    Bump....Perhaps moderators can move this to the new Mariology board? Thanks :wave:

    Did Mary Know Jesus was the messiah?


    I would like to ask...did Mary, the mother of Jesus, know Jesus was the messiah? If so, from what point? When did she know?

    (Non-Christians...while you can partisipate in this thread...you might prefer to hold off until after I get responses and pose my secondary question.)

    Why would you want a thread that has been inactive for 2 years to be transfered to this forum?

    While I won't move the whole thread, I will move the bumps and my response to Mariology. I hope that will be a decent compromise...

    Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
    Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus.
    He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father, and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end."
    But Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I have no relations with a man?" And the angel said to her in reply, "The holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.

    If an angel appeared to you, then you became pregnant without having relations with your husband, what would YOU think?

    I do not know if Mary knew that Jesus would be both totaly Man and God, but the jews were expecting the Messiah for a good bit of time, so I think she knew He was the Messiah. She might have known when the Angel told her she was with child, if not then she knew before she went to her cousin Elizabeth, because Elizabeth called Mary the "Mother of my Lord" and Mary did not refute the that claim

    you have to think, she was around 14 when she became pregnant, it might have taken some time for this to sink in, being such a young person with so many concerns about being pregnant before she was with her husband
