You asked who are Jesus' brethren and I answered your question. So, what do you think of my answer to your question? Do you agree with it? Does Matt 12:50 not clearly tell us who His brethren are?
I don't know what you're trying to say here. Who is it that will inherit eternal life? Is it not Christians (John 3:16)?Adam had eternal life. He had God and the tree of life. The tree of life returns with Christ and guess who eats from it and needs it?
Yes, there were. Did you forget how I defined the term "Christian". Anyone who belongs to Christ is a Christian. Do you think no one belonged to Christ when He spoke of sheep?How's that? When Jesus spoke of sheep there were no Christians.
John 10:14 14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
Jesus had sheep at the time He said this. Who were His sheep except for those who belonged to Him? Jesus indicated in Matt 25:31-46 that the sheep will inherit eternal life in the kingdom prepared for them from the foundation of the world. No one will inherit eternal life except for those who belong to Christ. That means the sheep are those who belong to Christ. Who else could the sheep be? Who exactly do you believe the sheep represent?
The goats are those who are cast into "everlasting fire". In Rev 20:15 we can see that it is those whose names are not written in the book of life who will be cast into the lake of fire. So, the goats represent those whose names are not written in the book of life. The sheep represent those whose names are written in the book of life.
could the man not wearing wedding clothes be one of these who are not sincere?
Daniel 11v33 Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered. 34 When they fall, they will receive a little help, and many who are not sincere will join them. 35 Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.
