Jesus\Y'shua is recorded as having 4 brothers and at least 2 sisters. Among
his brothers, we know more about James/Ya'akov than any of the others. The
other brothers were:
Shymeon appears to have succeeded Ya'akov as head of the Jerusalem
N'tzarim after Ya'akov's death. We know nothing about them nor have
anything that they may have written or said. Whhether the Epistle of
James contain origional Jacobian material is a matter of conjecture...the
same for the Epistle of Jude.
The family of Jesus...as well as most of his Talmuddaya..seem to have
been personae non gratae to the early gentile Christian church and the
Desposynoi continued to be outside the mainstream for a couple of
centuries. It is interesting to speculate why...perhaps because the
family and eyewitnesses would have been hostile to the virgin-born
god/man stuff...what ya think?
