Jesus NEVER called Mary His Mother


David D: 1. NOWHERE is MARY EVER ONCE venerated or prayed to ANYWHERE in the New Testament.

The one example we have of someone venerating Mary is in Luke 11 where Jesus is preaching and a woman in the crowd INTERRUPTS Jesus and heres what happened;

(LUKE 11:27-28) 27 As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, “Blessed
is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you.” 28 He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”

Jesus negated this woman’s assumption and turned the attention on the WORD OF GOD.

BFHU: Jesus never once said that God is a Trinity either. Did He use the word incarnation. Do you therefore reject the Doctrine of the Trinity and the Incarnation of the second person of the Trinity? Remember, the Protestant idea that all religious truth must be found explicitly in scripture or else it is illigitimate is not to be found in scripture alone.

David D: Jesus NEVER ONCE called Mary HIS OWN mother. Wonder why? lol

BFHU:Everything Jesus said and “did is not written because the world could not contain the books.” John 20:30 So you cannot actually KNOW that Jesus never called Mary “mother”. But what are you saying? You don’t believe Mary was the mother of Jesus?

  1. I guess I would just like to add that even though Scripture never records Jesus as saying that Mary is his mother, Scripture does say that Mary was the mother of Jesus, more than once. If you hold Scripture as the Word of God, then you HAVE to admit that God has declared Mary to be mother of Jesus.

  2. Dear Lan,
    If Mary is the Mother of Jesus, and Jesus is God, then Mary is the mother of God.

    The phrase Mother of God was coined in the 4th Century in opposition to heretics who denied the divinity of Jesus Christ.

    We do not mean by it that Mary gave birth to the TRINITY or was pre-eminent. Mary was a creature just like you and me with one difference. God chose to create her without the fallen nature bequeathed to all of us by Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve also were created without a fallen nature.

    Since God the Son would reside in her womb for nine months it is fitting that she was a pure vessel to carry Our Lord. God could have done it differently, after all Jesus would later dwell with sinners.

  3. He never called her mother because God does not want us to worship her after she gave birth to him she went on to have other children she was no longer pure after she gave birth to him we are not to worship her are pray to her she was a woman just like the rest of us that God chose to carry his son Christ she would be so upset that people worship and pray to her like they do.

    • Tammy,
      Catholics do not worship Mary.

      This is a Protestant lie about the Catholic Church. You did not start it so you have no sin for this. So you can take my word for it or else prove to yourself what catholics teach regarding worshipping Mary by researching Catholic teaching in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

      When we “pray to Mary” we are actually asking her to pray for us to Our Father. Please read–>>I Just Don’t Get Prayer to Saints….

  4. Mary didn’t just give birth to Jesus,she raised him in her house for 30 years,when Jesus called Mary woman instead of mother it was because Mary is the new eve and Jesus is the new Adam,he wanted us to realise that she was the new eve. Even though he never called her mother there are texts un the bible that refer to Mary as the mother of god for example,Luke 1:43 blessed are you among woman and blessed us the fruit of thy womb! And why is this granted me that the “MOTHER” OF MY “LORD” should come to me. Mary contributed to half the DNA of Jesus what do u all think a mother Is.

  5. t first glance, this would seem to be a very impersonal manner for Jesus to address his own mother. It should be noted, however, that Jesus uses the same term when he speaks to Mary from the Cross, saying, “Woman, behold your son.” (John 19:26) Likewise, he uses the term often when speaking to other women (e.g. Mt 15:28; Luke 22:57; John 4:21)
    For a Jewish man to refer to his mother as “woman” would not be considered rude or disrespectful, however, it would suggest a distancing between the two. This is not inconsistent with how Jesus responds in Matthew 12:48-50 when he is told that his mother and family members were outside asking to speak to him:
    “But he replied to the man who told him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother.”
    By distancing himself from his mother, Jesus makes it very clear that family ties are not what cause him to act but rather, the will of his Father in heaven.

  6. How can Jesus be God? Jesus himself prayed to his father so many times as the scriptures showes, he taught his disciples to pray for his father in heaven,Luke 11: 1-13 there are at least 14 versus in the New Testament proving that Jesus is the son of God who also has a name.
    How can anyone ignore that, was he praying to himself?
    Mary was chosen to be Jesus mother as she was also a descendant of David as the prophecy foretells in the Old Testament, Mathews 1:1, Isaiah 7:14
    Jesus taught to pray only to his father in the heavens through him.
    Jesus is the only mediator, not his mother and no other saints, the bible is very clear about this.

    Praying to Mary and other dead saints is not biblical and praying to anyone other than God is idolatry. To bow down to a statue or painting and pray to it is evil and it is forbidden in Scripture.
    Nowhere in Scripture does it say pray to dead saints. Nowhere in Scripture does it say ask dead saints to pray for you.

    1. Exodus 20:4-5 You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.

    2. Isaiah 42:8 I am the Lord (yhwh) that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

    3. 1 Timothy 2:5 For, There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus.

    4. Hebrews 7:25 Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.

    5. John 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

    The bible is clear to who really want to listen to Jesus, but those who use excuses and want to defend their beliefs on false claims would be as the book of the revelation 22:11 says 11 Let the one who is unrighteous continue in unrighteousness, and let the filthy one continue in his filth; but let the righteous one continue in righteousness, and let the holy one continue in holiness.
    Revelation 22:18 – 19 I am bearing witness to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone makes an addition to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this scroll; 19 and if anyone takes anything away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy, God will take his portion away from the trees of life and out of the holy city, things that are written about in this scroll.

    • Dear Nevart,
      Thank you for your comment but since the Bible NOWHERE asserts that all practice and doctrine must be found in the Bible alone the Catholic Church, established by Jesus Christ Himself, is not bound by the Protestant doctrine of Sola Scriptura. Sola Scriptura is not found anywhere in the Bible.

      Our God is One in three persons. Jesus did not pray to himself but to his Father. The Catholic Church does not contradict anything in Scripture including the verses you have supplied. We do not worship the saints, statues or pictures of them. That is a Protestant tradition of men. We worship God alone.
