					 The Family Relationships of Jesus




Mark 6:1-6
       He departed from there and came to his native place, accompanied
       by his disciples. When the sabbath came he began to teach in the
       synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished. They said,
       "Where did this man get all this? What kind of wisdom has been
       given him? What mighty deeds are wrought by his hands! Is he
       not the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James and
       Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?"
       And they took offense at him. Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not
       without honor except in his native place and among his own kin and
       in his own house.“ So he was not able to perform any mighty deed
       there, apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on
       them. He was amazed at their lack of faith.

      Simon, and Judas? Are not his sisters all with us? Where did this
      man get all this?"

       sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. When Jesus
       saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to
       his mother, "Woman, behold, your son.“ Then he said to the
       disciple, "Behold, your mother." And from that hour the disciple
       took her into his home.

Then there was James, who was known as the brother of the Lord; for
He too was called Joseph’s son, and Joseph Christ’s father, though in
fact the Virgin was his betrothed, and before they came together she was
found to be with child by the Holy Ghost as the inspired gospel narrative
tells us (Mt 1:18). This James, whom the early Christians surnamed the
Righteous because of his outstanding virtue, was the first, as the record
tell us, to be elected to the episcopal throne of the Jerusalem church.
