Though God is the father of all humanity, Jesus alone is the nonogenetic son of God, because only Christ has God’s genes or genetic make-up. The familiar translation “only begotten Son” (John 3:16 NKJV, NASB) conveys this truth. When parents beget or conceive a child, they transfer their DNA to the newborn. Jesus shares God’s DNA. Jesus isn’t begotten in the sense that he began but in the sense that he and God have the same essence, eternal life span, unending wisdom, and tireless energy. Every quality we attribute to God, we can attribute to Jesus.
