The Family of Christ (Mark 3:20-35)

The book of Mark is a unfolding, an unwrapping, like slowly tearing off the paper of a gift at Christmas. Each tear–each story–reveals something more about what is inside. And it is revealing two very closely related things: Who the King is, and what his kingdom is like. This week is pretty fascinating because, in a round about way, Jesus is going to show us what family looks like in the kingdom of God. Who we are related to, and how we are related to them, is drastically different in Christ’s kingdom. How? And why does it matter?
