This isn’t every reference to “brother(s)” or “brethren” in the Bible, but it’s enough to prove that the use of the words “brothers” or “brethren” doesn’t necessarily indicate “blood brothers” at all. This is true is because neither Hebrew nor Aramaic have words for “uncles,” “nephew,” “niece,” “step-brother,” “step-sister,” etc. All were referred to as “brother” and “sister,” which were translated into Greek as adelphos or adelphe.

So these ignorant humans had no way to identify between a distant relative and a blood brother, or sister...Somebody's pulling your chain...And you're falling for it...

And then you copy and paste miles of words by your experts that are supposed to appease the simpletons who are told and believe they themselves can not understand the scriptures ...

Luk 1:36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.


Mar 6:4 But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.


All were referred to as “brother” and “sister,” which were translated into Greek as adelphos or adelphe.

HaHaHa...Why isn't Mary's cousin Elizabeth referred to as Mary's sister???

You apparently have no clue why non relatives of Jesus were called brothers/ sisters and that not all relatives were called brothers/sisters...

You guys are so gullible...A little bible study with some belief in the pure words of God will clear up all of those fallacies and fantasies of your religion...

Relax! It's a belief as beliefs go! It's always been in the history of Christian faith for two thousand years. Stop getting personal. If You think you figured it out from so called scripture only view that's your prerogative.

But remember the title Essays for Lent. Do you believe in Lent. It basically for Lenten observers but it is an open thread too.

There are civil ways to communicate without getting into the wrong personal words.

Brother and sister were also used like today too. Brother of Jews. Brother of Christ. Brother of humanity.

Freeper Cheers
