Zis-N-Zat From Pastor Asher

God is my conscience, Jesus lives in my heart… this blog is about what I see, what I think, what I do and how I serve God

Jesus and His Siblings

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).
