Was Mary’s mother a Levite?
Question: Regarding necessary inferences in the New Testament: Fact: Mary and Elisabeth are cousins. Fact: Elisabeth had to be a full-blooded Levite in order to marry a priest. (Zacharias) Fact: Mary’s father was of the tribe of Judah. What would be wrong with making a “necessary inference” and infer that Elisabeth’s mother and Mary’s mother…Read More
Was Mary the mother of God?
Question: I do not recite Hail Mary nor do I agree with it. But I talked to a person and we came to the topic of Hail Mary. I pointed out that “Mother of God” is never seen in the Bible and expressed an inappropriate meaning. He stated that Elizabeth called Mary “mother of my…Read More
Can you give me more insight into Mary’s sister?
Question: The Bible talks about Mary having a sister who is the wife of Clopas whose name is also Mary. The Bible states that this Mary had kids and in an article that you wrote you stated her kids were James and Joses. But when we look at Matthew 13:55, it says that James and Joses…Read More
Did Mary lead prayers? Did people receive all the gifts of the Spirit?
Question: Thank you for taking my questions. We were discussing the upper room Wednesday night. Acts 1:13-17 mentions that Mary, Jesus’ mother, and other women were present. We were trying to determine if Mary herself was praying while all the people were there. I know some women prophesied back then. My option is she was…Read More
Why is it so important to you that Mary had other children? What difference does it make?
Question: I have always been puzzled why the members of the church of Christ are so adamant that Mary, the mother of Jesus, had additional children with her husband, Joseph. I know the Catholic teaching is that Mary was a perpetual virgin; why does it matter to the church of Christ if she had other…Read More
Why is it that there is no contribution of Mary’s in the books of the Bible?
Question: What happened to Mary after the death of Jesus? Why is it that there is no contribution of Mary’s in the books of the Bible? She should be closer to God than all other disciples after the death of Jesus. Why do we have many versions of the Bible? When God does not change,…Read More
Did Mary’s intercession advance the hour Jesus showed he was the Messiah?
Question: Catholics say that according to John 2:1-11, the mother of Jesus not only interceded but thanks to her intercession, Jesus Christ advanced the hour to show (to manifest) his glory and He was the Messiah. Please address the following concerns: Is that true that thanks to Mary intercession, Jesus advanced the hour to show…Read More
How could Jesus be sinless when he was born of Mary?
Question: As Mary was the mother of Jesus, she was also, like all of us, a descendant of Adam and Eve. Even though Mary was a virgin, she was in human flesh as Adam and Eve and of sin nature. How can it be said Jesus was without sin after having come into the world…Read More
If Jesus had brothers and sisters, why did he give the responsibility of Mary to his disciple John?
Question: Since Jesus had brothers and sisters (Mark 6:3), why would the disciple John be given apparent responsibility for Mary, the mother of Jesus in John 19:25-27? Wouldn’t it seem better for Mary to be cared for by her own children? This would be particularly so because two of them, James and Jude, apparently wrote…Read More
