In Matthew 1:18, it talks about Jesus’ “birth”. Though Jesus was in the mind/plan/purpose of God, Jesus the Messiah did not have his genesis or his beginning until he was begotten. None of us, including Jesus the Messiah, did not exist until we came into existence.
Matthew and Luke tell us about the ‘begetting’ or ‘genesis’ of Jesus, when and how it happened (Matt. 1:1: genesis; 1:18: genesis; 1:20: begetting in Mary). If Jesus actually preexisted, then he did not really begin to exist as the Bible tells us.
Mary did not take into herself an already existing Son of God. She was not a surrogate mother. Jesus had his origin (genesis) in Mary, not outside of Mary, a mother who was older than her son – as all mothers are. Jesus was not older than his mother and certainly not older than his ancestor David who lived a thousand years earlier than he or even older than Abraham!
Nowhere in Scripture does it say Mary conceived “God the Son.” Why keep entertaining this philosophical thought that is never taught to us in Scriptures?
Through a supernatural intervention, Mary conceived a real fetus, God’s own son, a real human being who is the Son of God from the seed of David.
Nowhere does the Bible say “God the Son.”
See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ. Col. 2:8
