I found the following in an article from The Seattle Times entitled, “What would Jesus’ DNA do?”:
"Georgetown University professor of theology John Haught [wrote], ‘To imply that Jesus is somehow exempt from ordinary natural laws and biological patterns [including having DNA and male chromosomes] would, in my view, be a failure to take the incarnation seriously.’
This is hard to square with the virgin birth in light of modern biology. It’s true that asexual reproduction, called parthenogenesis, happens in some fish, insects, and even a lizard species, and artificially in a few mammals, through cloning.
But if cloning or parthenogenesis were involved, Jesus would look a lot more like Mary. He’d be a woman, for one thing, since females always beget females.
In humans, females package some of their DNA in two matched X chromosomes, males in a single X and Y. So if you’re a male, there’s only one way you could have gotten your Y chromosome, and that’s from your biological father.
Where would Jesus have gotten his Y?"
If Jesus’ DNA could be analyzed today, what do you think it would show?
Jesus, being fully man in addition to being fully God, would have had a full set of human genes. Every normal set of human genes has paired alleles from the father and the mother, except in the Y chromosome. Where did Jesus get his “father” alleles? If God created a sperm cell with a Y chromosome and alleles untainted with Adamic behavioral traits or original sin wouldn’t that mean Jesus wasn’t a descendant of Adam but, only of Eve considering he would only be inheriting Mary’s mitochondrial DNA and the non-Adamic Y chromosome created in that instance? How would this relate with that in Biblical times descent was usually only traced paternally through the father?
Any help would be much appreciated.
