Jesus , therefore, seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing by, said to his mother : iWoman, behold thy son.; Then, he said to the disciple iBehold thy mother .; And from that hour the disciple took her to his own (home). This very well-known text is one of the most important Marian passages in Scripture .
Jesus replies, “ Who is my mother , and who are my brothers?” He points to the disciples and says, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother .” In Luke’s Gospel, Jesus pulls no punches.
Jesus ‘ brothers and sisters The Gospel of Mark (6:3) and the Gospel of Matthew (13:55–56) mention James, Joseph/Joses, Judas/Jude and Simon as brothers of Jesus , the son of Mary. The same verses also mention unnamed sisters of Jesus . Mark (3:31–32) tells about Jesus ‘ mother and brothers looking for Jesus .
Jesus hated his family because they betrayed his soul, and he made a new true family for himself – a family of true soulful companions, people open to his new, true, honest self.
Jesus was speaking to a group of His disciples when someone said that His mother and brothers were outside and asking to speak to Him (Matt 12:46). Typically, you would think that most people would excuse themselves and say , “I’ll be right back. My mother wants to speak to Me,” but Jesus is not typical in any way.
Woman, behold, thy son! When Jesus , therefore, saw his mother , and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he said to his mother , “Woman, behold, thy son!” After that, he said to the disciple, “Son, behold, thy mother !” And from that hour, that disciple took her unto his own home.
He said, “Who are my mother and my brothers ? Here are my mother and my brothers ! For whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother .” Luke 8:21 ” My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.” Jesus looks carefully at his audience and includes them in His family.
2. Your mother’s (or father’s) brother is your UNCLE. 3. Their children are your COUSINS.
Here are my mother and my brothers . For wherever there is one who has been obedient to God, there is my brother — my sister–and my mother . For whoever does the will of God, the same is my brother , and my sister, and mother .” For who that doith the wille of God, he is my brothir, and my sistir, and modir.
Jesus does not have a last name . Last names were not common in those times. Christ is not a name , but a title. Christ means “anointed” or “Messiah”, so Jesus became the “Christ” or “Messiah” when he got baptized at the age of 30.
Jesus had five brothers, namely, James (Ya’qov), Simon (Shim’on), Judah (Yehudah), Joses (Yosef) and Thomas (Toma’). And he also had two sisters, Rachel (Rakhel) and Lea (Le’ah).
In Pullman’s version of the story, Jesus has a twin brother named Christ . “I was intrigued, you see, by the difference between the two parts of the name Jesus Christ that we commonly use interchangeably,” Pullman says.
Mary was a first-century Galilean Jewish woman of Nazareth, the wife of Joseph, and the mother of Jesus , according to the canonical gospels and the Quran. The gospels of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament and the Quran describe Mary as a virgin.
The Christian Bible, in the Old Testament, records that both the prophet Elijah and the patriarch Enoch were bodily assumed into Heaven on a chariot of fire. Jesus is considered by the vast majority of Christians to have died before being resurrected and ascending to heaven.
Human beings have to wait until the end of time for their bodily resurrection, but Mary’s body was able to go straight to heaven because her soul hadn’t been tainted by original sin. Catholics celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary on August 15th each year.
