We will finish Matthew 12 in which Jesus’ mother and brothers came seeking him. Jesus seems to disregard them and emphasizes his “new family.” Why does he do this?
The message is entitled Jesus’ Transcendent Family. The text is Matthew 12:46-50.
We will consider these points:
1. Jesus has no enduring earthly family.
2. Jesus came to gather a new family by grace.
3. The church is the family of Christ.
4. Implications for our faith today.
