According to the law given to the ancient Jews, which is normally applied to both modern day Jews and Christiains, these are the laws regarding incest: Any close fleshly relative, parents, step-parents (remarried to a natural parent), sister, brother, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, daughter or son in-law. (Leviticus 18:6-17)
