Jesus' DNA

Maybe this post will seem frivolous or even downright blasphemous, but I have to ask.

Have you ever wonder about Jesus’ DNA? He must have had DNA since he was fully human. He was the son of Mary—and the Son of God. But it couldn’t have been the same as Mary’s or Jesus would have been a clone.

Did Jesus have the DNA of Adam? Or was it more nearly that of David, the “man after God’s own heart?” And what does it mean that Jesus was made like us in every way, except without sin? One thing is certain; all of this says something about his full humanity—including his DNA.

Do you think Jesus was literally the son of God?

I think he had Joseph's DNA as well as Mary's. No comments survive about him not looking like his dad.

Oddly, I have thought about the clone issue...but then there are those pesky gender problems (Mary being a girl and all). Excellent question, though. I think he had a bit from Mary and a bit ...um...created special???
