Mary, the Mother of Jesus
Bible study on Mary, the mother of Jesus.

Matt. 1:18; Lk. 1:35

The Holy Spirit came upon Mary and she conceived. The Holy One who would be born was to be called the Son of God.

Matt. 1:23-25

Mary was a virgin when she conceived Jesus. She did not know a man until after she brought forth her firstborn Son.

Lk. 1:48

All generations will call Mary blessed.

Mary was favored by God to bear His Son (Lk. 1:30). All the saints are favored (i.e., blessed) by God (Lk. 11:27-28).

Matt. 13:55; Mk. 6:3; Jn. 7:3, 5, 10; Acts 1:14; Gal. 1:19

Jesus had brothers. Mary did not remain a virgin after giving birth to Jesus.

Lk. 11:27-28

The people who hear and keep the word of God are blessed, as Mary was blessed.

Christians are blessed because their works follow them (Rev. 14:13) and they have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years (Rev. 20:6). They are blessed that they may have the right to the tree of life and enter through the gates into the city (Rev. 22:14).

Lk. 8:19-21

Jesus' family (i.e., mother and brothers) is those who hear God's word and do it.

Eph. 4:11; Phil. 1:1; Tit. 1:5; 1 Tim. 3:1, 8; Heb. 5:12

The church is composed of elders, deacons, evangelists, teachers, and members (saints).

Mary does not hold an office in the church.


Jn. 1:1; 16:26; Col. 3:17; Heb. 9:15; 1 Jn. 2:1; Eph. 1:22-23; Col. 1:18

Jesus is God; He is our Mediator and Advocate. We pray to God in the name of Jesus.

Mary is not God. She is neither our Mediator, our Advocate, nor the head of the church. We cannot worship or venerate Mary. We cannot pray to or through Mary (cf. Matt. 28:18).

Also, see JESUS.
