According to the Bible (and confirmed by History), Jesus was born to Mary of Nazareth—a young teen girl of poor background. Mary, Jesus’ mother, married Joseph of Nazareth—a humble and poor carpenter who helped raise Jesus and became, in effect, His adoptive father.
The Bible depicts Jesus’ parents as being ordinary folk, humble and poor. They loved God.
Jesus’ kinship can be seen in the New Testament Gospels:

A verse in the Old Testament worth noting is found in Isaiah 7, verse 14:
“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, ad shall call His name Immanuel” (Isa. 7:14, NKJV).
Jesus was born of the virgin Mary. She was His mother. God was His father.
