The Bible reports that in accord with the requirement of the Mosaic Law, 40 days after Jesus’ birth Mary offered at the temple in Jerusalem a sin offering for purification from uncleanness. If she inherited no sin and imperfection from Adam why would she have done this?—Luke 2:22-24; Lev. 12:1-8.

  • I guess the next question for Catholics may be: was Mary aware of her sinless condition?
