The case of Mary the mother of Jesus comes to mind, in non biblical sources she was between 11-14 years old when she conceived Jesus. Mary had already been "BETROTHED" to Joseph before conceiving Jesus. Joseph was a much older man. therefore Mary was younger than 11-14 years of age when she was "BETHROED" to Joseph. We Muslims would never call Joseph a Child Molester, nor would we refer to the "Holy Ghost" of the Bible, that "Impregnated" Mary as a "Rapist" or "Adulterer".

"....it is possible that Mary gave birth to her Son when she was about thirteen or fourteen years of age...." (Source) [2]

Also, this paragraph was sent to me by brother Mike, who embraced Islam recently; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him: According to the Priest of Saint Mary's Catholic Church: "Mary was approximately 14 years old when she got pregnant with Jesus. Joseph, Mary's Husband is believed to be around 36. Mary was only 13 when she married Joseph. When she first was arranged with Joseph she was between 7 to 9 years old."

According to the "Oxford Dictionary Bible" commentary, Mary (peace be upon her) was was 12 years old when she became impregnated.

Joseph was not 90 years old. He was a working man, a carpenter, so he would have to be working age. Most bible scholars estimate he was 30-40 years old.

BUT, the problem with your theory is that it doesn't matter how old Joseph was because Mary was still a virgin when she gave birth. Therefore, this pile of BS means nothing.

Mary had already been "BETROTHED" to Joseph before conceiving Jesus. she gave birth between 11 and 14!

Quote:
"When forty years of age, Joseph married a woman called Melcha or Escha by some, Salome by others; they lived forty-nine years together and had six children, two daughters and four sons, the youngest of whom was James (the Less, "the Lord's brother"). A year after his wife's death, as the priests announced through Judea that they wished to find in the tribe of Juda a respectable man to espouse Mary, then twelve to fourteen years of age, Joseph, who was at the time ninety years old, went up to Jerusalem among the candidates; a miracle manifested the choice God had made of Joseph, and two years later the Annunciation took place."

It doesn't matter. The point you were trying to make was that Joseph was a child molester like Muhammed was. He wasn't. Joseph never had sex with her until after she delivered Jesus. Joseph was not the father of Jesus. God was.

I've always wondered: did joseph ever have sex with mary after she had someone else's child? Didn't jesus have a bro? Older? Younger?
I mean, if he was 90, was she a Nicole Smith type of deal?

Joseph was Jesus's step father.

Whether Jesus had brothers or sisters is controversial

The bible never says that he had biological brothers or not.

And Jesus called many other men his brother.

The Catholic Church, the largest Christian denomination in the world, say Mary never had sex after Jesus's birth and he had no siblings.

Most Bible scholars agree that Mary was 13 or 14 years old when she got married.

This was the standard marriage age for young girls in that day.

Which means that she was most likely 11 or 12, or even younger, when she was engaged to be married.

Again, that was normal for middle eastern culture during the time of Jesus.

How do you know when or if Joseph ever had sex with Mary?
