Default The Bible Defends the Catholic Church

As most of us are aware, Protestants rarely look outside the bible for answers, and many will only listen to what is literally in the Bible, and often fall into the trap of sometimes misinterpeting it.
They often say that the Blessed Virgin was not a virgin because Jesus had siblings (Pls. see Bible verses below - reference CPDV)
The interesting link from this website refutes that claim in favour of the Catholic Church
by using just the Bible.

Matthew:
{13:55} Is this not the son of a workman? Is not his mother called Mary, and his brothers, James, and Joseph, and Simon, and Jude?
{13:56} And his sisters, are they not all with us?

Mark:
{6:3} “Is this not the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joseph, and Jude, and Simon? Are not his sisters also here with us?”

Mark:
{3:31} And his mother and brothers arrived. And standing outside, they sent to him, calling him.
{3:32} And the crowd was sitting around him. And they said to him, “Behold, your mother and your brothers are outside, seeking you.”
