THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 12 - Verse 46

Verses 46-50. See also Mr 3:31-35; Lu 8:19-21.

His brethren. There has been some difference of opinion about the persons who were meant here; some supposing that they were children of Mary his mother, others that they were the children of Mary the wife of Cleophas or Alpheus his cousins, and called brethren according to the customs of the Jews. The natural and obvious meaning is, however, that they were the children of Mary his mother. See also Mr 6:3. To this opinion, moreover, there can be no valid objection.

{u} "his mother" Mr 3:31; Lu 8:19 {v} "brethren stood" Mt 13:55
