GOD WOULDN'T HAVE IMPREGNATED A BETROTHED (PROMISED) WOMAN
The Civil Writer Magazine
In Jewish law, if a woman is discovered to have committed adultery, her husband must divorce her. Adultery (from Latin adulterium) is extramarital sex that is considered objectionable on social, religious, moral, or legal grounds. The sexual activities that constitute adultery is clear married and having sex with someone other than a spouse. Immaculate conception is adultery. Easton's Bible Dictionary teaches us that "An adulterer was a man who had illicit (forbidden) intercourse with a married or a betrothed woman, and such a woman was an adulteress.
Under Jewish law there were no immaculate conceptions. Nor were there any prophecies revealing such events. Based upon the Catholic church definition immaculate conception has nothing to do with how Mary was impregnated.
In Christian theology, the Immaculate Conception is the conception of the Virgin Mary free from original sin by virtue of the merits of her son Jesus. This was not a Hebrew concept neither a human concept but a Catholicism. Not to be confused with a virgin birth.
Even an angel's voice to Mary would not have gotten her clearance by a ruling Rabbi not to receive an Ordeal test. Joseph would have had to lie and state it was his baby to keep Mary from going through an ordeal.
Why would God interfere in a betrothal by impregnating a woman with the Holy spirit who promised to marry someone. Being an angel's voice had explained the situation it was only heard by Mary. How would that be convincing to a Rabbi who wasn't a witness to the Angel's voice. And if adultery needed to be cleared by the Rabbi why wasn't Mary treated like other women accused of committing adultery being given them an Ordeal of water. How did Mary escape this test. The Ordeal of the bitter water was a trial administered to the wife whose husband suspected her of adultery but who had no witnesses to make a formal case (Numbers 5:19). 19 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse.
The events of Mary, Joseph and Jesus were all events that got around the laws of Moses. Any Jewish man or woman must abide by the laws of Moses. Hebrews 10:28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
