I believe one way to answer this question would be:

5 pictures of celebrities whose first names begin J-E-S-U-S

However, something is awry (read on for an explanation...).

First, identify the pictured celebrities:

Celebrities identified

Now notice that:

The initials of their first names spell out 6 further names (of the same gender as the images used to spell them out):

Joachim
Rachel
Joseph
Jacob
Mary
Anne

These can be arranged in the bottom diagram as follows, positioning the respective genders as indicated by the symbols at the top of the puzzle:

Family tree of... er...

However, there is a small complication here...

What we have here is a family tree of sorts, with the left-hand side representing the lineage of Mary, the mother of Jesus and the right-hand side representing the lineage of Joseph... from the Old Testament. I suspect a Googling error may have been made by the OP when creating the puzzle, intending for these to be the parents of Joseph, husband of Mary.

Whatever has happened here, I suspect the intended answer to replace the question mark is the 'very famous person' JESUS, spelled out in my answer by the male names:

Jeff Bridges
Eric Cantona
Simon Cowell
Usain Bolt
Sebastien Coe

    $\begingroup$ @Prim3numbah Yes, precisely - that was really throwing me, and all I could think to conclude was that this had happened. Your intention was plain to see at least :) $\endgroup$
