The scientific word is microchimerism. It is the transfer of cells from the babys body into the mothers body and the transfer of cells of the mothers body in the babys body. These cells of the baby remain in the mothers body after birth. Very interesting indeed when considering the relationship between Jesus and his mother Mary.
The microchimerism website says,
Microchimerism is the harboring of small numbers of cells that originated in a genetically different individual.
During pregnancy some cells traffic from the mother to the fetus and from the fetus to the mother. Surprisingly, a small number of the mothers cells persist in her offspring, including into adult life. And a small number of cells from prior pregnancies persist in mothers many years later. It has only recently become apparent that naturally-acquired microchimerism is common in humans.
The new scientific discovery of microchimerism informs us that some of the cells of the God-Man Jesus remained in the body of Mary. At his gestation and after his birth, Jesus left microscopic bits of his own divine cellular being inside his mother. Was Mary then a tabernacle of the Divine? Yes, not only during the pregnancy but also forever after.
Smithsonian Magazine informs us, This cellular invasion means that mothers carry unique genetic material from their childrens bodies, creating what biologists call a microchimera, named after the legendary beasts made of different animals. The phenomenon is widespread among mammals, and scientists have proposed a number of theories for how it affects the mother, from better wound healing to higher risk of cancer.
We speak of Mary being the Ark of the New Covenant. The Ark of the Old Covenant in the Old Testament contained 1) the Word of God inscribed on stone, 2) an urn of manna, and 3) Aaron the High Priests rod that budded (Heb 9:4).
Mary is the Ark of the New Covenant and in her womb was 1) the Word of God inscribed on flesh, 2) the real bread which came down from heaven, and 3) the real and ultimate, eternal High Priest.
But science now informs us that Mary was the Ark of the Covenant that carried God Himself not only for nine months but for the remainder of her existence. Mary was and indeed still is the Ark of the New Covenant and the repository of the Divine.
What other woman has this relationship with God in the flesh? She is the beloved daughter of the Father, the chosen mother of the Son, and the chaste spouse of the Holy Spirit. What other woman has such a relationship with the Trinity?
And now that science has discovered microchimerism, we realize now that May is perpetually the tabernacle of the Divine. As a Protestant, I thought Mary was non-essential and not important. Catholics made too big a deal of Mary. Boy, was I wrong. I love being a Catholic!
We only worship God, but interestingly Mary was the only physical human connection with Jesus.
As the blood of a child always comes from the father, so Jesus’ blood came from the Father via the Holy Spirit whose seed Jesus was/is.
Jesus was all God and all man. Only God could do that.
Fooled the heck out of Satan.
Amazing. God is truly amazing. He’s the Victor!
Did Jesus inherit any of his father’s DNA?
Jesus’ half brothers and sisters may have benefited from this.
So the siblings of Jesus must have had superhuman skilz.
How ‘new’ is this discovery?
Jesus has no biological siblings.
” Mary was and indeed still is the Ark of the New Covenant and the repository of the Divine.”
Ya gotta just love Catholics.
They sometimes are more like Mormons.
Mormons consider Joseph Smith more Holy than Jesus and
Catholics consider Mary more Holy than Jesus.
Sorry, Mary “just happened to be” the woman God chose to bear His Son.
He never meant for HER to be WORSHIPED! Only The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are to be worshiped.
Worshiping ANYONE else is a grave SIN!
Its mostly a matter of connecting existing science to biblical accounts.
In this case it is one more aspect of the mystery of the incarnation which the Church has believed for centuries explained more clearly.
Early scientists/philosophers who were theologians always speculated that Mary had to have had a special relationship to Jesus because in general it was believed that women always contributed from their own body towards the generation of a human being.
>just happened to be<
You just happened to be here.
You are not special to God. God never planned for you.
Or just like God has planned purposely for everything, He planned for you to be in the world for a reason, just as He planned for Mary to be in the world for a reason.
That’s nice, but you didn’t answer the question.
Praying to Mary? What does the Bible teach?
“Jesus has no biological siblings.”
THAT is strictly a Catholic opinion that ignores/changes scripture.
They were both of the house of David
Not a change in scripture. You are misreading text.
