Memorable Scripture: What do you believe?

Matthew 13:55-56
“Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us?”

Jesus had siblings!
Well, half-siblings. Jesus’ Father was the Holy Spirit (Matt 1:18) and the others were born of Joseph.
What do you think it was like growing up with Jesus? Joseph and Mary knew the truth but did they tell the other children.
I mean, by the time they’re old enough to understand that awesome moment of Gabriel talking with Mary had been so long ago. And Joseph’s dream, the trip to Bethlehem, then to Egypt was so long ago.
Perhaps they did not want to divide the family by singling out Yeshua as special.
So to the other children, He was just Yeshua, their brother and from the way He talked and acted He was destined to become a rabbi.
The people of Nazareth did not think overly highly of Him.
However, it does not matter what James, Joses, Simon, Judas, the sisters, or the population of Nazareth think about Him – what do you believe about Him?
