    Jesus received, only Jesus, without a Y Chromosome from Sinful Earth.
    If we Cloned a baby today, we can never know thus not copy that Y that Jesus had.

    Adam and Eve came before the fall, Jesus came after. To say that Jesus didn't have a sinful nature is to take away from his humanity. The Bible says that God cannot be tempted and it also says that Jesus was tempted in everyway that we are. The whole point of the Atonement was for Jesus to face temptation and sin, but to overcome it by living a sinless life. Jesus had to face and overcome temptation just like us in his human nature, but once he overcome it, it was a permanent atonement because of his divine nature. Jesus was born a human being. He was fully human and fully divine. He had everything that makes him human, including the sinful nature from his mother that all humans are born with. Remember in the Garden when he was sweating blood and he asked the father to remove the cup from him yet not my will but your will. That was his human nature fighting him. To say he had no sin nature is to take away from his humanity, which was the reason he was born of a woman when he could've just manifested in the form of a human

    Amen.
    Koukl takes on the hard questions once again, performing well. "It is an accidental property." Nailed it.

     Sin is Personal not Natural. Pesons sin, Natures do not. Sin is not a substance that is passed. Sin does not inhere in Nature. Rom 5 says death is passed from Adam, not sin itself. The ancient church's Christology is crucial here. Our Nature is corrupted, fallen, and mortal because of the fall, but it is not sinful. Christ refrains from sin because he is a divine Person, not because his Nature is somehow different. We are fallen human Persons acting against Nature. His Nature is exactly as ours is, Chalcedon says he is consubstantial with us according to his humanity which he assumed "without change". He gets his humanity from his mother. He is able to die, so it is mortal. Christ recapitulates human Nature in himself. What he assumes he heals, so the humanity he assumes is not some pristine prelapsarian humanity created ex nihilo.

    Are we sure Jesus didn't have a sinful nature, and that he was simply empowered by the Holy Spirit to overcome it? It seems the verses that indicates he truly relates to our struggles would be even more true if this was the case. Just a thought.
