    New wine bursts wine skins.That doesn't happen with bottles. What happened to the original wine skins.

    Joe ... The Word of God does not come out and say who these people are. Matthew, James and Judas Lebbaeus Thaddaeus are the sons of Alphaeus. Mark 2:14, Matthew 10:3 James and Judas are also The Lord s brothers. How can this be? These can only be both Jesus brothers and the sons of Alphaeus IF Mary married Alphaeus, who is Cleophas, which Mary DID! John 19:25
  • Joe
    You may be correct, BUT please provide chapter and verse to support your points. Unless you can show me the scripture: I can only believe the scripture - nothing else.
  • Ann Hering
    James, the Lord s brother, and his brother Judas, and Matthew are all the sons of Alphaeus. Mary, Jesus mother, remarried after Joseph died to Joseph s brother, Alphaeus, according to Leviate marriage when a brother died without a son, it was the brother s duty to marry his brother s wife to provide his brother a heir. The marriage at Cana was the marriage of Mary to Alphaeus Cleopas .

    There are two possibilities either Levi
  • JP
    Tonya Clapp, Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the sons of Alphaeus. The way I see this, All of this men were brothers and there father was Alphaeus. You will notice that the word son in Mark 3 chapter is in italics should read sons not son.
