According to Google, Mary was 12 when she was pregnant and Joseph was the 11th son of...12.

I heard she was 13

John12:3

Parallel verse

New International Version
Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

of Jesus, Mary and Joseph
Lectionary: 17
Reading 1 SIR 3:2-6, 12-14


This is the wrong Mary you speak of. The one you are mentioning is Mary Magdelene not Mary the mother of Jesus.

Two different Mary's...... in NT.

I don't think we know what age would Mary be in the bible but I hope she wasn't too young. That would be weird if she had a child at a very young age.


The average age of Mary has been approximated between 12 at the youngest to about 16 at the VERY latest when she married Joseph, who was likely in his early 30's (some say even as old as his 40's or 50's, but I find that unlikely). The age she had Jesus is questionable, but take that up with god. God apparently made her a teenage mother.

What?
This just gets even more absurd

Sling stupid statements around like lollies at christmas

Who makes this up, where do you get this from

Please magma Carta show me some link, something, anything that justifies that statement, anything but what you read in a superman comic


I'm not here to do your research for you. It would have taken you 20 seconds to look it up yourself.

Seriously that was your source, that was where you got your beliefs from

Well done you, hope every one opens that link and reads how silly it is

Please don't do your research for me, do it for your own integrity

Wrong Mary
Wrong Joseph
And
Terrible site for linking anything that suggests evidence for your outlandish claims, assumption and baseless scripture.
What 12 to 14 year old girl would Mary a 90 year old man, women wanted children in the A and NE, they needed children for their old age, it's ludicrous, sheer insanity

It would be a funny thread if it was a joke, sincerely the worst thread I have seen on ats, ever

Worse than those that see people claim they are aliens from where ever or gods
This is just poor research and pointless point scoring for atheism

Sad thing is people will believe it, believe you

Bit like you believing that one link you linked and basing your beliefs on that

OK I have some time, I'll bite plus it's too easy.

Wrong Mary and wrong Joseph?
The first line of the article says .. .
"Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and foster-father of Our Lord Jesus Christ."
That's kind of specific. Is there another biblical Joseph that had an adopted kid called Jesus? Didn't think so.

Terrible site? Catholic encyclopedia?
If you can find a site less biased against a religion than one centred around the promotion of that religion itself then do us all a favour and make it known.

What 12 to 14 year old would marry a 90 year old man? What..In a time where being an unmarried non virgin meant you were shunned by society, treated like dirt and outcast as a whore; a 12 year old that was supposedly magically knocked up by an invisible skydaddy would have better options?

I'd be more than interested to hear whatever semi coherent, typically illogical response you can muster.

I am not going to challenge you

It's clear to me that if you can confuse the Genesis Joeseph with the Gospels Joseph and stand by that statement
That if the Mary

You know what, just no, not worth it

Please believe what you think is true, don't deny ignorance, revel in it

so 12-14 year old girls actually have a saying about who to marry in that culture? and you are never shunned from church friends and family if you fail to follow whatever silly rules that particular group of worshippers set up? your counter is that of a bafoon.

All artists that have depicted Joseph as a really old man with Jesus as a baby.

Protevangelium of James: 2nd century
History of Joseph The Carpenter: 4th century
Saint Epiphanius of Salamis: 4th century

All depicted Joseph as a really old man at the time Jesus was born.

AFAIK none of them ever worked on superman.

It doesn't surprise me that you believe artists renditions are factual accounts of the truth
Did they all look the same In those paintings, must have been lots of Joseph's

I guess if we see Picasso doing a impression of Joeseph and Jesus we would assume that they were triangle people.

Your understanding is bizzare

If you can't differentiate the two Joseph's, one from Genesis the other from the gospels
If you can't differentiate the two different Mary's, well, let that reflect on your intellect on this matter

Let that be a reflection on your intelligence

Let that be the reason I am content to walk away and leave you to spout and justify your statements

Let that indicate to anyone who has half a brain why I won't waste my time

You have fun, you enjoy the game it's just not worth it for the reasons I gave

Jeez. It's not that I'm basing my opinion on what artists paint. Clearly if an artist painted Joseph in that way there was some justification for it in their heads beyond creative license, especially as some of them were created at a time when the church was killing people for blasphemy. It also means many other credible people believed it to be true, as evidenced by the authors who wrote about it which you conveniently chose to ignore.
