Deuteronomy 21:18-21 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

The Stubborn and Rebellious Son. 18 If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not listen to his father or mother, and will not listen to them even though they discipline him, 19 his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders at the gate[a] of his home city, 20 where they shall say to the elders of the city, “This son of ours is a stubborn and rebellious fellow who will not listen to us; he is a glutton and a drunkard.” 21 Then all his fellow citizens shall stone him to death. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst, and all Israel will hear and be afraid.

Footnotes:

  1. 21:19 The gate: in the city walls. This open space served as the forum for the administration of justice. Cf. 22:15; 25:7; Ru 4:1, 2, 11; Is 29:21; Am 5:10, 12, 15.

Ben Sira 3:1-16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 3

Responsibilities to Parents[a]

Children, listen to me, your father;
    act accordingly, that you may be safe.
For the Lord sets a father in honor over his children
    and confirms a mother’s authority over her sons.
Those who honor their father atone for sins;
    they store up riches who respect their mother.
Those who honor their father will have joy in their own children,
    and when they pray they are heard.
Those who respect their father will live a long life;
    those who obey the Lord honor their mother.

Those who fear the Lord honor their father,
    and serve their parents as masters.
In word and deed honor your father,
    that all blessings may come to you.
A father’s blessing gives a person firm roots,
    but a mother’s curse uproots the growing plant.
10 Do not glory in your father’s disgrace,
    for that is no glory to you!
11 A father’s glory is glory also for oneself;
    they multiply sin who demean their mother.

12 My son, be steadfast in honoring your father;
    do not grieve him as long as he lives.
13 Even if his mind fails, be considerate of him;
    do not revile him because you are in your prime.
14 Kindness to a father will not be forgotten;
    it will serve as a sin offering—it will take lasting root.
15 In time of trouble it will be recalled to your advantage,
    like warmth upon frost it will melt away your sins.
16 Those who neglect their father are like blasphemers;
    those who provoke their mother are accursed by their Creator.

Footnotes:

  1. 3:1–16 Besides the virtues that must characterize our conduct toward God, special duties are enjoined, such as honor and respect toward parents, with corresponding blessings (vv. 1–9). By showing such respect especially to old and infirm parents (vv. 10–13), the sins of children are pardoned (vv. 14–15). Failure to honor father and mother is blasphemy and merits a curse from God (v. 16). Cf. Ex 20:12; Eph 6:2–3.

Matthew 10:34-39 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Jesus: A Cause of Division. 34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth. I have come to bring not peace but the sword. 35 For I have come to set

a man ‘against his father,
    a daughter against her mother,
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
36     and one’s enemies will be those of his household.’

The Conditions of Discipleship. 37 “Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; 38 and whoever does not take up his cross[a] and follow after me is not worthy of me. 39 [b]Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

Footnotes:

  1. 10:38 The first mention of the cross in Matthew, explicitly that of the disciple, but implicitly that of Jesus (and follow after me). Crucifixion was a form of capital punishment used by the Romans for offenders who were not Roman citizens.
  2. 10:39 One who denies Jesus in order to save one’s earthly life will be condemned to everlasting destruction; loss of earthly life for Jesus’ sake will be rewarded by everlasting life in the kingdom.

Matthew 12:46-50 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

46 While he was still speaking to the crowds, his mother and his brothers appeared outside, wishing to speak with him. 47 [Someone told him, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, asking to speak with you.”][a] 48 But he said in reply to the one who told him, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” 49 And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. 50 For whoever does the will of my heavenly Father is my brother, and sister, and mother.”

Mark 3:31-35 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Jesus and His Family. 31 His mother and his brothers arrived. Standing outside they sent word to him and called him. 32 A crowd seated around him told him, “Your mother and your brothers[a] [and your sisters] are outside asking for you.” 33 But he said to them in reply, “Who are my mother and [my] brothers?” 34 And looking around at those seated in the circle he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. 35 [For] whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.”

Luke 8:19-21 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

19 Then his mother and his brothers[a] came to him but were unable to join him because of the crowd. 20 He was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and they wish to see you.” 21 He said to them in reply, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it.”[b]

The Calming of a Storm at Sea.

Footnotes:

  1. 8:19 His brothers: see note on Mk 6:3.
  2. 8:21 The family of Jesus is not constituted by physical relationship with him but by obedience to the word of God. In this, Luke agrees with the Marcan parallel (Mk 3:31–35), although by omitting Mk 3:33 and especially Mk 3:20–21 Luke has softened the Marcan picture of Jesus’ natural family. Probably he did this because Mary has already been presented in Lk 1:38 as the obedient handmaid of the Lord who fulfills the requirement for belonging to the eschatological family of Jesus; cf. also Lk 11:27–28.

Luke 14:26 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

26 “If any one comes to me without hating his father[a] and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.

Footnotes:

  1. 14:26 Hating his father…: cf. the similar saying in Mt 10:37. The disciple’s family must take second place to the absolute dedication involved in following Jesus (see also Lk 9:59–62).

Children and Parents.
