How Old Was The Age Of Mary When She Got Pregnant

  • according to the Oxford Dictionary Bible and Wikipedia the fact is that Mary was only 11 years old and Joseph was a widower at 90 years of age. Joseph’s other grown up sons from his first marriage were living in the same house with their dad Joseph and his new 11 year old bride Mary.

    Mary’s first child was Jesus who is believed to be Gods biologically begotten son. Joseph and Mary had other children together after that. If this happened today with a 90 year old man and a 12 year old girl he would have been accused of being a Paedophile although it was very normal for girls then to get married at around 10 years of age. There must be no primary secondary or university education then and no other careers available for women and where average life span was only 30.
    This is why the Vatican today has a age of consent 12 for girls even today

How Old Was The Age Of Mary When She Got Pregnant

  1. 1. How old was the age of Mary when she got pregnant? By: Osama Abdallah How old was the age of Mary, Jesus' Mother when she got pregnant? Not only was it a custom in the Arab society to Engage/Marry a young girl it was also common in the Jewish society. The case of Mary the mother of Jesus comes to mind, in non biblical sources she was between 11-14 years old when she conceived Jesus. Mary had already been quot;BETROTHEDquot; to Joseph before conceiving Jesus. Joseph was a much older man. Therefore Mary was younger 11-14 years of age when she was quot;BETHROEDquot; to Joseph. We Muslims would never call Joseph a Child Molester, nor would we refer to the quot;Holy Ghostquot; of the Bible, that quot;Impregnatedquot; Mary as a quot;Rapistquot; or quot;Adultererquot;. According to the Priest of Saint Mary's Catholic Church: quot;Mary was approximately 14 years old when she got pregnant with Jesus. Joseph, Mary's Husband is believed to be around 36 years. Mary was only 13 years when she married Joseph. When she first was arranged with Joseph she was between 7 to 9 years old.quot; According to the quot;Oxford Dictionary Biblequot; commentary, Mary was was 12 years old when she became impregnated.
  2. 2. So if I want to be as silly and ridiculous as many of the Christians, I would respond to them by saying that Mary was psychologically and emotionally devastated for getting pregnant at a very young age. And speaking of quot;child molestingquot;, since most Christians believe that Jesus is the Creator of this universe, then why did GOD allow himself to enter life through a 12-year old young girl's vagina? Please note that we Muslims love and respect Allah Almighty, Mary, Jesus and Allah's Messengers and prophets to the People of the Book (The Jews and Christians). In other words, we Muslims would never make fun of Christianity through such childish topic like this one as many ridiculous Christians do make fun of Islam through our Prophet's Muhammad (peace be upon him) marriage to Aisha (peace be upon her) .
