Some Objections to Continued
There are some very common
objections to the belief that Mary remained a virgin after the birth of Jesus. The first objection considers the "brothers"
And “sisters” of Jesus from the
Matthew 12:46-50; Mark 3:31; Luke
While he was still speaking to the crowds, his mother and
his brothers (adelphoi)
appeared outside, wishing to speak with
him. (Someone told him, "Your
mother and your brothers (adelphoi) are standing outside, asking to speak
with you.") But he said in reply to the one who told him, "Who is my mother?
Who are my brothers
(adelphoi)?" And stretching out his hand toward his
disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and
my brothers (adelphoi). For whoever does
the will of my heavenly Father is my brother (adelphos), and sister
(adelpha), and mother."
Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother
James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters (adelphai)
here with us?
