How do non-Catholics who believe Mary had other children…that Jesus had brothers and sisters, interpret Acts 1:15?
13 When they entered the city they went to the upper room where they were staying, Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James son of Alphaeus, Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James.
14 All these devoted themselves with one accord to prayer, together with some women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.
15 During those days Peter stood up in the midst of the brothers (there was a group of about one hundred and twenty persons in the one place). He said,
16 “My brothers, the scripture had to be fulfilled which the holy Spirit spoke beforehand through the mouth of David, concerning Judas, who was the guide for those who arrested Jesus.
Acts 1:15 shows Jesus had 120 “brothers”? Even if I subtract all the people mentioned in line 13, one could say that there were at least 100 “brothers” of Jesus. And, this does not even account for his “sisters”. Given that biology produces approximately the same number of both sexes, I assume that there were about 120 sisters too.
So all told Jesus had 240 brothers and sisters??
Mary had 200 to 240 children?
Where we’re all the sisters?
Non-Catholic believers that Jesus had brothers and sisters, please help me understand this scripture verse.
