Jesus has posted a picture in the “ultimate FaceBook” of: His Word.
His family and friends are all who claim to be believers in Him.
The responses to His posting will determine who are “really” His Family (those who are related to Him by the new birth); and who are just “friends” (those who are not related by birth, but act like they are, and talk about Him). So this passage helps us differentiate between the two groups. Christ’s Genuine Family, and • Those who are just online “friends”.
