My Brother, My Sister, and Mother


There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him. (Mark:3:31)


And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. (Mark:3:32)


And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? (Mark:3:33)


And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! (Mark:3:34)


For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother. (Mark:3:35)


The Gospel of Mark chapter three verse thirty-five is one of the most important verses in the entire Holy Bible!


The “Pertinent” question is, “What is the WILL of God?


Matthew


While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. (Matthew:12:46)


Without — out (side of doors) literally or figuratively.


Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. (Matthew:12:47)


The word, “Desiring” is not a word used in the Gospel of Mark. It is used in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, only.


But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? (Matthew:12:48)


Brethren — a brother (literally or figuratively) near or remote.


What a difference a word makes!


The phrase, “But he answered and said unto him that told him,” is not the phrase used in the Gospel of Mark.


The author of the Gospel of Matthew made it seem as if the character Jesus was only talking loud enough for that, “One” person to hear him.


In the Gospel of Mark, the question is, “Who is my mother, or my brethren?


In the Gospel of Matthew, the author changed the question to, “Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?


The word “Brethren,” is “Singular,” as in, “One” brother!


And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! (Matthew:12:49)


For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. (Matthew:12:50)


The phrase, “My Father which is in heaven,” is unique to the Gospel of Matthew, but to stick to the “Message” of the author of the Gospel of Matthew, that there is a place in the sky, the character Jesus must refer to God, as the God in “Heaven!


Luke

Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press. (Luke:8:19)


The phrase, “Could not come at him for the press,” is not in the Gospel of Mark or the Gospel of Matthew.


And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee. (Luke:8:20)


And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it. (Luke:8:21)


In the Gospel of Mark:


For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother. (Mark:3:35)


In the Gospel of Matthew:


For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. (Matthew:12:50)


Three verses about the same exact conversation that the character Jesus was supposed to have had, but only one of them, if any of them, can be the actual saying.


The author of the Gospel of Luke used the phrase, “These which hear the word of God, and do it,” instead of, “Whosoever shall do the will of God,” which makes the question, “What is the will of God,” unnecessary?!


It seems as if the author, “Authors” or “Authorities” of the Gospel of Luke wants their audience to believe that whatsoever, “They” say that the character Jesus said, is “The Will of God….”


Yet another reason why the “Church” has been so ineffective in bringing peace on earth….
