it has been stated that mary was a unwed mother and I have read some of the feedback on the subject but remain confused.
when Mary was being treid by the priests they stated that she
could be condemmed for adultery or blasphemy. Joseph pleaded with the elders and the high priest said that mary wwas legally and lawfully his wife but what about blasphemy. Asked that he take the flogging for himself and mary which he did.
If they were not married how could they even be chared with
I also question why the lord informed her that she would be
the mother of jesus before she met the requirements of jewish law for marraige or had she already?
