31 And his mother and brothers arrived. And standing outside, they sent to him, calling him.
32 And the crowd was sitting around him. And they said to him, "Behold, your mother and your brothers are outside, seeking you."
33 And responding to them, he said, "Who is my mother and my brothers?"
34 And looking around at those who were sitting all around him, he said: "Behold, my mother and my brothers.
35 For whoever has done the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister and mother."
2 Timothy 1:1-8
1 Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, in accord with the promise of the life which is in Christ Jesus,
2 to Timothy, most beloved son. Grace, mercy, peace, from God the Father and from Christ Jesus our Lord.
3 I give thanks to God, whom I serve, as my forefathers did, with a pure conscience. For without ceasing I hold the remembrance of you in my prayers, night and day,
4 desiring to see you, recalling your tears so as to be filled with joy,
5 calling to mind the same faith, which is in you unfeigned, which also first dwelt in your grandmother, Lois, and in your mother, Eunice, and also, I am certain, in you.
6 Because of this, I admonish you to revive the grace of God, which is in you by the imposition of my hands.
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of virtue, and of love, and of self-restraint.
8 And so, do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me, his prisoner. Instead, collaborate with the Gospel in accord with the virtue of God,
