Are you doing the will of God? MARK 3:20–35 Today’s gospel is divided into three parts: the attitude of Jesus’ relatives, the confrontation between Jesus and the scribes, and Jesus’ response.
We would recognise that the attitude of the relatives and that of the scribes is similar—it is authoritative. They want to be in charge.
The underlying statement of Jesus’ message, I think, is a call to vocation, and that vocation is to discipleship. This call is for all the baptised, a call that leads to mission which is rooted in being family of Jesus—a call to be Christ-like.
