Don't put me in that category.

Elder Epley might have a similar view to Vaughn's.
Mary furnished what ALL women furnish in conception and God furnished what ALL men furnish in conception what is complicated about that. Mary was his Mother contrary to what Branham and Teke says. The Bible clearly states she was his mother. The linage is traced from her to Adam.

conceive

Gennao
Phonetic Spelling

Definition

1. of men who fathered children
1. to be born
2. to be begotten
1. of women giving birth to children
2. metaph.
1. to engender, cause to arise, excite
2. in a Jewish sense, of one who brings others over to his way of life, to convert someone
3. of God making Christ his son
4. of God making men his sons through faith in Christ's work

Now, the verse about Elisabeth:

Lu 1:24
And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying,

conceive

Sullambano
Phonetic Spelling
sool-lam-ban'-o Verb
Definition

1. to seize, take: one as prisoner
2. to conceive, of a woman
1. metaph. of lust whose impulses a man indulges
3. to seize for one's self
1. in a hostile sense, to make (one a permanent) prisoner
4. to take hold together with one, to assist, help, to succour

It's clear that there is a difference in the two definitions. I find that problematic in what you are claiming.
You find anything that makes sense problematic, H.O. That's why you and I have problems getting along much of the time. If the Bible said "Fat meat is greasy", you'd look for a way to show it wasn't saying that fat meat is greasy. Those are just two words that mean pretty much the same thing. Just like I could say a woman got pregnant or say she had conceived.

Branham said Mary was NOT his mother.

Thanks. I'm glad you provided scripture. Alas, I was hoping for a different outcome when what I'm about to show you.

Hareh
Phonetic Spelling
haw-reh' Noun Feminine
Definition

1. pregnant


I concede that she was indeed pregnant. But this still doesn't prove He was from her seed.

Then again, as I've said from the beginning, it doesn't matter to me if He was or wasn't. He's still God, He's still my Savior, and I'm still His child.

I believe Jesus was conceived in her of the Holy Ghost, as the Bible says.
I already posted the scripture, H.O. Read it for yourself. He told her THOU SHALT CONCEIVE, not THOU SHALT BE AN INCUBATOR.

No. It's traced from Joseph to Adam...twice. Why is that? I thought there was a passage where He was traced through Mary, but I can't find it now.
