Last names in ancient Israel (& throughout the ancient world) weren't like what we know today... so Jesus would have been known as "Jesus bar Joseph", or Jesus, son of Joseph (Joseph was actually his "step-father").

And, actually, "Jesus" is a Greek rendition of the original Hebrew name, which would have been Yeshua.
