Here Are some quotes Quot is not this the Carpenter s son is not his Mother called Mary Are not his brother James Joseph Simon Judas Are not All his Sisters with us Quot see Mark 6 3. The Brothers of Jesus also surface in the acts of the apostles among Mary the other disciples who gather for prayer then receive the holy spirit at Pentecost 1 14. They reappear in st. Paul s first letter to the corinthians 9 5. And finally Quot James the lord s brother Quot is spotted in galatians 1 19. Who Are these siblings not Mary s children for she was a Virgin not Only at the time of Jesus birth but All her life. This belief in Mary s Quot real perpetual virginity Quot developed in the Early Church As a result of deepened Faith in Christ s virginal Conception. And yet with no family Trees to provide direction on How to View these Quot Brothers Sisters Quot christians Over the centuries have subscribed to different explanation. For instance they Are children of Joseph a deceased wife. For Eastern christians even some catholics this remains the most convincing scenario. The dominant View among protestants is that the siblings Are biological children of Joseph Mary. This opinion developed Only with the Rise of the enlightenment was not the View of initial protestant reformers such As Martin Luther John Calvin. The explanation that Jesus so called Brothers Sisters were really his cousins was introduced by st. Jerome in the late fourth Century. He explained that neither hebrew nor aramaic has a word for Cousin so the word for Brothers was often used instead. St. Thomas Aquinas wrote that Quot god placed the Virgin in the care of a Man who was thus he affirmed the theological opinion that the Church in the West has followed since the 15th Century.

Last Spring the owner of the mentioned ossuary who wants to remain Anonymous invited him to Jerusalem showed him the three names on his Limestone Bone Box Jacob which is the aramaic version of James Joseph Jesus. The inscription As with most semitic writings starts on the right. Yaakov bar Yosef it begins carved Strong deep in the Stone Quot James son of then More eroded a Hui i.
