Discussion for Matthew 13:55

  • Raymond on Matthew 13:55
    If Mary had other children, then why did Jesus tell His mother, while he was on the cross, "Behold your son? " And why did he tell John, "Behold your mother? " If I was a son or daughter of Mary, or a brother or sister to Jesus, I 'd be upset, that my brother ignored me, and gave my mother to someone else to take care of her. I believe the brothers and sisters the Scriptures is talking about, are Jesus ' cousins. A lot of societies, even today, refer to their first cousins as brothers and sisters.
  • Charlie on Matthew 13:55
    Thankfully only God knows and it really doesn t matter to you and I And Jesus s response to a similar question in Matthew 12 49 bears this out when He say these are my brothers and sisters In other words it really isn t important to Him whether He has brothers or sisters but it does matter who believes in Him and has salvation
  • Bob on Matthew 13:55
    jesus had brothers and sisters. this means mary was not a virgin after jesus was born. this means catholic doctrine that mary was always a virgin is false
