Your mother and Your brothers are outside asking for You.” 33 And He replied, “Who are My mother and My brothers?” 34 Looking at those who were sitting in a circle around Him, He said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! 35 For (a)whoever does the will of God [by believing in Me, and following Me], he is My brother and sister and mother.”
