Luke chapter 1 verse 36.
If the mothers Elizabeth and Mary were cousins, what relationship were their sons?
I've always gotten very confused about such questions,!

Thank you for letting me know! .:)
It works fine here, so it must have been something in the content of that particular post. I think there were numbers evolved, or something like that, lol.

There was a link embedded, but it should have read fine if all my other posts were okay...

Anyways, I will go with the darker shade of purple for now...

From Luke Chapter 1, verse 56 I see that Mary stayed 3 months with Elizabeth. Which means very likely she stayed for the birth of John the Baptist.
I never before realised such details.

They met at a potluck at First Baptist Church of Nazareth, and made a covenant to be besties forever by sharing the last piece off fish.
