Jesus and His Siblings
21 December 2012Posted by on
Once in a while I am asked whether Jesus had any brothers and sisters.
Here are the scriptures that EXPLICITELY state that Jesus had brothers and sisters: Matthew 12:46, 13:55-56; Luke 8:19; Mark 3:31; John 7:1-10; Acts 1:14; Galatians 1:19
You can read these Scriptures here: NIV2010
Matthew 13:55-56 names four of Jesus’ brothers: James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas. Although Jesus’ sisters are not named, these two verses indicate that Jesus definitely had sisters (plural).
