Mary, the earth mother of Jesus, is one of the most beloved of the many figures in Jesus life. The Urantia Book reveals Mary to be a conscientious, loving, and totally devoted mother to her "child of promise." We learn of Mary's personality, her lineage, and her education; we learn the dates and names of all the children who she brought into the world as Jesus' siblings. We see Mary as a mother not at all unlike any other mother, and we are told that Mary, in spite of the cult of worship that bears her name, was a fairly ordinary woman, but an ordinary woman called to perform extraordinary service to our planet and our universe. And she performed her duty as a mother with exemplary attention, and great mother-love. The life she shared with Joseph, Jesus, and his siblings was an inspiration in Jesus' time, and is presented anew within the pages of The Urantia Book as a testament to love, and an inspiration for the times in which we now live.
