Related Bible Verses about Jesus
These Marian apparitions claim that Mary has attributes that the Bible says only Jesus (and in some cases the Holy Spirit) has. Consider the Bible verses below from both the Protestant King James and Catholic New American Bible's. In both cases they directly contradict the apparition claims. See this link for a list of 20 claims the Marian apparitions make about Mary that are directly contradicted by the Bible. Also note that nowhere in the Bible does God say that Mary has any of these traits. Additionally, God specifically warned us that these apparitions would be commonplace in the last days, and that their purpose would be to deceive us.
