Translation of the words "brother" and "cousin"


I think this debate could go on indefinitely if left only to Scripture. I find that to be a trap though (and I’m only a Seeker btw… not a Catholic). Protestants WANT you to only focus on Scripture. But there must be a reason that Church fathers elaborated on this. And that, as we know, is something to be accepted if you hold Tradition in high regard. Not just Scripture.


Cousin every well said. Hmmm
