Why Jesus had to have brothers and a lot of sisters

Post by Giuseppe » Thu Nov 15, 2018 11:43 am

This is the reason, I think:
Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth

(Gen 9:1)

How can you doubt now that Jesus didn't obey to creator god (demiurge)?

Yeah, I can see it now. A young Jesus plying Mary and Joseph with candles, and massage oil, and wine. And guarding he door so they might have some privacy.

please, don't deride my point. I hope that you are not another Secret Alias. I am arguing that the Judaizers invented a pious perfect Jewish family for Jesus, and the first duty for a pious Jewish family is to have a lot of sons.

So why don't Jews have families numbering 10 - 20 kids if this so obvious?

Answer: the rabbinic interpretation - if it isn't a blessing, don't have kids. There are as many interpretations as imaginative people.

I think that the high number of sisters and brothers for Jesus is to be enumerated as another fantastic miracle, as well improbable as walking on waters, etc.

But does the fact that 'it occurred to you' mean that it is true or has any intrinsic worth as an argument or explanation?

Obviously a prediction of the great churchman Polycarp
The metric to judge if one is a good exegete: the way he/she deals with Barabbas.

Who disagrees with me on this precise point is by definition an idiot.
