  • Even if that was true and we could clone Jesus it wouldn't be Jesus. Jesus was only 1/2 mortal/human...whatever. His clone might look like Jesus looked like, but would not not have the powers that Jesus had, because it would only be a copy and not the SON OF GOD. Would it have a spirt/soul...yes, but again it wouldn't be Jesus Christ. Interesting question though.

  • How on earth could they prove that out of curiousity? You can't prove someone's DNA without the mother and father's DNA, unless you already HAVE a known sample of DNA frmo that person.

    I believe in Jesus Christ, but do not believe they'll ever have DNA evidence of Him.

  • I think whats shes talking about is the discovery of graves that bore the names Jesus, Mary & Joseph that were from the same time period Jesus existed. It was on naked archeology but the archeologist said those names were soooooooooooooo common back then that it isnt their grave but yes they could get dna off the remains there.

  • Well Jesus was resurrected so his body wouldn't be here on Earth and I'd doubt they could prove that something was his DNA unless it was right off his body.

  • Just because you "clone" someone, doesn't mean it's the same person. Someone could clone me right now and the clone may look like me, but may be a completely different person.

    Besides, how would they even know for sure it was Jesus' DNA? There wouldn't be anything to compare it to.

  • The only way they could get His dna is if the Shroud of Turin is really His burial cloth, but there's no way to definitely prove that one...
