“But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?”
King James Version (KJV)
12:48 And he answering, said - Our Lord's knowing why they came, sufficiently justifies his seeming disregard of them.
Mt 12:48 Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? An allusion to his Divine character, which lifted him above the ordinary ties of the flesh.
