…rom my point of view, creation, whether it appears to be, miraculous or natural, is still creation. We can only accept someone to be the father of a son if the substance of the father and the substance of the mother are both shared equally or partially so that at least some of the substance of the body of the child is derived from the substance of the father. From this it should become very clear to the reader that God did not play any fatherly role at all …
Perhaps the role of father and son would have been understood differently when this was written in first century Palestine?
Thanks for sharing this writing!
