Hong Xiuquan, the leader of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom revolt during the Qing dynasty, believed he had a celestial family in addition to his earthly one, and his celestial father was god (who was also Shangdi, supposedly), and his elder brother was Jesus. I've heard that he saw other celestial family members in his visions. Was his celestial mother Mary? Were there any other celestial family members he claimed he had?
