THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on The Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ, According to St. Matthew (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

13:55 His brethren: These were the children of Mary the wife of Cleophas, sister to our Blessed Lady, (St. Matt. 27.56; St. John 19.25,) and therefore, according to the usual style of the Scripture, they were called brethren, that is, near relations to our Saviour.
