I'll stay witht he King James version stating friends.<quoted text>
21 When his <<<family>>> heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said,“He is out of his mind.”
21 And when his <<<kinsfolks> >> heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said that he was beside himself.
21 When his <<<family>>> heard what was happening, they came to take control of him. They were saying,“He’s out of his mind!”
21 And when <<<his kinsmen>>> had heard, they went out to hold him; for they said, That he is turned into madness.
2 Corinthians 5:13
13 If we are “out of our mind,” as some say, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you.
Christ was possessed of one great propelling idea—to do his Father’s will.
Jesus characterized the worldly, disobedient person as blind, as sheep without a shepherd, foolishly going down a road to self-destruction of his own soul.
Who is really mad?
The family come out of concern Mary was noit ashamed of her son, Yes his brothers and brethern had doubt and disbelieved as stated later on ion scripture.
Do you after being told of her conception and John the Baptist also :
3He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah.
John Baptizes Jesus
13Then came Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized by him.
14But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized by you, and come you to me?
15And Jesus answering said unto him, Permit it to be so now: for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he permitted him.
16And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up immediately out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
17And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
That Mary did not know of these events as well.
