The Virgin Birth and the Dysfunctional Family Members of Jesus

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Yes, I do admit that the virgin birth is in the Christian Bible.  But all of you ignore why it is spoken of in the Bible. 

Christian’s keep saying Jesus is like us and they might even quote the verse “For this reason he had to be made “Like” them, fully human in every way.  In what ways are humans like others, we all want to or have to eat, sleep, work, marry, have sex, have children, pee, poop and pass gas and have thousands of other commonalities in being human.

“Fully human in every way” negates the need for a virgin birth.  In every way is an all-inclusive statement that doesn’t allow unnatural births or lifestyles (staying single).  Jesus is like us but without sin.  He has no sin nature but He can do everything a married man does because his marriage bed is undefiled because of his marriage commitment to his wife.  His physical body comes from the family tree of Adam and Eve, which makes him fully human.  So God is not having sex with Mary Magdalene but a human Jesus is.  And if Jesus has a child that child will be sinful like the rest of us simply because he has a human created spirit put inside him for the child of Jesus is not a Temple or tabernacle dwelling place of God like Jesus is. 

The Christian leaders before the Protestant Reformation knew that church worker salaries are their main outflow of funds.  And if a priest had a wife and 4 children he will need 2 to 3 times more money to support his family.  Keeping Jesus single and asking priest to “Be like a single Jesus” and stay single will save billions of dollars in operating expenses of the church. 

The law suits against the church proves that the marriage of piety (self-righteous) married to celibacy (sexual purity) is an unholy marriage for everyone knows married males and females are less tempted and find it easier to be more righteous than individual who take the vow of celibacy for any reason.

But let us discuss the real elephant in the room that almost every Christian will ignore.  I am talking about the dysfunctional relationships between Joseph and Mary, Mary and God and Jesus and his 4 brothers and at least 2 sisters.

The Christian God commits adultery against Joseph.  Think about this, God is a “Person” who gets a female pregnant.  So in reality, when one person gets another person’s wife pregnant, that is called adultery.  Not only that but the Christian God is a dead-beat dad, in that God comes down to earth, gets Mary pregnant and then leaves town and lets the step-father raise his child (pretty slick of him). L.O.L.

Joseph and Mary aren’t really married and they have no reason to marry in those 1st 9 months (if they are not having sexual intercourse).  They are young and have raging hormones and desire marriage, companionship, sex, orgasms and children.  They primarily married for sex just like all other teenage and adult males and females do.   No one marries because they love GAWD L.O.L.    

Mary does not love Joseph and Joseph does not love Mary.  If they did, they wouldn’t defraud each other by withholding sex from each other.  A married couple abstaining from sex during marriage is grounds for divorce.  If I had a daughter and she got married and they didn’t have sex for 9 months then the marriage would be annulled and void because you have to engage in sexual intercourse for the marriage to be legitimately consummated before God or man (that is what is “Normal” with humans.

Go to any wedding and at the reception ask the bride who she wants to be the father of her first child (God or her husband).  She and her husband will either laugh or be angry for such a silly question being asked.  She will say if I have a son I want my son to be as handsome and smart as my husband and he will say if I have a daughter I want her to be as pretty and smart as my wife.  These are universal truths and only a mentally handicapped woman would want God to be the father of her child or someone who hates men will want God to get her pregnant.

Neither Joseph nor Mary can tell anyone about God being the father of her child.  Mary would be stoned for adultery if she says that Joseph isn’t the father of her child.  Mary can’t play the virgin birth trump card to validate her conception.  They both would be shamed and the laughing stock in the community and subjected to mockery or ridicule if Joseph isn’t the father of Jesus.

God would cause Joseph and Mary much less pain and emotional suffering (if a virgin birth is necessary) if God just let them get married and pass off the child with Mary and Joseph thinking Joseph is the father of Jesus (that is what the people in their community believe — isn’t this the child of Joseph and Mary).  

Gabriel appears to come across as a male chauvinist to Mary.  He says to her “You will be with child”.  He doesn’t ask her if she wants God to get her pregnant (this is an abnormal illogical request for a married woman) who is supposed to be in love with her husband. 

The parents and grandparents of Joseph and Mary want Joseph to be the father of their grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Joseph and Mary found favor before God because they had the same faith of their forefathers and mothers.  Their faith made them righteous before God and a virgin birth is of no importance concerning righteousness or being faithful before God or humans.  God promotes the ideal, that all males and females are to be virgins when they marry (not just the female).

All the women in Mary and Joseph’s family would shame Mary and be angry with her if they knew she was practicing celibacy in marriage (a very evil and unloving response to her husband).  Brothers in both families would laugh and make fun of Joseph if he said he is not sexual intimate with his wife (forever— as some Catholics teach) (or for the first 9 months—as Protestants teach).

People started worshiping Jesus after he turned 30 and not before.  His family said he is out of his mind (a lunatic) for saying what he said.  Jesus appeared to James his brother after his resurrection.  It would be very normal for the parents of Jesus to love Jesus more than their other children, simply because he was perfect, and I think James was the most hurt because Jesus appeared to his brother James after the resurrection (for he was too angry to believe or have faith in Jesus) without that visit to calm his hurts.

Jesus said, destroy this temple and in 3 days I will raise it up.  Jesus is a Temple or tabernacle not made with hands.  God dwells in that temple of flesh and no one can harm Jesus in any way.  When the oxen stumbled, Uzzah died when he touched the Ark of the Covenant for he wanted to steady and protect the Ark of the Covenant.  In that experience, God was saying that God doesn’t need any human intervention to protect God from any circumstances or mishaps in life. 

In the same way, God’s dwelling in the Most Holy Place in this “Temple of flesh” (not made with hands) we call Jesus.  God doesn’t need any help protecting Jesus from any harm (spiritual, emotional or physical for sin cannot be transmitted into his body or affect Jesus in any way).  God can move us humans out of a certain place in order to protect us.  But God residing inside Jesus doesn’t have that same problem because God can protect His human Temple without human intervention.  Jesus being the offspring of Joseph and Mary doesn’t make Jesus sinful. 

Jesus getting married and having a child doesn’t make Jesus sinful (probably Barabbas, who celebrated his bar mitzvah at 13.  Pharisee’s and Roman soldiers told Jesus to turn himself in or the son of Jesus will be crucified instead of Jesus.  Jesus and his wife love their son and it would be very logical for Jesus to take his place even though his son wasn’t guilty of insurgence, murder, robbery or any other criminal activity, just the religious leaders hiding the fact that Jesus had a son. 

Lazarus had 2 sisters Martha and Mary of Bethany (probably Mary Magdalene a righteous woman of whom Jesus married.  Before the Protestant Reformation, the church leaders demonized Mary Magdalene because they didn’t want anyone to know that Jesus was married and had a child or children by her.  When Christ the Messiah sets up His kingdom on earth then we will meet his wife and any children.


Sinful humans trying to protect Jesus

I know you believe in the future when God sets up his kingdom on earth and that everyone will be separated from his or her sin nature.  Our sins will be separated from us as far as the east is from the west.  Since God has the power to cleanse and protect us from dealing with sin in the future, then that same loving God has the power to protect Jesus from the human sin natures of Joseph and Mary.

The three Jewish youths Hanania, Mishael, and Azaria were thrown into a blazing furnace but God protected them from the deadly transfer of heat that would normally cremate their bodies.  “No harm” came to them or their clothes and they were perfectly comfortable in the furnace.  They probably didn’t even sweat in the furnace because God could keep their skin cool or cold if He wanted to.

There are no harmful bacteria’s, germs, viruses, parasites and especially no spiritual sinfulness that can be transmitted into the being and body of Jesus.  Why?  Because the same God who eliminates sin from our lives in the future, had that same kind of power 2,000 years ago.

This is a prelude action in the past showing that God’s protection of Jesus manifests the realness of God’s Glory and Power in protecting Jesus at conception onward with no possibility for sin to be where God doesn’t want it (in the body and spirit of Jesus where God makes His abode in a house of flesh) and this same protection is transferred to the rest of humanity at a future time.

In this sinful world God is either causing or allowing things to happen.  God will quarantine sin and keep it away from touching us in any way in our future existence; just like He quarantined the sins of Joseph and Mary so that them being the mother and father of Jesus could never tarnish the righteousness of God or the 100 % human Temple of Jesus

      What heresy is this? I mean Elizabeth didn’t hear it from Mary, to be sure, but knew that she was to be the mother of Jesus (Luke 1:39-44) all the same. And as for everyone else finding out well Mary sang a song about it (Luke 1:46-55) and yet wasn’t stoned for adultery.

      As for where you said…

      “Jesus and his wife love their son”

      … can you support either claim with evidence or is logic all that is required in order to discard scripture entirely? In other words citations needed and there’s US10,000 on the table if you can come up with such.

      The father of Jesus was a Roman soldier who raped Mary, so Jesus was nothing but another regular human being. 80% of the bible is FALSE! There is NO HELL! EVERYBODY goes to Heaven! Even Stalin and Hitler went to Heaven! NO RELIGION is necessary! There is NO JUDGEMENT, except for yourself, but you will still ALWAYS go to Heaven! Don’t worry, be happy!

        Citation needed.

        • Damien

          Tiberius Julius Abdes Pantera (c. 22 BC – AD 40) was a Roman soldier whose tombstone was found in Bingerbrück, Germany, in 1859.

          A historical connection from this soldier to Jesus of Nazareth has been hypothesized by James Tabor, based on the claim of the ancient Greek philosopher Celsus, who, according to Christian writer Origen in his Contra Celsum (“Against Celsus”) (Greek Κατὰ Κέλσου, Kata Kelsou; Latin Contra Celsum), was the author of an anti-Christian work titled ‘The True Word’ (Greek Λόγος Ἀληθής, Logos Alēthēs).

          Celsus’ work was lost, but in Origen’s account of it Jesus was depicted as the result of an affair between his mother Mary and a Roman soldier. He said she was “convicted of adultery and had a child by a certain soldier named Panthera”.[1] Tiberius Pantera could have been serving in the region at the time of Jesus’s conception.[1] Both the ancient Talmud and medieval Jewish writings and sayings reinforced this notion, referring to Jesus as “Yeshu ben Pantera” (Jesus, son of Pantera).

          This account is also given some credence by the passage in the Gospel of Mark when Jesus announces in the Nazarene synagogue that he is the prophesied Anointed One (the Jewish Messiah, the King of Israel who would redeem the nation from bondage. An astonished neighbor asks, “Is this not the carpenter, son of Maryam and brother of Yacob, and Yosef and Yehudah and Shimeon, and are not his sisters here with us?” And they were suspicious of him.” (Mark 6:3, Aramaic Bible in Plain English translation). In Jewish custom of the time, a man was always referred to as the son (‘bar” or “ben”) of his father. Only if the paternity was in doubt or unknown would he be referred to as son of the mother.

          Although the hypothesis is considered unlikely by mainstream scholars given that there is little other evidence to support the Pantera paternity, outside of the hostile Jewish texts, the chronological time frame of the Pantera tomb does make the proposition a fascinating intellectual curiosity since even the Gospels acknowledge that Joseph was not the father of Jesus.[2][3] But Luke 4:22 All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips. “Isn’t this Joseph’s son?” they asked. Historically, the name Pantera is not unusual and was in use among Roman soldiers.[2][4]

          • Mayhem

            A theory combined with a second hand account and a Bible passage that doesn’t name Jesus father is a credible citation to you?

            Yes Messiah’s father was uncertain, at the time of His announcement, but no Roman soldier was mentioned as an alternative.

              Betrothment was distinguished from engagement by it being acceptable for the betrothed to have sex before marriage. The reason why it was acceptable was the chance that the betrothed woman would be raped by roman soldiers.

              Abdes, by the way, is a Semitic name meaning ‘servant of God (father presumably).

              So I like most historians am just assuming it was made up and a myth.

              “Isaiah said THE ALMAH WILL CONCEIVE. An almah is a maiden. But a maiden is not a maiden unless she is a virgin. If she stops being a virgin she also stops being a maiden and becomes either a wife or a whore.”

              “An act of sexual congress between a man and a woman is against the Law of God if the act takes place outside of the bonds of marriage. But Mary was not impregnated through any sexual congress. Mary was impregnated in exactly the same manner we see depicted in Genesis 1:2″

              “And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.”

              “That is how The Light was begotten. The Spirit of God hovered or overshadowed the waters. In the Gospel account, the woman is the waters. The Spirit overshadowed her and the Son of Man was begotten.”

              Betrothment IS NOT marriage. MARRIAGE laws are NOT in effect and so not violated.

            • Mayhem

              Incorrect: betrothment is marriage before consummation. You’re thinking of “engagement” which is something different.

              You can still marry someone who was not a virgin.

              UNLESS you think that she had to be an eternal virgin obviously.

      When Christ resurrected from the dead and exited His burial cloth [the Shroud of Turin], He transformed His body into a quantum flash of light which passed through the cloth.

      At Christ’s birth, He exited His Mother’s womb by transferring His infant body into a quantum flash of light, thereby leaving His Mother a pure virgin and placing Himself in His Mother’s arms as a perfectly formed boy-child.

      That was one of the flashes of light which attracted the attention of the night-time shepherds and drew them to the stable where Christ was born.

      The above “article” — if you want to call it that — trashes the account of Christ’s birth and disparages the Holy Family.

      Who — except an idiot — could see any gain in publicly saying such profane and false things?

      Biological sex versus one’s gender identity

      A man named Bruce made the statement “I think that it is important to differentiate between one’s biological sex and one’s gender identity. About 0.6% of adults have one biological sex and a different gender identity.

      And I said:
      Hello Bruce

      I have no understanding about the ½ of 1% that have a conflict with their biological sex and their perceived gender identity. But I do know that everyone has a tendency to ignore those heterosexuals who hurt him or her spiritually, emotionally and physically of whom they know and date.

      But it seems ALL GAYS and LESBIANS claim to be born gay or lesbian which is a dishonest and self-serving perspective. And completely ignore that 99 % of them have normal to extreme hatred and fear of the opposite gender. Which is to say, ALL heterosexuals and gay/lesbians need counseling in order to cope with their life struggles with other humans made in the image of God.

      In the decades to come many millions of grown children will proclaim that they love their two mothers or their two fathers dearly; but they really, really miss NOT EVER HAVING A MOTHER OR FATHER their whole life, how sad!!! More likely your university professor daughter would be deeply saddened if Bruce was never in her life in her past, present or her future.

      Bruce, you can’t even hint on your website that most gays and lesbian have the same temptation to embrace the same social disjunction all heterosexuals are tempted to respond in a negative way to others of the opposite gender. It is no accident that 50 % of male/female marriages in the US end in divorce, so most individuals make excuses as to why they are the way they are; and ignore whom and how they were destroyed spiritually and emotionally.

      As I have said, God doesn’t really care if someone is straight or gay/lesbian. Humans created in the image of God are VERY CREATIVE just like our Creator and when relationships DON’T WORK for varying reasons WE ALL adapt. For no one will spend years, decades or a lifetime living with someone who hates and hurts them. But God would want two men or two women to commit to each other for life (if they can’t be reconciled to a mate and show forgiveness and love for that mate).

      Plus my latest essays:

      No one is born heterosexual

      All humans are made in the Image of God; therefore the center core of my being is spiritual and not sexuality (for flesh and blood will not inherit the Kingdom of God). God is masculine and feminine, for the Bible says “And God said, Let us make man in our image”… The “US” isn’t referring to God and Jesus but refers to God being masculine and feminine JUST LIKE ALL HUMANS. Humans have to be male and female because they have to reproduce through sexual intercourse.

      God doesn’t have to force me to be attracted to the same or opposite gender, spiritually or physically. I have the created masculine nature of God and I am attracted to the feminine nature of God that is spiritually and physically different from my own nature. I am a spirit being and my sexual and emotional needs ARE USUALLY MET by two different individuals.

      If I marry, mate and have a child or children I will be fulfilling the command of God to be fruitful and multiply and have my own family tree with my wife. My emotional needs are usually more met by another male who will best know and understand me, for we are both made out of the same male fabric of humanity. That is why I went to the Boys Club when I was young. I couldn’t find a mate there but I did grow to understand how I am to love God, self, and others with an understanding that I am to love people and use things.

      And when I am hurting emotionally, another male will best understand me and help me better respond to others who hurt me spiritually, emotionally or physically. The truth is, any male or female can meet my sexual needs as long as there is a lubricant and pleasurable friction but my emotional needs are best met by the same gender person; that is why people join an all maleor female group (for encouragement, comfort, and safety).

      Male and females are mentally and emotionally wired differently. Females develop extreme hatred for males when they say, “If you love me you will let me” (and they find out at an early age they are being lied to). Males can develop an extreme fear of females if they are bullied at an early age since females develop emotionally and physically faster than boys do. One time I said to myself “If I don’t ask her out, she can’t turn me down (I had no males in my life to comfort or guide me into having more positive attitudes about how to interact with the females I meet.

      God reproduces by speaking Adam and Eve and all other species into existence and all reproduction is the responsibility of Adam, Eve and every following generation (including Joseph and Mary) creating the body of Jesus. An animal’s reproductive cycle is broken when the last female doesn’t mate with the LAST MALE ON EARTH. That is why species become extinct, for God is only responsible for THE FIRST TWO of all creatures.

      The family tree of Joseph became extinct if Joseph isn’t the father of Jesus. For the grandparents of Joseph ARE NOT related to Jesus if the physical DNA of Jesus isn’t related to Adam, Eve, Abraham, Sarah, King David, Bathsheba in Joseph’s family tree. Therefore Jesus isn’t a fulfillment of the Covenant that God had with King David and Bathsheba. So if Joseph’s sperm doesn’t get Mary pregnant, then Jesus would be half-human by any definition of what it means to be human.

      A virgin birth isn’t what kept Jesus perfect, for it is the Spirit of God living in this HUMAN TABERNACLE OF FLESH who kept Jesus perfect. God doesn’t need a mere mortal Mary to keep Jesus perfect. It is amazing how all religionist believe that our Creator God has the same limitations that human parents have. We mortals can’t keep our children perfect and after they sin, we are helpless to be able to CAST OUT their sin nature from them and make and keep them perfect in the future (a pagan and Greek mythology concept ADDED TO OUR BIBLE).

      My Bible says that Jesus “Is like us in every way”, but Christians have gone the extra mile and made Jesus just like the pagan gods who are ALL VIRGIN BORN, PREEXIST THEIR CONCEPTION and their bodies ARE DIETY and can’t get married. We don’t worship the flesh and blood of Jesus, but RATHER THE SPIRIT OF GOD residing inside of Jesus. This means that Jesus can legally do anything that all OTHER MALES ON EARTH CAN DO (date, get married, experience sexual pleasure and hopefully have children.

      In our future new heaven and earth “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female. Once the last child born by God is conceived, then His family is complete and there will be no more need for any sexual union of a man and his wife.

      God is pragmatic, sensible and realistic in how to best propagate or breed all the species through sexual reproduction. In a search engine, there is a list of 15 terms dealing with gender identity. I refer to them but I don’t list them, simply because I do not want to come across as making fun of any of the 13 other classifications. The GLBT acronym specifically addresses how many genders they say the human race has, for the “B” stands for bisexual (which means that there are only two genders in the human race).

      In this 21stCentury we are witnessing the disintegration of the family unit. Everyone does what is right in his or her own eyes. Back when 95 % of the earth’s population lived in rural communities, it did take a village to raise a child (but watch out for the village idiots) LOL. Couples had large families to bring in the crop for they couldn’t afford to hire all adults to do all the work around the farm or ranch. Plus, a child’s support group was grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, cousins, teachers, religious leaders and even strangers in the community. Now, 50% of single parents might be raising their child far away from their family or extended family.

      So, I think the 15 gender identities are simply the many variations of how humans play this cosmic chess game of life; trying to balance their faith in God (that most humans have), and like all humans NOT REALLY SURE how to cope with life, or how to love and forgive self and others. And I Arthur Trafford does not claim to have the moral high ground in spirituality or emotional health. We are all guessing at what is Truth!


      P.S. I am hoping someone will rent a freeway billboard and display
      And the truth can set all of us free from the half-truth and lies added to our Bible.

      I know most Christians embrace the traditions of men added to our Bible. 300 years after all of the Apostles are dead and 1,000 years before the Protestant Reformation. Everyone needs to ask themselves the question “Why is ancient pagan priest theology and Greek mythology philosophy in our New Testament”? For these teaching pre-exist the birth of Emmanuel (God with us, our Savior and redeemer of us all; everyone made in the image of God was redeemed 2,000 years ago.
