And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, "Here are My mother and My q brothers!
"For r whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother."

For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation.
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.
For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren.
