Mathew  13:55-56 Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56 Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?” 57 And they took offense at him.

 Jesus was about 16 years old when His brothers and sisters were at home while He was out teaching in the synagogue. 

James:  You know we have to do not only our chores but His too!  It’s not fair!!

Simon:  I know ….all this teaching and preaching stuff because He’s supposed to be… the Son of God!  Yeah right!

Sister 1:  Who’s His real daddy anyway?  Our father is Joseph and mother says Jesus Father is God.  How in the world could that be possible?  Come on now!

Judas:  I think He’s just their favorite child and I am not going to bow down and kiss His feet!

Sister 2:  Who does He think He is!!  A mini Rabbi?  The king of the Jews?  No!… He’s the king of carpentry with a hammer as His scepter.  Hee! Hee!

James:  Preach sister!

Joseph:  God’s gonna get you for talking about His son… the King of Kings….  LOL!  Hush…here comes mom.

                                                           ~ 14 Years later~

James:  Remember all those things we use to say about our dear blessed  brother Jesus.  It’s a good thing that God is so forgiving and loving!

Sister 2:  Yeah…that’s so true.  We were so young and we just didn’t understand back then.

Simon:  We should have known something was up with Jesus.  He never got into any real trouble and He was so kind and helpful.  He always obeyed mom and dad.

Sister 1:  Yeah…but remember when He went off alone and they found Him in the temple?

Judas:  Oh yeah…mom and dad were so upset that day!

Joseph:  But to know know that our  precious Lord and Savior…the King of Kings….the Son of God… is our very own half Brother!!!

James: Who knew?

Sister 2:  You know… mom did try to tell us all.

Sister 1:  Well the big picture is….will the world believe this and will they accept our  dear Brother Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior?  Will they see how much God did for them so they could be His very own Children and have eternal life with Him.  Will they see all the help that’s available to them right now on this earth and that they don’t have to suffer alone or be without His love and comfort because of what our brother did for them?

James:  Oh God…I pray so!!!!!!!!!!

Did Jesus have sibling rivalry?

Jesus and His brothers and sisters

Mathew 13:55-56 “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56 Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?”

Jesus had brothers and sisters….and not brothers and sisters in the Lord….Well then again…maybe they were. These were His REAL brothers and sister from Mary and Joseph… whom I guess Joseph was Jesus step father. Now I’m confusing myself LOL!
If I was Jesus sibling I probably would be talking behind His back. It would sound like this:

Man…Jesus gets all the praise all the time. Everybody in the whole neighborhood is always bragging about Him. He is so smart and knows all this stuff about God… who they say is His real Father. How did God get to be His Father and not ours? I mean our papa Joe is really good to us. We should be glad our last name is not Jackson. (Wink Wink)

Jesus barely gets into any trouble. Remember when He went to the temple to preach and they were looking for Him everywhere? Boy…If that was me they would have torn my butt up!

He never has to do His chores either because He’s always hanging out with the crowd. I heard He’s been hanging out with this gang called “the disciples”. They go everywhere…people’s houses…the mountians…fishing…hey this is not fair!!  I know He has supernatural powers and has all this stuff to do for His dad…but what about us?

He turned water into wine so how come He doesn’t turn these rocks into some cash so we don’t have to work like dogs. You say what? He has a purpose? His Father wants Him to do WHAT??????? You’re kidding me…..tortured, beaten and killed? He has to take on the sins of the whole world and have His Father turn His back on Him for a time while He does this? Oh… no way man! Ya’ know…Being Josephs son really isn’t so bad after all!

Jesus brothers and sisters really weren’t like I would have been. At first they were not believers but then they believed in Him and joined in many of the things Jesus did. They were a close family and they even were there together with their mom Mary praying in the book of Acts.

Praying together

Acts 1:14 They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.

Message for today: Love one another…even your brother! (Or sister)
