Was Jesus born 2002 years ago? Was h-e born in year zero? The very first year AD was 1 - so, Jesus could not happen to be born in year zero. The notion of zero was invented much later. Numerous old minutia in-the gospels show that Jesus must have been born before 4 BC. For example, He was said to have been created during the reign of King Herod, who died in 4 BC.

Jesus' mother, Mary, was a virgin before it gave birth to him - and remained a virgin in perpetuity. Here is the official (Catholic) doctrine.

But Jesus had sisters and brothers - a lot of siblings. E. Paul wrote (Galatians 1:18-19 ): 'Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and house with him fifteen days. But of the other apostles saw I none save James the Lord's brother.' That very same James is also the daughter of 1, Alpheus! All of the brothers of Jesus will be the sons with this Alpheus whose wife's name was... Jane! Matthew 1:25: 'And he [Joseph] knew her [Mary] maybe not until she had brought forth her first-born son...' First-born meaning there were others who used (second-born, third-born, etc.) Matthew 13:55-56: 'Is this not the carpenter's son? Isn't his mother called Mary? James, and his brethren and Joses and Judas and Simon? And his sisters, are they not all around'? Mark 6:3 (talking about Jesus ): 'Is this perhaps not the father, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Judas, and Simon? And aren't his sisters here with us'? Based on both Matthew and Mark, three women stood by the cross in the crucifixion: Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and of Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's kiddies (Salome). Salome was Virgin Mary's sister and, therefore, Jesus' maternal grandmother. To discover additional info, we know people check out: open in a new browser window. David (an eyewitness to the events) identifies Mary as Jesus' mother - but distinguishes her from Mary, spouse of Alpheus and two other women (for a total of four women rather than three ): David 19:25: 'Now there stood by the cross of Jesus (1) his mother, and (2) his mother's sister, (3) Mary the wife of Cleophas [Alpheus], and (4) Mary Magdalene.' Jane, wife of Alpheus, couldn't have been the brother of the Virgin Mary, while the Church would have us believe. In Jewish families, two sisters cannot share the same name. David suggests that Mary, mother of Jesus wasn't the wife of Alpheus, father of Joses and James, and Judas, and Simon, who are identified as the brothers of Jesus by all another gospels!.
