    Was Jesus Christ as a man genetically related to any other human beings?

    Is it possible, or impossible with man's inherited genetic defects as the result of sin? Jesus Christ was sinless, and was the spotless Lamb that was sacrificed (1 Peter 1:19).

    Hi PlanksandNails,
    Didn't Jesus Himself answer this question when He said :

    "What think ye of Christ? whose son is He?" They say unto him, "The son of David."
    He saith unto them, "How then doth David in spirit call Him Lord, saying,
    'The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?' If David then call him Lord, how is He his son?"
    It is a puzzle but I think that it is both possible and impossible. He is the spotless Lamb but He is the Lamb among the sheep. He is both the Lamb and the Shepherd. He is all - the beginning and the end, the Savior and Judge. He is worthy to be praised as He was worthy to be slain.

      Jesus Christ was sinless as a man in a mortal vessel. This is amazing to consider.

    I think I would say yes because he was biologically Mary's son. His ancestry via Mary goes back to the time of David, actually further. Christ was Son of God and Son of Man, meaning both deity and humanity. He was a sinless human being. Sin takes place in the soul and it does corrupt the body as well, however I don't think every human body has a genetic defect other than it does not live forever and can become ill.

    I think the union of the Holy Spirit and Mary (God and Man) is significant and of great importance.

    The Bible says "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us" (Jn 1:14). "By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God. And every spirit that does not confess Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God" (1 Jn 4:2-3) and "for many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist" (2Jn 7). Scientifically I found this http://www.bibleanswerstand.org/QA_DNA.htm. But bottom line to me is that he was fully human as well as fully God and I think that means genetically related to human beings. His body was corruptible in that he suffered physically in the Garden through the cross.
    To me it's not an issue that would change my understanding that He is God. Just my thoughts.

      Thank-you for a well thought out answer. Jesus in His humanity was in a mortal body that was meant to die for a reason. Additionally, I believe that the geneology from Adam to Jesus is also important too.

    PandN- Jesus would only have the genes from His mother's side of the family, if we are talking about human genetics. His mother Mary was also a decendent of King David.

    Great question.

    No., he wasn't . His " father" is/was God and Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spitit.  " what is born of the Spirit is Spirit) - God only took the flesh of Jesus from Nazareth.

      Yes, He was born of spirit, but emptied Himself into a fleshly vessel.

    since His geneology is written in the scriptures and includes men and women that were born of Adam and Eve I must say yes of course.   we are also told He was a man like as we are. The answer is YES

    He was like us in all ways but sin. In all ways.
