7) From this information you can now easily understand the nature of our biblical gospel of Matthew. Likewise, you will better comprehend what is said in the 13th chapter, where it reads in verses 55-56: 'Is not this the son of the carpenter Joseph? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joses, Simon, Jude and John? And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all his wisdom?' To appreciate this correctly, one must know what is mentioned in the gospel of John, namely, that I once came to Nazareth and taught there in the synagogue, working many signs. Whenever my disciples and apostles began to criticize Me, I said: 'No prophet is to rise from Galilee', or in other words, a prophet is nowhere less appreciated than in his father-land. Then I left Nazareth, never to return.
8) As regards My so-called 'brothers and sisters', they were Joseph's children from his first marriage, not the children of Mary, whose only child I was. The 'sisters' were not even daughters of Joseph’s, but his poor relatives; they were called thus because they lived according to the will of both Joseph and Mary. Three of these brothers traveled with Me, namely, James, Simon and John. Two stayed home to continue Joseph's business, and cared for Mary until I gave her over to John's care.

 To which one can reply: Firstly, Joseph had never possessed a complete property and thus could not leave any. Secondly: his children, both his own and those who were taken in, were themselves in the greatest poverty, and for the most part followed Me: and among them was John himself, who was much in the house of Joseph, and also a pupil (student) of this house. For his father was still poorer than Joseph himself and therefore gave his son away, that he would learn the art of Joseph. He did learn it and was both a very skilled carpenter and joiner and also knew how to do turning. Besides, he immensely loved Mary, as well as Me, and the whole house of Joseph, and Mary could not be entrusted to better and more faithful hands than this very son of Zebedee.
