After that He went down to Capernaum with His mother and brothers and disciples, and they stayed there only a few days.
Jesus was still speaking to the people when behold, His mother and brothers stood outside, seeking to speak to Him.
Then Jesus' mother and His brothers came along toward Him, but they could not get to Him because of the crowd.
And it was told Him, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, desiring to have an interview with You.
Is not this the carpenter's Son? Is not His mother called Mary? And are not His brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?
Is not this the Carpenter, the son of Mary and the brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not His sisters here among us? And they took offense at Him and were hurt [that is, they disapproved of Him, and it hindered them from acknowledging His authority] and they were caused to stumble and fall.
And do not all His sisters live here among us? Where then did this Man get all this?
So His brothers said to Him, Leave here and go into Judea, so that Your disciples [there] may also see the works that You do. [This is no place for You.]
1 Corinthians 9:5
Have we not the right also to take along with us a Christian sister as wife, as do the other apostles and the Lord's brothers and Cephas (Peter)?
But I did not see any of the other apostles (the special messengers of Christ) except James the brother of our Lord.
All of these with their minds in full agreement devoted themselves steadfastly to prayer, [waiting together] with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.
And when those who belonged to Him ( His kinsmen) heard it, they went out to take Him by force, for they kept saying, He is out of His mind (beside Himself, deranged)!
For [even] His brothers did not believe in or adhere to or trust in or rely on Him either.
