Biblical Answers to 5 Common Questions about Mary

  1. Was Mary Divine?

Luke 1:46-47 “And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.”

Matthew 1:21 “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”

Mary is recorded in Scripture as calling God her Savior. Only sinners need to be saved. Jesus is God (see John 1:1-3 and John 1:14) and came to save sinners, including Mary.

Mary was not Divine, nor is she co-redeemer with Christ. She was completely human, she was a sinner, and had to be saved, just like us.

  1. Does Mary Help People Pray?

Mary does not help people pray. That is the Holy Spirit’s job. Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

  1. Are We to Pray to Mary?

We are not to pray to Mary either. We are only to pray to God.

Matthew 6:6 “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”

  1. Did Mary Remain a Virgin after the Birth of Jesus?

Matthew 1:25 “And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.”

This verse shows that Mary did not remain a virgin after the birth of Christ.

In addition, the Bible shows that Mary and Joseph had other children after Jesus was born.

Mark 6:3a “Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us?”

  1. What Did Mary Command People to do?

The only command in Scripture that Mary gives is to do what Jesus said.

John 2:5 “His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.”

What did Jesus say to do?

Believe in Him to receive forgiveness of sins and everlasting life.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
