Joses in Wikipedia
Saint Joses (or Joseph) is the second of the brothers of
Jesus appearing in the New Testament.
Joses is first mentioned in Mark 6:3 , which related people
talking about Jesus:
"Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother
of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his
sisters here with us? And they took offense at him."
A Joses also appears in Mark 15:40 , which mentions among
the women present at Jesus' crucifixion a "Mary, the mother
of James the Less and Joses".
The Gospel of Matthew closely mirrors these two passages in
Matthew 13:55-57 and Matthew 27:56 and, depending on the
Greek textual tradition, reads Joseph (Alexandrian, Western)
or Joses (Byzantine).
Since Joses is an uncommon variant of Joseph and appears in
no other place in the book or the entire New Testament, it
is likely that both verses refer to the same person.
In the medieveal Legenda Aurea, Joses is
also identified with Joseph Barsabbas, also called Justus,
who in the Acts of the Apostles 1:23 is mentioned as a
candidate to fill the vacancy created by the death of Judas
Iscariot. Justus is listed third in the hereditary line of
succession of the Desposyni after James the Just and Simeon
of Jerusalem as Bishops of Jerusalem.
