Torrey - Christ -3.3- Human Parentage of Christ

III. HUMAN PARENTAGE. Luke 2:7 — "And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn." Acts 2:30 — "Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne." Acts 13:23 — "Of this man's seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a saviour, Jesus." Romans 1:3 — "Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh." Galatians 4:4 "But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law." Hebrews 7:14 "For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Judah of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood."

Proposition:Jesus Christ had human parentage and human ancestry. He was Mary's son and David's seed.

Mary was as truly the mother of Jesus Christ as God was His Father.
