Jesus' vs. Jesus's

Okay I have a really pet peeve at people who say "Jesus-es" when trying to say Jesus'. As inthe following sentence; "Jesus' brothers found believing in Jesus to be difficult".

I was never mistaken for a English/grammar genius but is this really that hard to figure out?

Now I suddenly have an irrational fear (subtle shout out) that someone will correct me on my obvious misunderstanding of the apostrophe rule.

So...it's supposed to be Jesus' (pronounced Jesus-es) isn't it?

Because these brothers belong to Jesus...right?

Oh, I hate being insecure about my English knowledge.
