“As far as this life is concerned, he [Jesus] was born of Mary and of Elohim; he came here as an offspring of that Holy Man who is literally our Father in heaven. He was born in mortality in the literal and full sense as the Son of God. He is the Son of his Father in the same sense that all mortals are the sons and daughters of their fathers.”

Bruce R. McConkie, The Mortal Messiah – Book 1 (Salt Lake City, UT: Deseret Book Company, 1979), 330.
