Someone came to my blog by doing a search on “do Jews consider their cousins ‘brothers’?”
The reason for this is that Roman Catholic apologists often attempt to portray Mary as perpetually virgin. In response to the Bible stating flatly that Jesus Christ had brothers and sisters, the RCC Apologists claim that Jews consider their cousins “brothers” and call them that.
Not to be rude, but… it’s a lie. Or a grievous error, but they’ve been corrected on it multiple times by Protestants, Baptists and Jews.
Jews do not call their cousins “Brother”. They call them… cousins.
Trust me… I’m Jewish.
