Jesus Had Siblings :- Mark names four brothers (and at least two sisters) of Jesus: James, Joseph, Jude, and Simon. That passage has been a point of contention of centuries, especially those who hold mother Mary as the perennial virgin. Theories abound that the four could be cousins or children of Joseph from a prior unmentioned marriage, but the word in the original Greek is adelphoi, which translates to “brother.” It literally means “from the same womb”. Meanwhile, the Greek word for “cousin” is anepsios, and cousins are explicitly referred to as such.
