Does it faithfully record the words of Jesus?
We must remember that scholars believe Jesus (p) did not speak Greek thus the 4 Gospels which modern-day Christians have in their New Testament cannot be attributed to Jesus (p). We must also keep in mind the lack of reliability of the 'Gospels' in the NT - these books were scribed by unauthorised and unknown people (thus the truth-seeker cannot accept any quotation these books attribute to Jesus - would you trust a medical book which is of unknown authorship?). Before, moving on I want to explain what I mean by 'unauthorised'. Jesus never saw nor sanctioned these 4 Gospels in the NT. A number of 'Gospels' were penned after the ministry of Jesus - all of which Jesus never saw nor sanctioned. We are not sure how many Gospels were penned but the Church ended up choosing 4 of these Gospels which we find in the modern-day Bibles to this day.
On top of this the writings of the unknown and unauthorised writers of these Gospels were tampered with during the copying process. Christian evangelical scholars admit chunks of text have been added to these books. They are not sure whether other parts of their 'Gospels' are forgeries or not. For them, any part of their Gospels could be shown to be an addition (forgery) with a new manuscript find tomorrow:
We have established the nature of the Gospels in the NT to be untrustworthy.
So why is Mark 3:35 so interesting?
Think about it, it's a quote attributed to Jesus (p) which rather interestingly clearly shows Jesus not to be God and the trinity to be a false belief:
Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother. [NIV]
Think about it, here Mark is showing Jesus is not God. Ponder upon this. In my view this is one the most problematic verse in the Gospels for the staunch Trinitarian.
If you have thought about it, God and Jesus (p) are shown to be 2 distinct beings (not the same being) AND it's teaching Jesus has spiritual brothers and sisters - of course God does not have brothers and sisters (spiritual or otherwise).
For those who have reflected on it further still you will realise it's effectively ordering people to be MUSLIMS (Muslim = one who submits to the Will of God) and that Muslims are the borthers and sisters of Jesus (p)!
Here is my previous discussion on Mark 3:35 which may add something to this post:
Recommended for all Christians:
Christians having dreams and becoming Muslims
Convert to Islam
Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim. Now is the time.
