Titles of Mother Mary in the Bible


1- The Bible calls Virgin Mary the Mother of Jesus, the Mother of God, in Mat.1 and Lk.1:

    - Lk.1:30: "But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favour with God. 31: You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. 32: He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end."  (Lk.1:30-32).

    - Mat.1:18: This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. 20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." (Mat.1:18-21).

    Virgin Mary is not God, the Church honours her, mainly as the "Mother of Jesus", thus fulfilling The Prophesy of Virgin Mary in the Bible in Lk. 1:48 and Psalm 45.

2- But She calls herself "the servant of the Lord":

     "I am the Lord's servant," Mary answered. "May it be to me as you have said." Then the angel left her. (Lk.1:38).
    
The only title Virgin Mary gives to herself in the Bible is the "servant of the Lord".

3- The humble servant of the Lord:

    Ten verses later Mary gives to herself the other similar title: the humble servant of the Lord:

    "For he has been mindful  of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed", (Lk.1:48).

    And these are the only titles Virgin Mary gives to herself in the Bible.

4- The Spouse of the Holy Spirit:

    The Bible calls Virgin Mary the Spouse of the Holy Spirit... but the only title she gives to herself is the humble servant of the Lord:

  • The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. (Lk.1:35)

  • "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." (Mat.1:20-21).

The Prophecy in the Bible about Mother Mary:

 

 

The Bible makes a prophecy about Mary in Luke 1:48: "For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed".

It is the same prophecy made by the Holy Spirit in Psalm 45, the Psalm of the King and the Queen, in the last verse says: "I will cause your name to be celebrated in all generations; therefore the peoples will praise you for ever and ever".

This prophecy has been fulfilled during the last 2000 years, and in superabundance!:

  • The Mother of God has been the woman on earth to whom more paintings and poems and songs have been dedicated, by the best artists of the six continents, to praise her with all kind of art... and those poems and songs have been song daily by millions of Christians... and those paintings are in millions of homes to honour her, praise the Lord and the Bible!.

  • Mary is the woman to whom more sculptures and chapels have been dedicated in these 2000 years, and more temples, and cathedrals, and basilicas... by the best artists... to praise her with the sculpture and architecture!... and millions of persons have those sculptures at home to honour her, and go periodically to those chapels and cathedrals o praise the Mother of Jesus, our Saviour, praise the Lord!.

  • Millions of people wear daily her medals and scapulars, to praise her as Mother!... and millions of persons pray the Rosary daily, to praise the Mother of Jesus, including the Popes, the Cardinals, the thousands of bishops, the millions of pastors and priests and deacons and nuns, during every day for the last 2000 years, and millions of faithful laymen Christians... and every day that legion increases, praise God.

  • In fact, every second literally, of every day, for the last 2000 years, some one has been repeating the words of the Bible in some part of the world, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus"...

  • Indeed this prophecy of the Bible on the Mother of Jesus has been overwhelmingly fulfilled, as all the prophecies of the Bible that are fulfilled to the letter and in superabundance, praise Jesus!.
