Some questions

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Thanks for quoting from the Bible regarding the birth of Jesus. From your quotes from the Bible it appears that virgin Mary became pregnant according to the wish of God. But is it mentioned anywhere that Jesus was the SON of God? Was God his biological father, or it was mentioned just allegorically? You also believe that Jesus was God himself. So Mary was impregnated by God, then gave birth to another God (or the same God?). So God was both Mary's son and her son's father? Then who was Holy Spirit? Is he also a God, according to Christianity? Does that mean you have 3 Gods? If that is the case, then who is the supreme God?

As far as I know (I could be wrong), Jews believe in one God. If Jews and Christians are the same religion then why the number of Gods of Jews and Muslims is different?

Please don't be offended, because I actually don't know these things. I hope Justme, or any other Christian or Jewish participant will answer my questions. I sincerely want to know.
Thank you.
