Jesus Said His Mother Had Other Sons! Really?

by Steve Ray on November 20, 2009

MaryWithBaby.jpgI was confronted with an interesting argument against Mary’s perpetual virginity. The man argued that the Bible itself proves that Mary had other children. He claimed that Jesus expressly states in no uncertain terms that his mother had other sons. He said it must have been overlooked by the Catholic Church.

To read my whole response, click here.  Surprise, at the end of the article, you will discover that Mary DOES have other children!

“….and did not know her till she had brought forth her first Son. And he called his name Jesus.” Matthew 1:25

Note:(Joseph did not know her)

This is not to mean that she was a stranger.

This has been clarified to mean ‘did not have an intimate relationship with her’.

Another reference in the bible:

Now Adam knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain…. Genesis 4:1

Again, note the phrase ‘knew his wife’.

This was way past the time they he knew her (the time he was introduced to her) in the Garden of Eden, the fall of man etc.

Mary remained a virgin till the birth of Christ. There was much emphasis on her being a virgin, so that we may know that Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit (and not of human intercourse, like the rest of us).
