comment What did Jesus say about the end times?
@gideonmarx: Whether they took place 2000 years ago or not really isn't relevant to whether they are about "end times."

comment By what did Jesus call Joseph?
@AndreasBlass: I would be surprised if Jewish law made provisions for immaculate conceptions. Whether Jesus' would have been found, in court, to be a bastard child or the son of Joseph can only be answered by speculation, but it's obvious that from a social standpoint, Joseph was accepted as Jesus' father.

comment Is there a Christian definition of “social justice?”
If you were to narrow the focus of the question to a specific denomination, it may be possible to provide an answer. Otherwise, the question is either too broad or primarily opinion based, I'm afraid.

comment Is there a Christian definition of “social justice?”
@MattGutting: I'm not arguing with the strict meaning of your statement (that it could be possible to have a common definition but different applications), I'm only arguing that that's clearly not the actual case.

comment What is the source DNA for the body of Jesus?
@Bye: I don't see an answer there. Maybe it exists, but it would help me, and I suspect the OP, if you spell out what answer you think is evident there.

comment By what did Jesus call Joseph?
@Zoe: Joseph was technically Jesus' stepfather. It's quite common to call a stepfather "father."

comment Is there a Christian definition of “social justice?”
@MattGutting: For instance, the Westboro Baptist Church seems to think that social justice is best served by picketing funerals and waving hate posters. Most other Christian groups would think that is the antithesis of social justice. I don't think it's a simple matter of different applications of the same principle of justice.

comment What is the source DNA for the body of Jesus?
@Bye: It seems to address it more closely... but I think it's still missing the main point of the question. Where did Jesus get his DNA? From Mary alone? From Mary + God? Or from Mary + some other man?

comment Is there a Christian definition of “social justice?”
There is clearly not a standard Christian definition, when you consider many Christian groups oppose each other on social justice issues.

I don't think this question is "primarily opinion based"... although I think any answers will be!

comment What is the source DNA for the body of Jesus?
@Bye: That doesn't address the question, though, which asks specifically if his DNA is 1) 100% identical to Mary, 2) 100% unique (not borrowed from Mary at all), or 3) 50% from Mary, 50% from a human male. The question seems to assume that his DNA is 100% human--it just wants to know from WHICH human(s) did it come.

comment What is the source DNA for the body of Jesus?
@Loduwijk: What I'm saying is that I don't see this answer addressing the issue of DNA at all, but more about the essence of Jesus. I think #1 is a reasonable answer to the question--I just don't see that answer presented here.

comment What is the source DNA for the body of Jesus?
So your answer is... Jesus' DNA was 100% identical to Mary's DNA? I really don't see how this answers the question.

But Kudos on a well-formulated, thoughtful question. And +1 for actually searching the site before asking!

comment What is the source DNA for the body of Jesus?
I think both this question, and the one you liked to, are 'Primarily opinion based.' Any answers will be pure speculation.

comment If God is one then why is belief in God insufficient?
Your understanding is flawed. Christianity doesn't say simply that you must accept that the one true God exists. What it does say is that we must follow the example of Jesus, and admit that we are sinful, and that only through the grace of Jesus Christ can we attain salvation. Jews don't say that, since they deny that Christ can save us.

comment What tribe is David from?
I have edited your question to remove the parts which are irrelevant to the core question. They may make for additional useful questions, however, they just aren't meaningful to answering this question.

comment Is there Biblical support for the concept that 'Whenever a man lies with a woman…a transcendental relation is set up between them'?
@Andrew: I'm afraid I can't. I can say what I think it might mean, but it would be better to rely on the Lewis text.

comment why do we use the name “jesus” if the apostles did not use it?
@Mr.Bultitude: Yesh'ua (Heb.) is rendered "Jesus" or "Joshua" today. It is his given name. -- Specifically that part of the other answers this question. Namely, this question is based on a misunderstanding that Jesus is different than Yeshua.

@Mr.Bultitude: But the answer is the same.
