Well, it's odd the way various religions handle the scriptures that talk about the word 'until' or the fact that it is written that they didn't notice Jesus wasn't with them after traveling a while, or that the words 'brothers and sisters' were used in reference to more than Jesus' disciples. And, I might mention that a Catholic approved edition of the Bible says the following (Matthew chapter 1)
"He had no relations with her until she bore a son,*
and he named him Jesus." UNTIL (no other word for explanation there). UNTIL she bore a son. No relations with her UNTIL she bore a son. Couldn't be clearer, thank God. It's no wonder, isn't it, that people were literally put to death for reading the Bible during various times. Thank goodness we're living in somewhat freer times. Thank goodness for Bible prophecies.
you jump to conclusions... This is what happens with the man made tradition of "Scripture ALONE
" it forces each person to become an expert! You are NOT
Jesus did not have any brothers... You can follow the genealogy of so called brothers in the Gospels none had Mary as their mother!!
Exodus 13:1 The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Consecrate to me every firstborn male. The first offspring of every womb among the Israelites belongs to me, whether human or animal
The “firstborn” were not given the title because there was a “second-born.” They were called “firstborn” at birth.
Jesus being “firstborn” does not require that more siblings be born after him.
I may say to you, “Until
we meet again, God bless you.” Does that mean after we meet again, God curse you
2 Samuel 6:23
: And Michal the daughter of Saul had no child to (until) the day of her death.
(Does this mean she had children after she died?)
1 Timothy 4:13
: Until I come, attend to the public reading of scripture, to preaching, to teaching.
(Does this mean Timothy should stop teaching after Paul comes?)
1 Corinthians 15:25
: For he (Christ) must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet
. (Does this mean Christ’s reign will end?)**
says,** “he will reign over the house of Jacob forever
and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”
From the cross Jesus gave his Mother to the care of John even though by law the next eldest sibling would have the responsibility to care for her. The Holy Spirit is Mary’s spouse, God has ONLY one child; Jesus! Joseph became Mary’s earthly spouse and protector as well as the protector of the child Jesus. Mary was faithful to God the Holy Spirit!
The verse is pointing out Joseph was NOT the father!
But he had no sexual relations with her before she gave birth to her son. And Joseph named him Jesus
