"...but I did not see any other apostle except James the Lord's brother." Galations 1:19
Our families know more about us than pretty much anyone. There are times that is bad (like when your brother's continue to bring up old stuff) but there are also times when this knowledge is comforting. My family knows who I am, where I've come from, my faults, and my strengths.
We have a common bond that cannot be broken.
We know very little about the family of Jesus. Sometimes I find it strange that the Bible speaks so little about them.
Jesus appeared to James (according to 1 Corinthians 15:7) along with a multitude of people following his resurrection. Christ appeared to them out of his love for them and to unite them together in this love.
We have a bond with our family that cannot be broken. We also share a bond with our Christian family that cannot be broken because the tie that binds us is the love of God.
The resurrection proves that love wins and that love will remain our bond in this life and beyond.
