The following is from J. Keir Howard’s book “Medicine, Miracle and Myth in the New Testament” (p. 52):
“…for the term ‘virgin’ was used in Jewish parlance simply to designate a girl who was considered too physically immature to conceive.”
What makes this more shocking is that Howard is specifically referring to Mary, the mother of Jesus (peace be upon him), but it could also apply to the “virgins” of Numbers 31:18. So, we have further proof to demolish the lies of Cerbie/Paulus and his watered-down, secularist interpretation of the Bible. Based on the above, Howard suggests that Mary was pre-pubescent!
Hat-tip to brother Tony for this reference! Keep up the good work!
