I was asked recently to provide Scripture evidence tha supports Jesus/Yahusha as the Son of God. This was asked because somone else was debating His Divinity. I will be discussing in this study Greek words and archeological evidence that supports Jesus was indeed The Lord God's Son.
And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
Let us first back track to Luke 1:30 & 1:31
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour (G5485) with God.
Favour- G5485- χάρις cháris, khar'-ece; from G5463; graciousness (as gratifying), of manner or act (abstract or concrete; literal, figurative or spiritual; especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life; including gratitude):—acceptable, benefit, favour, gift, grace(- ious), joy, liberality, pleasure, thank(-s, -worthy).
Biblical Outline of G5485 (For more indepth study on grace, see my post Grace is not what you think it is)
that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness: grace of speech
good will, loving-kindness, favour
of the merciful kindness by which God, exerting his holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Christian faith, knowledge, affection, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues
what is due to grace
the spiritual condition of one governed by the power of divine grace
the token or proof of grace, benefit
a gift of grace
thanks, (for benefits, services, favours), recompense, reward
And, behold, thou shalt conceive(G4862) in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
Conceive-G4862- συλλαμβάνω syllambánō, sool-lam-ban'-o; from G4862 and G2983; to clasp, i.e. seize (arrest, capture); specially, to conceive (literally or figuratively); by implication, to aid:—catch, conceive, help, take.
To better understand what conceive means we need to look at G2983 and G4862.
G4862- σύν sýn, soon; a primary preposition denoting union; with or together (but much closer than G3326 or G3844), i.e. by association, companionship, process, resemblance, possession, instrumentality, addition, etc.:—beside, with. In composition it has similar applications, including completeness.
G2983- λαμβάνω lambánō, lam-ban'-o; a prolonged form of a primary verb, which is use only as an alternate in certain tenses; to take (in very many applications, literally and figuratively (properly objective or active, to get hold of; whereas G1209 is rather subjective or passive, to have offered to one; while G138 is more violent, to seize or remove)):—accept, + be amazed, assay, attain, bring, × when I call, catch, come on (X unto), + forget, have, hold, obtain, receive (X after), take (away, up).
What this passage is saying is this: The Holy Spirit is captured in Mary's womb via possession or instumentality. Mary was used as a means to an end. The end being captivity by satan, captivity of generational curses. This Means to an end is The Messiah!!
the fact or quality of serving as an instrument or means to an end; agency. "a corporate body can act only through the instrumentality of human beings"
a thing that serves as an instrument or means to an end. plural noun: instrumentalities
And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come (G1904) upon (G1909) thee, and the power(G1411) of the Highest (G5310) shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing (G40) which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

The Son-G5207- υἱός huiós, hwee-os'; apparently a primary word; a "son" (sometimes of animals), used very widely of immediate, remote or figuratively, kinship:—child, foal, son.
son of man, symbolically denotes the fifth kingdom in Daniel 7:13 and by this term its humanity is indicated in contrast with the barbarity and ferocity of the four preceding kingdoms (the Babylonian, the Median and the Persian, the Macedonian, and the Roman) typified by the four beasts. In the book of Enoch (2nd Century) it is used of Christ.
used by Christ himself, doubtless in order that he might intimate his Messiahship and also that he might designate himself as the head of the human family, the man, the one who both furnished the pattern of the perfect man and acted on behalf of all mankind. Christ seems to have preferred this to the other Messianic titles, because by its lowliness it was least suited to foster the expectation of an earthly Messiah in royal splendour.
Of God-G2316- θεός theós, theh'-os; of uncertain affinity; a deity, especially (with G3588) the supreme Divinity ; figuratively, a magistrate; by Hebraism, very:—X exceeding, God, god(-ly, -ward).
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God G2316 with us.
