Title: The Conception of Jesus (Luke 1,35)
Author(s): KILGALLEN, John J.
Volume: 78 Issue: 2 Date: 1997
The Christological affirmation in Luke 1,35 is to be understood by integrating together three elements of the Lucan text: the paternity of God (especially considering the physiology of the day), the virginity of Mary, the physical birth of Jesus. This profound Christology is meant to illuminate both the description of Jesus given in vv. 31-33 and the eventual person described in the rest of Luke-Acts.
