All About Mary

Age of Mary and Joseph at Jesus' Birth

Q: How old were Mary and Joseph when Jesus was conceived?

A: Since the Scriptures do not explicitly discuss this question, no one is certain of the answer. At one time, Joseph was assumed to be elderly when he married Mary. However, now we believe that Mary and Joseph were both in their teens when Jesus was born, around sixteen and eighteen respectively. This was the norm for Jewish newlyweds at that time. Please keep watching for more details about the life of Mary.
