Was Jesus male before the Incarnation?


#1

Before Jesus’s divine nature was fused with his human nature, was Jesus male?


#2

Before the Incarnation the Son was pure spirit, just as are the Father and the Holy Spirit. As such, he did not have gender at that time. Only when the Son incarnated as the man Christ Jesus did he become male. The Father and the Holy Spirit remain pure spirit and so do not have gender.
