Obviously this will have to be a hypothetical question, but as Christians believe Jesus was both fully human and fully god, if we could get a sample of Jesus' DNA do you think it would look any different from the DNA of other human beings?

If so, why?

If not, why not?

I don't think so, no.

The simple explanation is that as "fully man", the body chemistry of Jesus Christ must (I believe) be just like anyone else's chemistry, including DNA.

Also, I believe that what set Jesus apart was His spiritual identity - He said to His disciples that they would do as he did, and the Bible records that Peter once walked on water, because of his faith in Christ. That is, it is not the DNA which makes Jesus different, but His holiness, a quality given by God through faith and obedience.

If he existed, he'd have the same DNA as any human. (imo)

I think it would look exactly the same as any other human's DNA.

Well, not exactly, but you know what I mean! ;)
