Matthew 1:25: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
Luke 12:59: I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.
According to standard Protestant apologetics, the Koine Greek word for "till" (ἕως or εως depending on your manuscript of choice) doesn't necessarily mean that the event referred to ever happens. Therefore, they deny that the second verse above refers to Purgatory. Rather, it refers to Hell, where unrepentant sinners will suffer forever "till" an impossible outcome which will never come to pass. However, they use the other meaning of "till" to deny Mary's perpetual virginity.
Catholic apologists do the exact opposite. They deny that the first verse implies that Joseph eventually had relations with his wife. On the other hand, they insist that the second verse is proof of Purgatory, because those who die in God's grace will be there "till" their unconfessed venial sins are purged.
Meanwhile, Orthodox Christians believe in Mary's perpetual virginity, but not in Purgatory. Might they be on to something? Or, can Catholic and/or Protestant interpretations of scripture be reconciled?
