- Dear Daniel,
Thank you for your endeavors in sharing with us kind words in your
short mails concerning the Gospel. I love to read them.
I was wondering, do you also have something of our fathers with
respect to the sentence in Matthew 1:25? We read:
24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord
had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son:
and he called his name JESUS.
I don't think I need to explain you the crux in these verses. It's,
of course, with regard to the assertion that Joseph did knew
Mary...after ("till/until" according to the text) Jesus was born. Let
alone the assertion that Mary brought forth other children as well;
Jesus's so-called brothers and sisters.
Thanks in advance,
