Why do we see not much description about Jesus’s mother, Mary in the Bible? It only mentions mostly Mother Mary keeps things to her heart, like the loss of Jesus in the Temple.
【 Question from 】 Canada 加拿大
Fr. Francis :
That’s an unanswerable question. There are a lot of things not mentioned in the bible. The end of the Gospel of John says: “There are also many other things which Jesus did;were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.” (Jn 21:25) what did get written down was what was deemed sufficient for us to come to believe in Jesus Christ.
So not just Mary, but nothing was written about Jesus’ youth, or the lives of the apostles after Pentecost, or in fact most of them even during Jesus’ time, nor Joseph, nor Mary Magdalen, and many many others, because all these are not the point.
