References to Mary

16 1 6 1 None


Please note - Jesus occurs in the New Testament  949 times;
Christ 558 times & Lord Jesus Christ 340 times.

Mary occurs - 24 times.
16 of the references relate to the birth of Christ. (12 in Luke & 4 in Matthew)

It is therefore patently clear that none of the apostolic writers ever intended that we should elevate Mary  to a place where she receives hyperdulia veneration, adoration, supplication and exaltation. Had they intended to do so they would have indicated this in their writings. As you can see, they had an extended opportunity to do so spanning a lengthy period of approximately 90 years, yet they never did.

The silence of Scripture about Mary during this
Apostolic period is deafening
