I believe the confusion about the nature of God the Father and the Son comes because people assume that Jesus had the same nature as fallen man. This is a fallacy. Christ IS GOD and therefore has ONLY the nature of God which is HOLY. He was born OF THE HOLY SPIRIT not fallen man. Luke 1:35 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.
This verse CLEARLY states that Jesus was born HOLY. He was not born with the sinful nature of fallen man.

Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the LIKENESS of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

In the New Testament, the word for holy is “hagios” and means set apart, reverend, sacred, and worthy of veneration.” This word applies to God because GOD HIMSELF is totally other, separate, sacred, transcendent, reverend, and SET APART FROM EVERY CREATED THING. (http://www.patheos.com/blogs/christiancrier/2014/05/24/what-does-the-word-holy-mean-bible-definition-of-holy/)

Since GOD IS A SPIRIT (John 4) according to Christ Himself, either Christ is NOT GOD or He is the SPIRIT (GOD) made flesh (1 Timothy 3:16) for the purpose of dying for all of mankind. HE ALONE IS HOLY. (Revelation 15:4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for THOU ONLY art holy:) There are not, therefore, two persons that are HOLY according to scripture. God ALONE is HOLY.
The flesh body of Jesus was created in MARY by the Holy Ghost who therefore is His Father. But the flesh is the image (Hebrews 1:3) of the Father since all of the fulness of the Godhead (THE HOLY SPIRIT) lived in Jesus bodily, that is in the flesh. Colossians 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; That's why Jesus could tell Phillip in John 14 that the Father was IN HIM and He was IN the FATHER because the FATHER IS THE HOLY SPIRIT. Without the Spirit of God, who is the Father of Jesus, the flesh body of Jesus would die. (James 2:26 So as the body without the spirit is dead.....)
Could Jesus actually proclaim what Paul did when Paul said in Romans 7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members? Was Jesus captive by the law of sin, God Forbid. If Christ is God then He cannot be tempted with Evil according to James 1:13 ....for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

Jesus is the VERY IMAGE of GOD in the LIKENESS of SINFUL FLESH but HE is HOLY, set apart from His creation. That is why He had to be born without an earthly Father so He could adorn the nature of God Himself and not sinful man. The FATHER, the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT are ALL one in the body of JESUS.
