Why was a HOLY MAN rude to his HOLY mother?
This question has perplexed, puzzled, and mystified, millions of Christians for two thousand years. Unfortunately, nobody has been able to give us a credible, or satisfactory, answer until today.
The relevant information regarding Christ’s behavior can be found in JOHN 19:26 and
JOHN 2:3-4. The 5th COMMANDMENT (regarding honoring our parents) appears in EXODUS.
Some say that MARY was a victim of the prevailing MISOGYNOUS MINDSET caused by the harsh PATRIARCHAL SYSTEM and the repressive MALE DOMINANCE.
Women were frequently STONED TO DEATH for being unfaithful. This punishment did not apply to UNFAITHFUL MEN!

And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! Matt 12:49
He wasn't being rude when he called her woman. That is "exactly" what she was. She was a woman (not a man or a goat) and He was her God. In the real spiritual sense of things, Mary is "not" the Mother of Jesus. She is His creation. Jesus is before Mary, before Abraham and before Adam (John 8:58) and Mary was therefore required to submit to His will, and not the other way around.
He is before "all" things, and in him all things hold together. Col:1:17
All things were made by him; and without him was not "any thing" made that was made. John 1:3
Mary is the "chosen vessel" that God her Creator used to bring Himself into the world in order to save mankind.
Finally, anyone who claims that Mary was the victim of a misogynous mindset must be (spiritually) blind and ignorant because Jesus was very accommodating of men and women alike. Mary, Martha, the lady with the issue...
In this verse John 19;26, the identity of the disciple whom Yeshua loved is John, the son of Zebedee and brother of James,(Matthew 4:21). Yeshua knowing he was going to die, and that he was the head of his household,and made what a man have to do, make sure that all women in his care will be taken care by someone who was able to love her as Yeshua did. So he told her to go with John and told John to take care of her as his own mother.
Yeshua is obeying the scripture: Exo 20:12 "Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee".
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.Matthew 10:34-37 KJV
Mary was a woman. Jesus was God. Jesus just called His mother Mary by her rightful name, woman!
Who says Jesus was rude? Mary was a woman and He called himself Son of Man & Mary was the woman who gave Him birth. Jesus would never go against the Commandments and not honor His mother. He was honoring her by giving her someone to look after her after His death and resurection. According to Jewish custom the children looked after the parents and John was going to live a long time. Why bring up Mary and unfaithfulness? Males throught out history are always dominent they are built that way, they hunted, farmed and worked while women took care of his children and protected his family against intruders. But to say women had no say read Esther, and many other women of the Bible.
