Families in the Bible: how healthy were they?
“These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” - (Deuteronomy 6)



Jesus’ perspective on families: a threatening priority
He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” - (Matthew 12:48-50)



The Early Church and the family
“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” - (Galatians 6:10)
