Some Christians assume Jesus to be an incarnated God. And also they confess that God is one. The question is that: Would children of Jesus be divine too?
It was not the mission of Jesus to be married, besides to His Church. Thus, this question is pointless and has no sense.
If Jesus had had children, the most reasonable conclusion is that they would have been entirely human. His body was a human body, after all, and you can’t pass on “Godhood” through reproduction.
Remember, in Christian thinking, Jesus is not something like a Greek demigod, where He is “Son of God” because God literally took the place of a biological father. The Son existed as part of the Trinity before the Incarnation took place.
Jesus was not married. He had no need to be married.
Ive read a few things on this topic and while I dont believe Jesus was married, I do think many make the mistake of thinking this is true, due to in the times Jesus walked the earth, ‘Jesus’ was a fairly common name, so if they find records of a ‘Jesus’ with a wife and kids, they automatically think its the Jesus of the bible, or they use this to try and prove it to other people that he was married and had kids.
However, IF Jesus would have had any kids, they would most certainly not be a normal human being, they would have divine blood line and probably a DNA strand that no one could even comprehend!
This is also part of the hoax, some people truly believe there is a divine blood line, directly from Jesus and they actively try to find his ancestors thinking they can use this somehow to gain power or riches.
No, they would not be divine, since Jesus was fully human. It’s interesting to think that they would only have three grandparents, though.
It does bring up another interesting question: since God does not have DNA, would Jesus have been genetically identical to Mary, with the exception of being chromosomally XY? I would think so…
Women don’t have a Y chromosome, only X, so who would have contributed Jesus’ Y?
I dunno, but he was a man so I just assumed he’d have normal male makeup.
Um, I don’t know…God? “For man this is impossible but with God all things are possible.”
Somebody needs to write a book on this. It’s driving me craaazy.
Christ, the Bridegroom, has chose the Church to be His bride (See Ephesians 5:25–27).
There is no reason to think that Jesus was, physically, anything other than a perfectly normal human being. Divinity is not a biological or hereditary characteristic.
I’ve often thought his blood would have been very special along with his DNA… how else could one be washed clean in the blood of the lamb? Everybody knows regular blood doesn’t make one white as snow…
I don’t insult my God with hypothetical questions about a real Jesus that never married.If your question goes to the Hypostatic Union than you had best do research in that area. God bless your interest.
If Jesus is Son ofGod then children would be grandchild of God. Would not something be heritaged to grandchildren(descendants) from divinity? If God incarnated so the children
must take something from deity!
For my case Jesus was merely human so there is no any problem. I just try to point falsity of the doctrine.
God is one and out of time and matter. I do not insult God and never prophets and scriptures.
It is not an assumption, it is faith. Jesus Christ resurrected himself from the dead, raised the dead, and ascended into heaven, as we know from the testamony given in the scriptures. He said he was God.
56 Abraham your father rejoiced to see my day; he saw it[a] and was glad. 57 So the Jews said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old and you have seen Abraham?”** 58 [c]Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham came to be, I AM.”
20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.[a] And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
30 [a]The Father and I are one.”
31 The Jews again picked up rocks to stone him. 32 Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from my Father. For which of these are you trying to stone me?” 33 The Jews answered him, “We are not stoning you for a good work but for blasphemy. You, a man, are making yourself God.”**
I am sorry if my post suggested you insulted God. Your understanding of Jesus is different to mine and your comment was not insulting. Any comment I would make would be an insult to Jesus as I believe Him to be God. Sorry if there was any implication on your post to that effect. God bless.
