Black Christians : 6 Women Named "Mary"

In the Spirit of Sankofa and Peace and Love!

To my knowledge, it's Miryam or Miriam.

Its a little confusing sister cherryblossom, just a little. Here is a link I found:

For some reason, they select Aramaic while making reference to the Hebrew:

Additional info:Aramaic alternative form of the Hebrew name Miriam. It is also the form of Mary used in the Greek translation of the Bible. It was mistaken as a Latin accusative case and gave the well-known name Maria. It can also be considered as a short form of Mariamne, and as a variant spelling of the Arabic Maryam.

Probably not because Jose is a rare, unique nickname. U have to remeber also that tampering of texts may have also taken place because ideology that Mary was a virgin for life were kicking around too.

Joses Barnabas

Joses, pronounced in Greek as ee-o-sace, is the New Testament rendering of the Hebrew name (see Translation Of Translations) that itself was an abbreviation of the Hebrew form of Joseph (pronounced yo-safe). It was a name very familiar (a word meaning family) to Jesus Christ; His adopted father Joseph, and His actual biological brother, through Mary, Joses, had those names (Joses was very likely named after his father Joseph; see Mary's Other Children) i.e. "13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?" (Matthew 13:55 KJV).

Another Joses is well known to Bible History, although more-often by the "surname" that was given to him by the apostles - Barnabas, a Levite from Cyprus who was among the first to become Christian after the Sacrifice of the Lamb of God.

"4:34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 4:35 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.
4:36 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation, a Levite [see Levites], and of the country of Cyprus, 4:37 Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet." (Acts 4:34-37 KJV)

1. Mary (mother of John Mark)
Acts 12:[12] And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.

2. Mary (wife of Cleopas)
John 19:[25] Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

3. Mary (mother of James and Joses)
Matthew 27: [56] Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children.

4. Mary (sister of Martha)
John.11:[1] Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.

5. Mary Magdalene
Luke 8:[2] And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,

6. Mary (mother of Jesus)
Matthew 1:[16] And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

7. Romans 16:[6] Greet Mary, who bestowed much labour on us.

Was Mary #3 and Mary #6 the same Mary? They do say Jesus brothers included James and Joses

Jose is a rare nickname for Joseph a brother of Jesus (Mark 6:3)

James and Joses (or Joseph) are very common names.

"Jose" is a shortened version of the GREEK name for Joseph.

In GREEK, Joseph is "Josetos" or "Joses."

In HEBREW, "Joseph" is Yosef....There is no letter "J" in Hebrew.

"Jose" and "Joses" are both found in the Bible:

Mark 6:
[3] Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

2. The brother of James, the Less >>>
Mark 15:
[40] There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;

3. First name of Barnabas >>>
Acts 4:
[36] And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,

4. An ANCESTOR in Jesus' Family Tree >>>
Luke 3:
[29] Which was the son of Jose, which was the son of Eliezer, which was the son of Jorim, which was the son of Matthat, which was the son of Levi,
