Did Mary, the mother of Jesus, have any other children by Joseph?
Yes, the Bible does tell us that Jesus had other brothers and sisters that were born to Mary and Joseph. This is recorded in the gospel of Matthew in the following Passage:
MAT 13:54 And coming to His home town He began teaching them in their synagogue, so that they became astonished, and said, “Where did this man get this wisdom, and these miraculous powers?
MAT 13:55 “Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary, and His brothers, James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?
MAT 13:56 “And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this man get all these things?”
MAT 13:57 And they took offense at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his home town, and in his own household.”
MAT 13:58 And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief.
