    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.

    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.
