When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. (John 19:26-27) Jesus left his earthly Mother Mary in the Apostle John's charge to care for her. I think we can all agree that John probably out lived Mary. Why doesnt John mention such a spectacular event as the assumption, body and soul, of Mary into heaven anywhere in the Bible? One could make the argument that her death isnt mentioned either. But that would further prove that the apostles didnt elevate Mary to the position that the Roman Church does.
