The Family of Jesus Christ
|Description||Was Jesus born 2002 years back? Was h-e born in year zero? |
The initial year AD was 1 - therefore, Jesus could not have been born in year zero. The idea of zero was invented much later.
Numerous famous minutia in-the gospels suggest that Jesus must have been born before 4 BC.
Like, He was believed to have been created throughout the reign of King Herod, who died in 4 BC.
Jesus' mother, Mary, was a virgin before it gave birth to him - and remained a virgin in perpetuity. Here is the official (Catholic) doctrine. Dig up extra resources on our related essay - Hit this web site: the link.
But Jesus had sisters and brothers - loads of siblings.
E. Paul wrote (Galatians 1:18-19 ):
'Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and house with him fifteen days. But of the other apostles saw I none save your self James the Lord's brother.'
This identical James can also be the daughter of 1, Alpheus! All the brothers of Jesus would be the sons of the Alpheus whose wife's name was... Mary!
'And h-e [Joseph] knew her [Mary] maybe not until she had brought forth her first-born son...'
First-born meaning there have been other people who used (second-born, third-born, etc.)
'Is this perhaps not the carpenter's son? Isn't his mother called Mary? And his brethren, James and Joses and Simon and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us'?
Mark 6:3 (talking about Jesus ):
'Is this perhaps not the carpenter, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Judas, and Simon? And are not his sisters here around'?
Based on both Matthew and Mark, three girls stood by the cross in the crucifixion: Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and of Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's kids (Salome). Salome was Virgin Mary's sister and, therefore, Jesus' maternal grandmother.
David (an eyewitness to the activities) recognizes Mary as Jesus' mother - but separates her from Mary, spouse of Alpheus and two other women (for a total of four women as opposed to three ):
'Now there stood by the cross of Jesus (1) his mother, and (2) his mother's sister, (3) Mary the wife of Cleophas [Alpheus], and (4) Mary Magdalene.'
Mary, wife of Alpheus, could not have been the sister of the Virgin Mary, since the Church would have us believe. For alternative interpretations, please consider taking a look at: james barbour information. In Jewish households, two sisters cannot share the same name.
David shows that Mary, mother of Jesus wasn't the father of Joses and James, spouse of Alpheus, and Judas, and Simon, who are recognized as the brothers of Jesus by all one other gospels!.
