Mary, the pregnant teen

Natalie Collins uses the experience of Mary as the focus of our Bible study

Mary, the pregnant teen ISTOCK/GINOSPHOTOS

Read Luke 1:26-56. Take time to reflect on the events that are described.

Then Mary said, “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.”
(Luke 1:38)

Contemporary Christianity disagrees on Mary’s status within Christian tradition. Did she remain a virgin for the rest of her life, or was she also the mother of those described as Jesus’ brothers within the Gospels? For feminists, Mary’s role is complex. She is a named woman within Scripture  whose voice is recorded, yet she casts a long shadow down the centuries, the impossibility of the Virgin Mother. The dichotomy of the virgin and whore, of Mary and Jezebel, echoes throughout  Scripture. Women’s purity seems always linked to their sexuality; men’s, not so much.
