...across the room to share a song....

A friend forwarded this song to me today and I enjoyed it so much I thought I'ld share it with you!

On My Father's Side

Written by The Village Singers

Just a young boy in the temple one day

Shared with the Doctors, they were so amazed!

Never had they seen one so young speak so swift;

They asked Him many questions, the conversation went like this:

What's your name son?

On my mother's side my name is Jesus

but on my Father's side they call me Emmanuel.

How old are you?

On my mother's side I'm twelve years

but on my Father's side I've just always been.

Where you from?

On my mother's side I'm from Bethlehem

but on my Father's side it's New Jerusalem.

What's your plan?

On my mother's side I'll be crucified

but on my Father's side in three days I'll arise

and I'll sit by my Father's side.

He was the Son of God yet the son of man

And I can't help but wonder how Joseph must have felt

Through an open door that day he heard his son reply

you see I'm the King of Kings that's on my Father's side.

Hi Iriske,
Thank you for your question and interest in the song I posted.
Jesus is the Son of God. His mother was from Nazareth, a village in Galilee. She had never slept with a man and yet she was pregnant.
For the answer to your question I would like to refer you to the BIBLE to the book of Luke:
GOD sent an angel to Nazareth to a virgin named Mary who was engaged to Joseph. The angel told Mary "Don't be afraid for you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son and you will name Him Jesus. He will be very great and wll be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David. And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never end." Mary asked the angel "But how can this happen? I am a virgin." The angel replied "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God."
The song I posted is saying that on the one hand Jesus is fully human because of who is mother was, but on the other hand He is God's Son who has always been because He is infinite.
I hope that helps?
