Some verses which show God became human

Jesus was born with God as HIS father. As such, Jesus was born without sin. He did not have a sin nature – which comes through the father.

Luke 1:30-35

30 The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; 33 and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.” 34 Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?” 35 The angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God.

We know the sin nature comes through the father because sin entered the world through Adam, even though Eve sinned first.

Romans 5:12

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned

But though The Son was God, He emptied himself and took on the form and likeness of man.

Philippians 2:5-7

5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.

Christ knew no sin. Christ was without sin.
2 Corinthians 5:21

He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Hebrews 4:15

For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.

Paul recognized Jesus was a man.
1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus
John recognized Jesus Christ was born of God.
1 John 5:1
Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and whoever loves the Father loves the child born of Him.
John called people deceivers if they did not recognize Jesus had been human.
2 John 1:7
For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist
So yes, Jesus Christ was the Son of God quite literally – God was His Father, and Mary was his mother. He was God made manifest as a man, in the flesh.
