Then Jesus’ mother and his brothers came; and standing outside, they sent to him and called him. A crowd was sitting around him; and they said to him, â€œYour mother and your brothers and sisters are outside, asking for you.â€ And he replied, â€œWho are my mother and my brothers?â€ And looking at those who sat around him, he said, â€œHere are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.â€
