Mary of Nazareth As The Bible Defines Her
The Ignorant Fishermen Blog ^ | 4/8/10 | DJP I.F.

Posted on 04/08/2010 2:47:10 PM PDT by The Ignorant Fisherman

This study seeks to present from God's Holy Word what the Bible teaches about Mary of Nazareth, the young Jewish virgin that bore the Messiah, the Savior of the World. In this study we will seek to look at EVERY Bible verse found in the Holy Scriptures that pertains to Mary of Nazareth. Be sure to check out all the links for this study, for they will provide a deeper perspective into the person of Mary.

Introduction

In beginning this study, the clarifying statement should be made that the Bible, God’s infallible (reliable) and immaculate (perfect) Word, is the FINAL AUTHORITY when it comes to ALL matters pertaining to the truth of Christianity, which includes Mary (2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16).

The Lord Jesus Christ gave countless warnings to BEWARE false teachers and false teachings. And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man DECEIVE YOU (Gospel of Saint Matthew 24:4).

Saint Paul also warned us to BEWARE of false teachings and fables. Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables (2 Timothy 4:2-4).

Matthew 1:18-25 say nothing on what happened after Jesus was born. Read what is written and don’t fantacize about it.

Mary had other children

No she didn't. Every time Jesus's "brother" is mentioned by name, whe know who his mother is, and she is not Mary.

"Immaculate conception", by the way, refers to the conception of Mary, not of Jesus.

A question that has always intrigued me was
why do some Christians require goddess worship ?

The need to create something that does not exist in the Word.

24When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

It's there if you do not want to believe God's Word or not... that is your prerogative... God didn't have to state aton of info He kept it simple... He was not focusing on Mary but the Savior!

As is usual with those who are outside of Christ's Church the attacker begins with a false premise and then attacks the Church on that premise.

What “is there”?

Regarding focusing on Mary, you are the one who posted the article.

I have never seen an English New Testament that actually reads UNION were KNEW HER was in that verse. What Version did you use. I personally own several translations. Anyway it usually reads different. It means only that Joseph had nothing to do with the conception of Jesus. It implies nothing as to what happened afterward. Thats why it is stated so you knew it was the virgin woman from the Book of Isaiah prediction. Its not stating That There was sex later. That wording is used alot in the old testament. I believe in 2samuel 6:23 It reads in some translation Michal had no children until her death. Does that mean she had children after death?

An attack on the Immaculate Conception and the perpetual virginity of Mary.

The Immaculate Conception doctrine is debatable among Christians, but Mary’s perpetual virginity has always been Christian tradition. To claim that the Bible teaches against it is simply false.

The larger question, I suppose, is why some who imagine themselves Christian feel the need to be so strongly schismatic.

The First born son is written that you know that he is a Priest. Because the First born son is given into service of the Lord in the Levitical Law. Its not proof of brothers or sisters. Its really an expression phrase denotes for the Priesthood.Thats why the Gospel writers have it in there to emphasize. Since he is a priest in the order of mecizacdech.Which also explains why theres not much written from 12 to 30 because his levitical priesthood starts and ends when he is 30 to 33 years old as required. He can and is the only child of Mary. May God Bless and Guide You

Well, actually, you said..... Matthew 1:18-25 say nothing on what happened after Jesus was born

Something did happen after Jesus was born. Matt 1:18-25 But he had NO UNION with her UNTIL she gave birth to a son

No one is claiming that falsehood - not too sure why you felt the need to bring it up.
