Hello all, I was wondering if there are some folks here who edit Wikipedia articles could review the current Wikipedia article on Jesus, specifically on his early life section. There are two sources cited that some editor has used to state in the article that the Catholic view that Jesus did not have biological brothers or that the biblical word itself means kin or cousins not necessarily brother is debunked:
“Some early Christian writers, concerned that mention of Jesus’ brothers and sisters contradicted the doctrine of the perpetual virginity of Mary, argued that these represented either older children of Joseph by a previous marriage, or that the reference was actually to “cousins”. Both interpretations are discounted by modern scholars.”
Neither book quoted seems to assert that and it should be challenged, my problem is I just do not have the spiritual or physical energy to engage in any type of editing on Wikipedia that is likely to be long drawn out and frankly a spiritual warfare right now but I could help with suggestions or background on processes. I am not yet a member of the church but I have come from a protestant upbringing and I know this doctrine is used to bash Catholics which is why I am concerned.
