To provide an answer to this question, I turned to Got Questions Ministries, accessed April 17, 2018, [https://gotquestions.org/Jesus-siblings.html]. "Jesus’ brothers are mentioned in several Bible verses. Matthew 12:46, Luke 8:19, and Mark 3:31 say that Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see Him. The Bible tells us that Jesus had four brothers: James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas (Matthew 13:55). The Bible also tells us that Jesus had sisters, but they are not named or numbered (Matthew 13:56).
In John 7:1-10, His brothers go on to the festival while Jesus stays behind. In Acts 1:14, His brothers and mother are described as praying with the disciples. Galatians 1:19 mentions that James was Jesus’ brother. The most natural conclusion of these passages is to interpret that Jesus had actual blood half-siblings."
The most recent religious cleansing is sadly and unbelievably happening now, in 2018. The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein described the continuing Myanmar military operation against the minority Muslim Rohingya people to be a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing". Initially the full extent of the situation couldn’t really be evaluated because of Myanmar's refusal to provide access.
Over 600,000 Rohingya refugees have arrived in Bangladesh and Malaysia and other places after fleeing violence in Myanmar since August 25, 2017. Rohingya people have crossed into Bangladesh with absolutely horrible stories of rape, murder of children, and entire villages being totally destroyed.
