The Chiasm of Matthew 12:46-50
A chiasm is a literary structure where the themes of the first section of a passage are repeated in the second. The center of the chiasm is typically the climax of the passage. In Matthew 12:46-50, the climax is that the answer to Jesus’ question, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” is that his disciples are his family (Matt 12:48-49).
