  • The skewed perspective of Jesus’ family: The ministry of Jesus is akin to madness.
  • The shocking response of Jesus to His family: The ministry of Jesus is about drawing people into His family by doing the will of God.

The Warfare of Two Kingdom Powers (3:22-30)

  • The improbable accusation to Jesus: “Jesus is a liar who is empowered by Satan.”
  • The inescapable conclusion: “Jesus is Lord and has the power over Satan.”
