Chapters 16 and 17 of this book ask did Mary remain a virgin all her life?
A book called Infancy Gospel of James, the Protoevangelium of James, or sometimes simply The Protoevangelium was written about the middle of the second century. This writing apparently first proclaimed the idea that Mary remained a virgin her entire life. The book was declared a forgery by the early church, the author for credibility trying to capitalize on the name of James the half-brother of Christ..
However, even today, some folks follow the errors of this book. Mary was a special woman in God’s sight, but nevertheless an ordinary human wife and mother.
Scripture clearly mentions brothers and a sister than were born to Mary after the birth of Jesus, with Joseph as the likely father. Christians need to believe what God says, and not teachings supposedly claiming they are truth.
