V 11 Mary and Joseph
The dominant master narrative about Jesus’ parents states
that Mary, a housewife, and Joseph, a building worker, were Jesus’ biological parents.
The new basic narrative about Jesus’ parents states:
Mary was not the name of Jesus’ mother. His mother’s name, like her virginity, are part of the Christian legend about the Messiah’s origin.
Mary was not the name of the women called Mary in the New Testament; at most it was their nickname.
Mary was a well-known Jewish alchemist in classical times.
