That Christ’s ‘Conception’ was Analogous, but Not Precisely the Same as Normal Human Conception
as quoted in Heinrich Heppe, Reformed Dogmatics, Person of Christ, section 12, p. 425
“(2) Of the seed and blood of the V. Mary was formed Christ’s flesh, the H. Spirit adding quickening force to this material. Of course the seed and blood of the virgin Mary also possessed their own vital and animal spirits, as other men’s seed usually has. But these were by no means sufficient for the plastic or formative force of the foetus in question. And so the H. Spirit’s extraordinary shadowing and quickening were addded: whence also it is said to have been conceived of the H. Spirit, a phrase and manner of speaking which is human and metaphorical, not strictly appropriate.
(3) Thus Christ’s incarnation was at once ordinary and extraordinary: ordinary as regards the material supplied by the V. Mary, extraordinary as regards the formative force added to this material.”
