There are 3 distinct (fairly) well-known Josephs in the Bible, (mainly)firstly in the Old Testament (mainly):

  1. Joseph the son of Jacob/Israel (aka The Patriarch Joseph). This Joseph is actually referred to in a few select places in the New Testament: John 4:5; Acts 7:9-18; Hebrews 11:21-22 & Revelation 7:8.

However, it's more likely that a Joseph in the New Testament would be one of:

  1. Joseph husband of Mary and surrogate father of Jesus (aka St. Joseph).
  2. Joseph of Arimathea in whose tomb Jesus was laid to rest.

There's also another 9 or 10 more obscure Josephs referred to in the Bible*, 4 more in the Old Testament*:

  1. Father of Igal of the tribe of Issachar (cf. Numbers 13:7).
  2. One of the "sons of Asaph" (cf. 1 Chronicles 25:2 & 9).
  3. A descendant of Binnui, a contemporary of Ezra (cf. Ezra 10:38-42).
  4. Head of the priestly family of Shekaniah, a contemporary of Nehemiah (cf. Nehemiah 12:14).

And 5 or 6 more in the New Testament:

  1. One of the (half-)brothers of Jesus (often translated as "Joses" - cf. Mark 6:3).
  2. The son of "Mary" and brother of James (possibly/probably The Mary, if so, identical to Joseph number 8. - cf. Mark 15:40 & 47).
  3. The son of Mattathais (and father of Jannai) appearing in Luke's genealogy of Jesus (in which Joseph number 2. also appears - cf. Luke 3:24-25).
  4. The son of Jonam (and father of Judah) also appearing in Luke's genealogy of Jesus (cf. Luke 3:30).
  5. One of the nominees to replace Judas as an apostle, aka Barsabbas aka Justus (cf. Acts 1:23).
  6. A Levite from Cyprus aka Barnabas who probably deserves to be listed amongst the "well-known" Josephs except that he is almost always referred to as Barnabas instead (cf. Acts 4:36).

*That is in the Protestant Canon, there are another 3 in the Deuterocanonical books: Son of Oziel (great-grandfather of Judith - cf. Judith 8:1); Son of Zechariah (cf. 1 Maccabees 5); Brother of Judas Maccabeus (aka John - cf. 2 Maccabees 8:22).
