James, brother ?

James, brother ?

Brothers and sisters

Can someone please help me with James being the brother or half-brother of Jesus?
Mary having a second child?

With biblical proof (I know there's a verse in Matthew, I forgot where) and some explanation please.

It's been confusing me for a long time :'( :(:( :confused:ahh:confused:

Blessings,
your brother Ramsey
 
Here it is:

Matthew 12:46-7 (NLT)

As Jesus was speaking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, asking to speak to him. Someone told Jesus, “Your mother and your brothers are outside, and they want to speak to you.”
Mark 3:31-2 (NLT)

Then Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see him. They stood outside and sent word for him to come out and talk with them. There was a crowd sitting around Jesus, and someone said, “Your mother and your brothers are outside asking for you.”
 
that's too simple :p yet it's true and makes sense LOL.

It was just hard for me to admit that in my head but suddenly it's not hard lol thanks :)

The scripture declares that Joe didn't know Mary in the biblical sense until Jesus was born, It was a quite natural thing for a sweet little Jewish girl to have many children and they believed that to be a blessing from God. He would be Jesus half brother though- the same mom but a different Father as Jesus came from , was and always will be God.


Mat 1:24 And Joseph, being roused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took his wife,
Mat 1:25 and did not know her until she bore her son, the First-born. And he called His name JESUS.

Of course that was the timing. Jesus was born first. Thanks.
 
What does HMS mean :S ?

By the way I know you made a mistake but I didn't even think it could be 3 LOL, I was at work and in a rush so I couldn't focus on which you meant :p

Thanks for these verses :)

I feel better now about all of this :)

Thanks also Larry for that short information concerning Jewish girls, it has also helped me accept this.
 
Thanks a lot for this info really. I'm actually using it on someone who believes that Mary was always a virgin (kind of like me :p but different). Ehem. :p
God bless!
