Joseph was the husband of the Virgin Mary, and the “Earthly” father of Jesus Christ. Now, obviously, Jesus is the child of God according to the Bible, and Mary was a virgin when she gave birth to him. So while St. Joseph is not Jesus’ actual father, he was a father figure for Jesus when he was on Earth.
Jesus ‘ brothers and sisters The Gospel of Mark (6:3) and the Gospel of Matthew (13:55–56) mention James, Joseph/Joses, Judas/Jude and Simon as brothers of Jesus , the son of Mary .
