The family of Jesus

Jesus left home to engage in His world-changing ministry, but His biological family wanted to see Him,

Then His brothers and His mother came, and standing outside they sent to Him, calling Him (Mark 3:31).

Did they understand the work in which He engaged? He had told His mother when He was 12 years old that He had to be about His Father’s business, which was not carpentry, because Jesus was at the temple asking and answering questions, when He said that to her.
Later, they would all understand who He truly was, but sometimes it takes a while for family to realize the work that their family member is doing.
