The passage "she bore a son even though they had not had marital relations" is not in question and you know it. That's why you continue to ignore my question.<quoted text>
I've answered it all through this current discussion. The meaning of the passage in question is "she bore a son even though they had not had marital relations". That's how all of your protestant reformers and the next several generations of protestants understood it. That's how the Catholic Church and all the Eastern Churches have understood it for 2000 years.
If you now say it means they had relations after Jesus's birth, you'll need to explain why the Holy Spirit is telling you something different.
Again...I'm talking about Genesis
Does the word KNEW in the passages below mean that Adam and Cain had sexual relations wife their wives..YES or No is fine..thanks
Gen 4:4 Now Adam KNEW Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain
Gen 4:17 Cain KNEW his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch
***It's funny, ever other time catholics come out of the woodwork to debate topics but not a peep out of any of them on this one. lol
