Note: This series is written as a first-person narrative in order to present Jesus in the context he walked with the unknown disciple that narrates presenting my thoughts and sparking more thoughts with his questions. Enjoy!
I overheard what the messenger said. “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.”
Looking around, I noted the large crowd. There was no way through. I see Jesus half-smile, ““Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?”
He points at us, saying, “Here are my mother and my brothers.”
Shock registered on the faces of those around us that heard him. The family is extremely important in our culture.
Jesus sweeps his arm over the crowd as he continues. “For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
His point made, he turns and goes to see his family. If God is the Father, then that does make us family.
