the bible said to honor thy father and thy mother, but why did Jesus address his mother only as “woman”?
instead of “mother” when he was talking to her, both at the wedding at Cana and at the cross?
pink, are you saying that your own mother is only just a woman, too, that don’t deserve your respect or anyone else’s?
don’t = doesn’t

Remember, the bible is heavily translated. You have no idea of the initial connotation.

Answer by pinkstealth
To connect the dots, she IS only a woman. Unfortunately the Catholics have made sooo much more of her.

He did take care of His mother (as seen at the cross) but He also made it known in a profound way that she WAS human. He was not. She is NOT the mother of God, in any way. She was blessed of all women to be be selected for the Savior’s birth. But God is still God. And SHE is NOT His mother !

It was a sign of respect. Mary wasn’t just his Mother, but was a great woman. But, it was a sign of respect.

Mark Lowry said it best, if you’re going to call your mother “woman”, you BETTER be God!

Do as your told, not as you see.
That is the Christian way.

Answer by patrone07
First off, Jesus never sinned and obeyed the 10 commandments the most perfect way.

Jesus (The New Adam) refers to his beloved mother as “woman”, becuase he is referring to her as the New Eve! The Blessed Virgin Mary is the “woman” prophecized in Genesis 3:15 that would crush the head of the serpent! God bless!

Before the gospels were written, Churches tried to gain esteem by declaring a close association with members of Jesus’ family.

The gospel writers overcame the problem by suggesting that such family associations were nothing special – and that even Jesus was not overly impressed by them.

Answer by peter c
God said “women” at the Wedding of Cana, and He said “woman” while dying on the cross. The beginning and the end of his of His earthly ministry.

God said “woman” in Genesis 3:15, and He said “woman” in Rev. 12: >> The only two places in scripture where you have a woman and a serpent in the same verse. Genesis and Revelation, the beginning and the end of the Bible.

“Woman” is a two fold title. Culturally, it was an honorary term at that time, not a derogatory one as in 21st white Anglo-Saxon American culture.

There are other biblical references that uses “woman” as they refer to Mary.

Rev 12:15 The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the **woman**, to sweep her away with the flood. 16 But the earth came to the help of the **woman**, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river which the dragon had poured from his mouth.
17 Then the dragon was angry with the **woman**, and went off to make war ON THE REST OF HER OFFSPRING, on those who keep the commandments of God and bear testimony to Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea..

Who could these OFFSPRING be? Ever commentator worth his salt will tell you that these offspring are the Church. How did the Blessed Virgin Mom become the Mother of the Church?

John 19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, **Woman**, behold thy son! 27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

The experiences of the “Beloved Disciple” (BD) were the focus of John’s Gospel. He is an ‘everyman’ character. St. John’s Gospel is told in such a way that the reader can identify himself with the BD and is meant to see the story of Jesus from the BD’s perspective. Whatever is addressed to the BD is addressed to the reader.

So we have established that:
1) Mary is the Mother of Jesus
2) Whose children are the Church that keeps the commandments AND honors her Son
3) Who himself explicitly designated her as the Mother of his disciples.

lol Pink. Go read your bible. Something’s showing and it might embarrass you.

Answer by Bill
the expression “what have I to do with you?” This is apparently a common Jewish idiom that appears a number of times in the Bible. For example, at 2 Samuel 16:10, we find David stopping Abishai from killing Shimei by saying: “What do I have to do with you men, you sons of Zeruiah? Thus let him call down evil, because Jehovah himself has said to him, ‘Call down evil upon David!’” Likewise, we read at 1 Kings 17:18 that the widow of Zarephath, upon finding that her son had died, said to Elijah: “What do I have to do with you, O man of the true God? You have come to me to bring my error to mind and to put my son to death.”

From these Bible examples, we can see that the expression “what have I to do with you?” is often used, not to show disdain or arrogance, but to refuse involvement in some proposed or suggested action or to express a difference in viewpoint or opinion.

Jesus’ reply, “What have I to do with you, woman?” is an ancient form of question that indicates an objection to what is suggested or proposed. Why does Jesus object to Mary’s words? Well, he is now 30 years of age. Just a few weeks earlier, he was baptized, anointed with holy spirit, and introduced by John the Baptizer as “the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.” Now his direction must necessarily come from the Supreme Authority who sent him. (1 Corinthians 11:3) No one, not even a close family member, could be allowed to interfere with the work Jesus came to earth to do. What determination to do his Father’s will is expressed in Jesus’ answer to Mary!

Regarding the term “woman,” Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words notes: “Used in addressing a woman, it is a term not of reproof or severity, but of endearment or respect.” Other sources agree with this. For example, The Anchor Bible says: “This is not a rebuke, nor an impolite term, nor an indication of a lack of affection. It was Jesus’ normal, polite way of addressing women.” The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology explains that the word “is used as an address with no irreverent secondary meaning.” And Gerhard Kittel’s Theological Dictionary of the New Testament says that such usage “is in no way disrespectful or derogatory.” Thus, we should not conclude that Jesus was being rude or unkind to his mother in addressing her by the term “woman.”

Is it true that your wife turned to her mother?

Is it true that your wife turned to her mother?
There is a rule of thumb that says: “If you know what your wife will want to look like after 20 years of marriage, just look at her mother.” How is it different in appearance, since you married her? Is your wife so hot, as if you are married to her or not? How is she similar to her mother physically? BTW, it is possible for a woman to get as hot as the first time she married. I know one or two, and both had children. However, it is selten.Bitte share a story. Please write more than 5 sentences.

To be honest with you. My mother was a hottie when she married for the first time and then she got older and gained some weight. Now she’s older, and she’s lost the weight and always looking an incredible 50 years old.I was much thinner when I married for the first time. I have since had two children, now are teenagers and I finally lose the weight. I personally feel much better about my appearance jetzt.Ich should be happy to look like my mother when I’m 50.

No my wife did not quite turn out like her mother. A bit of her father in her. It makes even a few puffs of her mother, but she is always about some of them, but always different. It has become a little more than 15 years. She is not an outdoor person. If they from work on things in the yard to other hobbies would do more things they would cut a little, but hey, I’m becoming more like my pa except for the hair loss. My wife is more like my family cooks cook than her mother does, because I do not eat, like my mother cooks.

I suspect that say I’ve heard is if you know what your wife is in 20 years as opposed to what they want to look . My husband said at our wedding for the entire amount that, if I am like my mother in 20 years he could not ask for any better, because my mother is so wonderful. So sweet! It made weinen.Ich do not think I did so much to me as my mother when she was my age, so I would not expect, looking like she is doing now for 20 years. I hope I have the same loving, caring, selfless spirit that she has, if I do not look like them.

I think you better spend some time watching women and their mothers. This is one of the things that you hear about and think. . . “Bla bla, yeah, whatever” when you are 20 years old. But over time, you begin to notice things that “old” people always talked about as wahr.Kinder resemblance is scary. The first time you do something or say something like your parents, you freak out. Then people begin to “note” can do more. We all absolutely in our parents to some degree drehen.Es are no fixed rules as we go from a unique genetic mix of two individuals. We take on some characteristics of both parents. You also need to consider the environment. If the girl was raised to eat like a pig. . . You see what I’m saying? Really look also here on the people and you will begin to see. As a scientist, I like to people watch. Here are some examples from my Leben.1. My face looks a bit like my father, and I have some mannerisms that amended.2 just like him. My sister has a completely different body than my mother, but she begins to parent in a way ähneln.3. Sometimes you can get someone to look young and only know that they are “really old” look when they old funds.4. I knew a girl, the mother was pretty clunky, but the daughter was still hot. Man, a couple of months of stress and grabbed her on the pounds (I have heeded the warning, the old saying and got the heck out of) 5 I dated a girl who’s mom is trim and fit (feisty old lady), but her daughter turns into a piglet recently. go figure6. I’m pretty sure that my wife’s face will remain for quite a long time. Her mother and grandmother could go well gealtert.Ich, but I stress again visual observation. You will soon enough for themselves sehen.ich do not really always know hot, but some people find more confidence when married. This acts as a “hot” Also, sometimes a spouse will influence fashion and style of the other. You could hide a hot chick, takes off the glasses and then working hot (as they do in movies always) Some people are just ugly, though. I guess guys are more likely to improve because they are “looking distinguised” (sp?) Re-look at some yearbook pictures, then compare the people aged 28-32. Some people will lose their hair, pig and just be angry. Some will get their money and hot career women or men are smoking. Dressed well, confident, usw.Auch around here. The shopping center and just people watch. You will see it.

Did I do the right thing by me mother?
Hello My mother wrote me this morning to tell me that they say my husband by e-mail to him, not to our toddler as “baby-tyrant.” For my husband, he told him as a pet name. But I think that it will not be so good as to call him that could. I told my my mother it would be best if I had addressed concerns him to me. Somehow I have ways to tell him without anyone offended. My mother has done it a few times in the past. I try to avoid resentment of any kind to vermeiden.Aber I told my mother in a nice way, in the hope that it was a nice way that it would be better if I told my husband that any concerns they have could. Because I had a way to tell him I was.Habe ok do you say? ? Was I disrespectful to her, Thank you 🙂 Best Answer (s):

I think you did the right thing. Your relationship with your man should come to your mother before your relationship, if for no other reason than your husband to live haben.Ich do not think you were disrespectful, and if she thinks you were then it must be safe be disrespectful for them to tell your husband how he should address his own son.
