Well this is the only way the whole virgin birth scenario could fit...

I haven't heard of any female demigod that was released into the world with a virgin birth.  They have always been men.

Too many sometimes.

But perhaps, one of the many individuals used to make up the character we read in the Bible was a woman?

No... Well yeah... Jesus is claimed to be a parthenogenesis birth, but only females are produced in this manner.

Papameter's reading near perfect zero on this one. This was well before women's liberation.

This would only be valid if you're saying a man determined what sex Gods child would be.  Surely God sees that women are equal to men, so could have easily have sent a daughter rather than a son?

It's curious, but the new theology Christians were spreading throughout the polytheistic Roman Empire was, indeed, sort of leaving women lacking a female motif of worship, such as Isis and child. Thus, the early artistic representations of the Christ were androgynous--almost hemanphroditic. It was only after the rise of Mary worship, represented in art with child, like Isis, that the artistic version of Christ became more manly and bearded and almost Zeus-like in Greek representations.

Luke 2:21 - Jesus was circumcised according to the laws of Moses.  Worst thread ever?

Well, not that I even entertain the OP, female circumcision is definitely a thing.

True.....but not for the Jewish.  The laws of Moses only called for circumcision of males, not females. See Genesis chapter 17.

If the question is 'ghost after his death' the meter does get a little happy.

Nope. I dont think anyone in that time and place would have been fooled.

If God is "male", it's very easy to assume that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are all "male" also.

You're putting 21st century thinking onto a 1st century religion.

Good point.

Except it wasnt a parthenogenetic pregnancy. She was impregnated by God, like Zeus, or Poseidon, were supposed to have done.

Assuming you begin with the belief that He existed at all, the writings that describe his life and place in the culture of the time refer to His followers calling Him "Rabbi".  He also was known as the "Son" of God.   No record at all of women Rabbis at that time.  Just curious, have you found some source that makes that claim or is this just curiosity?  

No record of an unmarried Rabbi either...

I find it ironic that "God" could impregnate a human woman is stated as a "fact", while the same act, attributed to Zeus, Poseidon and other gods is "alleged"..

Apologies, but they are the same words. The poster just put the cart before the horse, methinks.

 

But I will refrain in the future.

Same words.. and if you had done the direct quote straight and then changed it in your words that would have worked. But direct misquoting is bad form. Glad you will refrain in the future :tu:
