1. Is A Man Whose Mother Became Pregnant Without Human Sperm, But By Spirit Intervention, Considered 100% Human?
Pregnant Without Human Sperm?
First, if we say that the Bible is our guided source for confirmation of that which is true as it pertains to God and the creation of his creatures (man) then the claim that “Only a human sperm could produce a 100% human” is not a true statement. This is not biblical, but rather a man-made opinion (or theory) which relies solely on the natural abilities of man and omits the supernatural abilities of God. However, that is not to say that it could not happen in this manner, but that the Bible does not make this statement nor provide any examples supporting this theory. Let me provide two Biblical examples that clearly refute this claim.
The First Two Examples are:
1) Adam -No one claims Adam to be less than 100% human (or part human).
2) Eve – No one claims Eve to be less than 100% human (or part human).
Neither, Adan or Eve was created by God applying Human “sperm” from some other “human”.
In addition, Eve was created from the rib of Adam, not from the “sperm” of Adam. In addition we have to be mindful that although the Bible does not actually say Eve was made from dirt, but from Adam’s rib, it can be concluded that if the rib came from Adam, who came from dirt, her fundamental nature also, as with all humans, would still be that of dirt and able to experience death (Job 34:15; Ps 104:29; Ecc 3:20, 12:7).
So as we can see from these examples above, the essence of someone being called “human” (or man) is not necessarily determined by it having received human sperm. (Ref: Jesus & Other Supernatural Births)
Of course after Adam and Eve were first “formed” (and then given “life”) and then “punished” for their disobedience, God did institute a process (the means) in which children (their offspring) would be brought forth (born/begotten) into this world (Gen 3:16). Notably, all human children come through the vessel of a woman. This aspect alone is generally not disputed. Jesus likewise was also birthed in this manner, in a vessel of a woman.
Furthermore, what human logic would we then claim made Adam totally 100% Human? There is no Biblical mention of human sperm being used to create his existence? Adam is “The Father” of all humans (which means the “beginning” in this case). So we can see the same “Divine Spirit” intervention” come into play when we speak of the birth of Jesus.
This process does not make Jesus half divine, at least not in the sense that Jesus inherently had the same nature and makeup that God possesses making Jesus ½ God from his Heavenly Father’s side & ½ Human from his Earthly Mother’s side (See: The Humanity Of Christ).
There are several facts we should consider pursuant to what qualifies something as being “totally human.”
Fact 1: The Woman Does Not Create Life
There is not one human who is able to “create life” (create a child) without God’s intervention. It is “the spirit” that gives man life (Isaiah 42:5; John 6:63) (Ref: G2227 = quickeneth = gives life). And all spirits are from God (What Is A Genuine Human?).
1: Humans are not capable of giving life to anything, although we use the terminology “birth” to say that we gave life to our children. In actuality, humans are ONLY “VESSELS” constructed by God for his purpose (1Cor 3:16, 6:19-20; Eph 2:22), and women, as vessels, are specifically constructed for, but not limited to, the following:
a.) carrying the formation of a child;
Consider the following Scriptures:
Jer 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Isa 44:24 Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;
Isa 49:5 And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.
b.) and the woman is the means by which “a child” is brought forth into this world (giving birth). As you recall from Genesis, it was the WOMAN, not the man, whom God chose as the “VESSEL” used for BIRTH!!
NOTE: The formation of life once it has been “birthed” (and breathing – thus “living”) is at this point called a “living soul.” (Job 33:4; Acts 17:25)
Fact 2: The “Process” By Which A Woman Can Give “Birth” Was Not Limited
There is not one Biblical mention anywhere “limiting” the means (or the process) by which a woman is capable of giving birth to a child. There is not one Biblical example reflecting that the only way for a woman to give birth to a child is that she must have had direct contact with a “human sperm” or had “sexual intercourse” as a prerequisite.
In fact, with the advent of today’s modern medical advancement, a woman can carry and give birth to another woman’s child; – So which woman is the mother? Now that is something to really think about.
Note: The surrogate is not biologically related to the fetus she’s carrying. The embryo is created with the intended mother’s egg or a donor egg plus the intended father’s sperm or donor sperm and then implanted into the surrogate.
Fact 3: The Process of “Birth” Is Not Restricted From God
In the Bible, Jesus is said to be “made of a woman” (Galatians 4:4) and Mary was the vessel God chose to use for the formation of this child named Jesus. (presumably 9 months)
Keep in mind that this word “Begotten” has several different ways in which it can be transliterated (worded) yet be describing the same incident or the same act committed by someone.
For Ex: In one passage Jesus was “begotten” by God (G1080) = means to “bring forth, make, etc..” In another passage, the same Greek word can mean “born”(G1080)
Heb 1:5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten(G1080) thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
Mat 1:16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born(G1080) Jesus, who is called Christ.
1Jn 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born(G1080) of God: and every one that loveth him that begat(G1080) loveth him also that is begotten(G1080) of him.
In the Bible, the “only begotten” (G3439) is used to convey an only child (and in this case, the only child born that was born in this unique manner) – by a woman who was also a “virgin” (Mat 1:18, 25).
English Words used in KJV:
only begotten 6
only child 1
[Total Count: 9]
from <G3441> (monos) and <G1096> (ginomai); only-born, i.e. sole :- only (begotten, child).
—Strong’s Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary
Note: So when the Bible reflects someone being begotten of God, it is usually in the context of “figurative speech” (in union/fellowship with God). In other words, the Bible does not reflect God literally going around having sexual relations with his created creatures (an earth woman), who was made from dirt. No, God made the woman for man!!
The woman was made for the man, not to satisfy God’s sexual desires – 1Cor 11:9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
Fact 4: The Supernatural Promises (Prophecies) Of God Will Be Fulfilled
A woman was called a “virgin” because she, literally and physically had not known a man (was somebody who has never had sexual intercourse), which correctly applies to the Virgin Mary: (Luke 1:34) “Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?” This text throws much light on the subject before us. The prophecy of Isaiah (Isaiah 7:14) implied what this very fact proved, that it was without human means the virgin conceived; and when she brought forth her son, she still remained a virgin (Mat 1:25). Here this supernatural event is accomplished, what power other than God could have brought it to pass? “The Lord himself will give you a sign.”
This is also in perfect agreement with the ancient prophecy found in Genesis 3:15, “The seed of the woman shall bruise the head of the serpent”; for the person who was to destroy the work of the devil was to be the progeny (offspring) of the woman, without any concurrence of the man. And, hence, the text of Genesis speaks (prophetically) of the virgin state of the person from whom Christ, according to the flesh, should come.
Note: According to the original promise, there was to be a seed, a human being, who should destroy sin; but this seed is noted as coming forth from the woman alone (Gen 3:15); and no woman alone could produce such a human being without the supernatural intervention of God.
