Jesus & Matthew: The Part that Matthew Forgot

When Jesus was speaking to the crowd, someone said aloud:

“Look, Lord, Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to You.” 

Visibly offended, Jesus replied, “Who is My mother, and who are My brothers?”

Pointing to the crowd of followers, He said: “These are my Mothers and my brothers.”

The crowd clapped their hands and chanted, “Praise the Lord. Son of a Virgin.”

Then Matthew said : “Lord, here are two people waiting to be healed.”

Jesus looked at him, raised his eyebrows, as if to ask : “Can they be trusted?”

Matthew nodded.

And Jesus beckoned them and healed them. The man who limbed walked straight. The woman who was mute shouted Alleluia.

They went home praising the powers of the Son of God.

When the crowd dispersed, Jesus  went behind a rock, where no crowd could see him.

“Who is that idiot who spoke aloud about my Mother  and my brothers? He will surely go to hell and be skewered and barbecued till eternity.” Said Jesus.

Matthew shuddered at the thought. He said,

“Now that the crowd has dispersed,” whispered Jesus, “ Really I say to you, I am neither a terrible  son nor a bad brother. You can bring them in – my Mother and my brothers,”

Matthew went to meet Virgin Mary and her many sons whom she delivered with much more pain than normal because she was cursed with eternal virginity.

“Mother of Jesus,” said Matthew: “Your son would now see you.”

“Who is my son?” Retorted Mary. “Each of these boys here whom I delivered with much pain is my son. Tell your master that I don’t wish to see the one who disowned me in public and wishes to see me in private. Tell him I’ll own him only when I see him suspended on a cross for the crime of disowning his own mother who gave him birth with much disgrace for being raped by a fiend who called himself God’s spirit.”

Then she and her sons walked away in rancor.

When Matthew told him all that happened, Jesus went back behind the rock and cried..
