      Martin Luther, Founder of the Reform, Speaks on St. Mary

      Scripture does not say or indicate that she later lost her virginity . . .
      When Matthew [1:25] says that Joseph did not know Mary carnally until she had brought forth her son, it does not follow that he knew her subsequently; on the contrary, it means that he never did know her . . . This babble . . . is without justification . . . he has neither noticed nor paid any attention to either Scripture or the common idiom.

      {Pelikan, ibid.,v.45:206,212-3 / That Jesus Christ was Born a Jew (1523) } Editor Jaroslav Pelikan (Lutheran) adds:

      Luther . . . does not even consider the possibility that Mary might have had other children than Jesus. This is consistent with his lifelong acceptance of the idea of the perpetual virginity of Mary.

      {Pelikan, ibid.,v.22:214-5}

        ". . . she is rightly called not only the mother of the man, but also the MOTHER OF GOD. . . . it is certain that Mary is the Mother of the real and true God."
