There is nothing special about being physically related to Jesus in the flesh

“Then Jesus’ mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent someone in to call him. 32 A crowd was sitting around him, and they told him, “Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.”

33 “Who are my mother and my brothers?” he asked.

34 Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! 35 Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”  (Mark 3:31-35)

Mary and her other children do not belong to a higher class of Christians as a result of being physically related to Jesus in the flesh. They are our dear brothers and sisters* in Christ who are blessed because they did the will of God, not because Jesus was their brother and son in the flesh.

*See the words of Jesus’ brother James in James 2:1.
