120. Jesus: Seed of the woman.

As strange as it may sound, there is an uniqueness in the conception of Christ because when the Bible traces male genealogies, the Messiah is called the 'seed of the woman' and not the 'seed of man'! Why didn't God say while cursing the serpent, "I will put enmity between you and the man, between your offspring (seed) and his?" Why should it be the 'seed of the woman'? Since it all began with the serpent deceiving the woman, it was the woman who had the right to avenge (inflict harm in return for a wrong done to oneself or another) the wrong done to her, in keeping with God's sense of justice. Interestingly, it is God himself, the Messiah who was the 'seed of the woman', who avenged the wrong because vengeance belongs to the Lord! "It is mine to avenge; I will repay." (Deuteronomy 32:35) It was as if Eve left 'room for God's wrath'! (Romans 12:19)

However, sin is accounted for under under the male line of descent and generational curses travel down to the third and fourth generation via the male lineage. Therefore sin entered the world through Adam, though he was not the one who was deceived. 'Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.' (1 Timothy 2:14) 'Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man and death through sin and in this way death came to all men because all sinned ... even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who was a pattern of the one to come.' (Romans 5:12-14) The Messiah had to be sinless and therefore could not be born as the 'seed of man' lest he be born a sinner though he had't done anything wrong. Of course he is later referred to as as the 'seed of Abraham' and as the 'son of David', meaning he was to be born as a Hebrew in the house of David but he couldn't be born as their genetic descendant lest he be conceived in sin as David said about himself. (Psalm 51:5) So he was born as the 'seed of woman', and his conception had nothing to do with a man. 'He was the son, so it was thought, of Joseph' ( Luke 3:23), but not! There was absolutely nothing of a male parentage in his conception! Recent discovery of blood stains on the replica of the ark of the covenant placed in a cave beneath Golgotha, the place he was crucified, has been found to be that of a man who had only 23 chromosomes, when it is supposed to be 23 pairs of chromosomes, proving that the Messiah was indeed purely the 'seed of the woman', with no contribution of chromosomes from an earthly father. (Seed as referred to in science means the product as the result of the union of the male and female gametes, which is capable of growing fully into another of the same species.) Truly, the offspring (seed) of Mary's womb was unique! In a sense, he was a clone of the first Adam, produced asexually and therefore sinless! 'Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.'(1 Timothy 3:16) Hallelujah. Amen
