At Pentecost Mary is a member of the new church. She has known Jesus in the flesh as His mother, but He is not knowable that way anymore. Mary knows Jesus now as all believers do: through faith in Jesus Christ and the in-dwelling Holy Spirit.

I think it would make me sorrow to see Jesus go up into heaven, leaving me behind. But He said it is expedient for us (and Mary) that He go away because He would send the Holy Spirit to us.

So Mary was not lying. She really did suffer as any normal mother would when her child went missing.

Mary did not lie. As far as sinless goes, Jesus is the only sinless One who ever lived.

An angel appeared to Joseph and told him to name the baby Mary was carrying. The angel said, “you shall call His name Jesus” (Matthew 1:21) and, as the Lord’s earthly father, Joseph gave Him the name of Jesus when He was born.

Matthew 1:25 But he [Joseph] had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he [Joseph] gave him the name Jesus.

Joseph was Jesus’ legal father. The genealogy in Matthew indicates that it was through the line of Joseph that Jesus had the right to inherit the throne of David as the King of the Jews. The Davidic line was passed down through the sons of Da vid, of which Joseph was a direct descendant through King Solomon. Therefore Jesus was in the line of succession because Joseph was his legal father. Although Mary was also from the Davidic line in the tribe of Judah, her lineage was not in the line of kingly succession through Solomon. Mary was a descendant through Nathan, David’s second surviving son with Bathsheba.

Additionally, in the book of Luke, we find Mary’s genealogy and it records:

Luke 3:23 “Jesus…being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli.”

The Greek word translated, “as was supposed” is nomizo. It also means “to do by law” or “to reckon by law.” So we understand Luke 3:23 to say that Joseph was (by law) the adopted son of Heli (Mary’s father) and the adoptive father (by law) of Jesus.
