“Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”” Matthew 1:20-21 NIV (BibleGateway.com)
Joseph is in the family line of David! Joseph, perhaps Mary is from David’s lineage as well, but if Mary is not David’s family line and Mary is not – then I think it is clearly Joseph’s blueprint – his dna that influenced the look and design of the King of Kings! God in the flesh!!! This does not take away from Mary being a virgin. it was Joseph’s dna And Jesus probably looked like a clone of Joseph. This likeness aided Mary and especially Joseph. I believe Joseph and Mary often heard “He sure looks like his Father!” And they would agree thinking that He must be exactly like His Heavenly Father.
What is conceived in Her is from the Holy Spirit!! I love this phrase, “What is conceived in her” “is from the Holy Spirit” Yes Mary is chaste!
I would love to hear other’s opinions! Do you think the FATHER made Jesus look like Joseph? Do you think it is Joseph’s dna? I personally think it is Joseph’s dna. I think Jesus did what the Father did and said what the Father said, His Heavenly Eternal All Knowing Father; but I also believe Jesus looked like his earthly care giver and from the line of David, earthly dad – Joseph. God always creates win-win for all of His children, Romans 8:28, He interweaves complex things into simple harmony.
