Who is Mary of Nazareth?

Mary is known as one of the world’s most powerful women. Some credit her for Jesus’s first miracle, which he performed after Mary told him the wedding at Cana had run out of wine.
According to the gospels of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament, Mary was a first-century Jewish woman of Nazareth, the wife of Joseph, and the mother of Jesus. Both the New Testament and the Quran describe Mary as a virgin.

Died: After Christ died 30/33
Born: 18 years before Christ was born
Lived for 48 to 51 years of age

The first mention of Mary is the story of the Annunciation, which reports that she was living in Nazareth and was betrothed to Joseph (Luke Ch.1:26), and the last mention of her (Acts of the Apostles Ch.1:14) includes her in the company of those who devoted themselves to prayer after the ascension of Jesus into heaven.

Orthodox Christians believe in the miracle of Dormition, which means that Mary did die naturally and her soul went to heaven, while her body stayed on Earth for three days before being resurrected and taken up into heaven.

According to Christian theology, Mary conceived Jesus through the Holy Spirit while still a virgin, and accompanied Joseph to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born.

What was Mary of Nazareth real name?

We can also be fairly sure of her name: the gospels give her name in Greek as Maria, but she would have been known at home by the common Jewish name, Miriam or Mariamme. Like other women of her day, Mary would have been married around the age of 12, the onset of puberty.

There is NOTHING in scripture to support that Mary had children after Jesus. The Bible mentions that Jesus has four (half)brothers: James, Joseph/Joses, Judas/Jude and Simon.

How did God choose Mary?

She made the same mistakes, and committed some of the same sins as anyone else, but God chose to bless her by allowing her to deliver the perfect lamb. She also had the God-given strength to endure the trials that would surely go along with being the mother of Jesus.
