: I'm not an expert on this or anything, but James, Juda(s), and Simon (Peter) were all apostles.
It's spelled Juda in that verse, so it's not Judas Iscariot, as he is usually refered to. Also, Jesus had no female Apostles (and are not his sisters here with us.)
: We are all children of God, therefore, we are Jesus's brothers and sisters. That's what that passage means.
No, not exactly. See, there is a similar verse to Mark 6:3 in Matthew 13:55, and a chapter before that, in Matthew 12:50, was where he gave the message you are talking about (For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.) But, the thing is, this was the message he was giving to his followers, who believed his message. Then, however, he "came into his own country" (Mark 6:1 and Matthew 13:54) where he had not preached before. These people had not heard that message, and they were speaking in a physical sense.
: Nevertheless, I do believe that Mary and Joseph had kids after Jesus.
You believe because Kevin Smith says so, not the Bible. Cute.
