31 Then His mother and His brothers *arrived, and standing outside they sent word to Him and called Him.32 A crowd was sitting around Him, and they *said to Him, “Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are outside looking for You.”33 Answering them, He *said, “Who are My mother and My brothers?”34 Looking about at those who were sitting around Him, He *said, “Behold My mother and My brothers!35 For whoever does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother.”
20 And He *came [a]home, and the crowd *gathered again, to such an extent that they could not even eat [b]a meal.21 When His own [c]people heard of this, they went out to take custody of Him; for they were saying, “He has lost His senses.”
Matthew 12:46-50New American Standard Bible (NASB)
46 While He was still speaking to the crowds, behold, His mother and brothers were standing outside, seeking to speak to Him.47 Someone said to Him, “Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside seeking to speak to You.”[a]48 But [b]Jesus answered the one who was telling Him and said, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?”49 And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, He said, “Behold My mother and My brothers!50 For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother.”
19 And His mother and brothers came to Him, and they were unable to get to Him because of the crowd.20 And it was reported to Him, “Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, wishing to see You.”21 But He answered and said to them, “My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it.”
