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….

      • No one comes to the Father except thru the Son! No one needs to pray to a priest for Hail Marys. She is not to be worshipped or is she to carry prayers to God. He wants to hear directly from us and us alone!

        • Dear Donna,
          We do not pray to priests. Neither do we worship Mary that would be Heresy. She is a created being not diety. We merely ask Mary to pray to God for us just like we ask other Christian friends to pray for a prayer request we might have.

  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.

  7. attention BFHU: in regards to your statement that nowhere in the BIBLE DOES IT ASSERT THAT ALL PRACTICE AND DOCTRINE MUST BE FOUND IN THE BIBLE, I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THESE SCRIPTURES WITH YOU : Gal 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
    Gal 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
    Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
    Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
    Gal 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
    Gal 1:11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
    Gal 1:12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. the word gospel in the greek refers to G2097 eὐαγγελίζω
    From G2095 and G32; to announce good news (“evangelize”) especially the gospel: – declare, bring (declare, show) glad (good) tidings, preach (the gospel). 2Ti_3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

    2Pe_1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

    Dan_10:21 But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.
    the Bible says “let God be true and every man a liar” The only way as a sincere christian to know what is the truth is by the practice, doctrine, gospel, instruction, examples, and scripture of truth that the Bible teaches us as God inspired man to write it.

    • Dear Pamela,
      I am very familiar with the verses you have advised me to consider.

      1) Please note that none of these verse assert, support, or prove the Protestant dogma that all spiritual truth or truth about God must be found only in scripture. That is a tradition of men. That is a tradition of Luther/Protestantism. It is not an infallible truth of sacred scripture.

      2) Since Galatians was written in the first century, have you ever wondered what Christianity looked like at its birth? I wondered. I wondered if it was more like the Catholic Faith or more like the Protestant faith. And what I found is that it was completely Catholic. Not Protestant. You can find out for yourself by reading the Early Church Fathers. The Catholic Church has always believed in the immaculate conception of Mary (so did Luther), the perpetual virginity of Mary (so did Luther and Calvin), oral confession, the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, the Primacy of Peter, etc.

      3) What if Protestantism has “perverted the gospel of Christ?”
      What if Protestantism “preaches another gospel than that which we have preached unto you?”

      4) “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.”

      And yet does not every single Protestant believe that they are able to privately interpret scripture? I know they honestly believe that the Holy Spirit is guiding their interpretation but if this were actually true then why
      has the Holy Spirit guided Protestants to so many different interpretations that it is not ONE but fractured into thousands of denominations in contradiction to Jesus’ explicit desire that all be ONE? Jn 17

  8. Jesus never called Mary mother because He wants to connect Mary to the “woman”, in the Old and New Testament. In Genesis 3:15, The Proto Evangelium where God says He will enmity between the serpent and the “WOMAN”. That woman is Mary. It couldn’t be Eve because Eve had fallen. This passage also shows the sinlessness of Mary because of the enmity, the separation, the opposition God put between the Woman and her seed against the serpent and his seed. That means, the devil (serpent can not touch the woman and her seed. ) At the foot of the cross, He called her “woman” again and in Revelation 12:17; John 2:4; Galatians 4:4, Revelations 11:1-6. Jesus did not disrespect his mother. He wants to make that connection to all of us. Otherwise, He disrespected His own 4th commandment.

  9. Mary did not create Jesus, Jesus created Mary, and

    himself through her. Keep this in mind, all things

    were created through Jesus. He is not a created

    being, but has eternally existed. This is why Jesus

    could be referring to Mary is “Woman”, because God

    truly has no Mother, as he is not a created being

    and has eternally existed.

  10. Mary gave birth to Jesus she was a vessel to bring Jesus into the world Jesus message was no one is more important than my father

    • I agree. Mary enfleshed the Second Person of the Trinity. No one is more important than God. Thank you for your comment.

  11. Jesus never called Mary His mother but instead He called Him Woman to show that He was God in Flesh and Mary was used as a canal for Him to be born in flesh. But On the cross before dying during crucifixion on Golgotha. He introduced instead Mary to John saying” Son, here is your mother” and to Mary, He said” Woman,”here is your Son”. That is to show to the world that He was not a normal human. He is God.

    • You are correct Jesus was not just a “normal Human.” He was God-Man. Both fullly God and Fully Man. However, He was incarnated in the womb of Mary and born a baby in the flesh. Baby Jesus needed to be loved and nurtured by Mary and Joseph, His mother and foster Father. Therefore, because Jesus is God Mary is the Mother of God. Not because she pre-existed the Trinity or any such nonsense, but merely because she mothered Jesus who is God.

  12. Yes He did! Luke 2:51 and when He was on the cross and gave her to John.
