The Bible is explicit that the Holy Spirit was the Divine Agent who caused Jesus conception in the womb of Mary. This, therefore, was not a normal conception, but a supernatural act of God in planting life of His already existent Son right in the womb of Mary, with no normal conception of the male spermatozoon with the female ovum of Mary. As the Blood type of the Son of God was a separate and precious type, it is inconceivable that Mary could have supplied any of her Adamic blood for the spotless Lamb of God. The entire Child’s blood came from His father in heaven by a supernatural creative act of God. Therefore it can be claimed that Jesus Blood was without the Adamic stain of sin. Mary was just a courier. The only thing Mary had in her favour was that she was a virgin, hence proving her status as a “dispatch rider”. Mary is the most lucky and blessed, because of being `the vehicle’ for carrying Jesus, the son of God in her womb.
