His own brothers did not believe Him

John 7

For neither did his brethren believe in him.  -kjv

For even his own brothers did not believe in him.  -niv

(For not even His brothers believed in Him.)  -hcsb

Observations and Comments:

  1. Jesus’ own brothers doubt Jesus’  professions and teachings.
  2. People who are familiar with Jesus’s background growing up as a boy turned out to be the most resistant to his teachings and professions. This is probably true as a person tries to evangelize to his/her closest kins.
  3. Miracles performed by Jesus or the news of them did not persuade his brothers to believe either.
  4. For James, it took a personal resurrection to convince him as in 1 Corinthians 15:7

  1. These scriptures are probably the reasons The Bible States that an evangelist should not spend his time and preach in his home area.
