Introduction: the worship and veneration of Mary, is one of the topics that generate more discussion between Catholics and evangelicals.But when examined under the light of the Holy Bible, and not interpreted according to human vision, but the resulting interpretation of the Holy Spirit, everything is clear.
The challenge with many evangelicals and infallible texts and biblical verses, the interpretation of theologians who approve this and other practices of idolatry, which are abominable in the eyes of God. Well Jesus said in the Gospel of Matthew: ... Wrong not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. Mt 22:29. The adoration and devotion to Mary, the light of the Bible is right or wrong? The Catholicism, to reinforce the theory that is correct, Jesus says that Mary conceived without sin, remaining a virgin until death, or maintained without sex with Joseph.We see, according to the Bible, they make mistakes when they remained virgin until she died. When Luke 1.26-38 study, we noticed that the child he opened the mother or the first that was generated in her womb was fertilized by work and grace of the Holy Spirit of God. Luke 1.26-38. This statement is correct. But according to what is written in the Bible in the Gospel of Matthew 1:25, Joseph her husband did not know; giving birth to her son firstborn, Jesus. We note that the words in quotes: by and firstborn, according to what is written in Matthew 1:25, Joseph, her husband, not to know to giving birth to her son firstborn;Jesus.
We note that the words in quotes: by and firstborn. Using logical reasoning, to the end, we must ask the question: and then she gave birth to Joseph not have known? The word firstborn must ask the question: why firstborn if they say that Mary was only a child?
These answers, even the most lay of the scholars of the Bible can restore them, if they read the biblical texts which we cite in this study!
If you do not have the answers, I will answer them! The first answer is that after the birth of Jesus, Joseph maintained sexual relations with Mary, and this union were born other children!
The second answer is that the word firstborn means first, and if the Lord Jesus was the first child of Mary, who was the second, third, fourth?
So see: when the Bible refers to Jesus as son of God, call it the only begotten, that this word means single; And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth, and we his glory, glory as of the only begotten of the Father; John 1:14.
Another reference: For God loved the world so that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believeth in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16.
The Bible refers to when Jesus son of Mary called the firstborn of the word that means the first. See Luke 2:7 ... and she gave birth to her firstborn... soIf Mary had conceived a single child, there would be a faithful record in Scripture, that Jesus was the only begotten son of Mary! Saw how easy it is to get the answers!
Who were the brothers of Jesus, and what are their names? were the disciples? were your countrymen? Were their cousins?
These are questions whose answers generate much controversy, but which are easily answered by the Bible. Some theologians insist on saying that the brothers of Jesus were his disciples, and others who were their countrymen, who were their other cousins. Also argue that the custom of the Jews of the time, was called cousins of brothers. They do this to keep the old tradition of Catholic faith doctrine of virgin Mary. They are like the Pharisees who stuck to their traditions overturned commandments of the law of God, Mt 15.1-9; Lc.7.1-11; Col.2.8.
Do not they know that anything is out of compliance with the Constitution, which is the Law Magna a country, is unconstitutional? It is so with respect to the constitution of God Bible for Christian life.Everything that transgresses is unconstitutional, ie it is mere traditions of men. They abandoned the traditions of the Holy Lyrics that they were taught by the Apostles!
See what they transgressed beyond: 2 Tess. 2:15; Ex.20.1-6 th For this reason arose among them, the believers who promoted the Protestant Reformation. (See this site with the post title).
The word of God recorded clearly, and without leaving any doubts, who were the brothers of Jesus, their names, and mentions that he had sisters, the fruit of the conjugal relationship of Joseph and Mary!
Take these biblical texts: That came his mother and his brothers and, being outside, send it. Many people were seated around him and said: look, your mother, your brothers and sisters are out there your search ... (Mark 3:31-35).See also Mt.12 :46-50 and Lc.8 :19-21.
We observed that it is not correct, what some theologians say that the brothers were the disciples of Jesus. for sure they were with him inside that enclosure, and not on the outside!
The Apostle Paul in his letter to the Galatians, cites the name of one of his brothers: After three years, then went up to Jerusalem to see me with Cephas (Peter), and stayed with him fifteen days and not seen another of the apostles, except James, the brother of the Lord. (Galatians 1.18,19).
We saw that the apostle Peter was quoted, but Paul made a point of mentioning that it also had not seen anyone, but had only seen the James, the brother of the Lord!
We also observed in these Bible verses, that Peter was not cited as the brother of the Lord, although the same country.
Now the Gospel of Matthew, the names of four brothers of Jesus: This is not the son of the carpenter? Do not call his mother Mary and his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? Not live among us all sisters. (Matthew 13:55,56).
In John we read: ... not even their brothers create it. (John 7:5). Based on these verses, we can state categorically that the disciples were not the brothers of Jesus because the disciples create it! Follow later in this study ...
Some brothers of Jesus came to believe later, what we see in Acts: Sanctum where he met Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James son of Alfeu, Simon the zealot and Judas, son of James. Persevered all these united in prayer with women, with Mary, mother of Jesus, and with his brothers. Acts 1:13:14.
What can also extract the biblical text written by Lucas, the author of the book of Acts of the Apostles, is that it clearly distinguishes the disciples of the brothers of Jesus. I refer the sentence:... with Mary, mother of Jesus, and with his brothers. The Catholicism says that it was customary at the time, the Jews called cousins of brothers, which is correct. But in case we studied, the things they read and studied previously in fact points to the rich and pure, we can safely say, without shadow of doubt that Mary had other children,fruit of the marital relationship with Joseph, and not die a virgin and theologians say the Catholics. There is no biblical quotation given by any of the apostles, which guide the mediation or ask the intersection of Mary, mother of Jesus man, in our favor. And she is not and may not be the mother of God as they say and teach Catholic theology.
Yes we can, with conviction, say as Paul said to Timothy: Because there is one God and one mediator between God and men, Christ Jesus, man, which was itself in redemption for all, that testimony should be provide in a timely manner. 1 Timothy 2:5,6.
