka,

Jesus is fully human and fully divine. He received all His DNA from His mother because His Father is God. He also received His mother from His Father who is the ultimate source of our parents as well.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
