Obviously, you have, once again, misunderstood what is being observed. I did not say, neither does the Holy Bible say, that Jesus mocked His mother.

John's Gospel at the wedding at Cana:

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, "They have no wine." Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come." His mother said to the servants, "Whatever He says to you, do."

But for the hypocrites of His first advent: He answered and said to them, "Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: 'This people honors Me with [their] lips, But their heart is far from Me."(Mark 7:6) "

Hypocrites! You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how [is it] you do not discern this time? (Luke 12:56).

Is this not mocking their empty religiosity?

The Hebrew Holy Scripture is not corrupted, only mankind's aberrant lack of understanding of it.
