Day Three: Joseph I always find it interesting that Mary cannot be without Joseph in a nativity. The same is true i the biblical story. Now, we could get analytical and talk about how men were in charge and talk about a lonely woman pregnant in 1st century would need a man– but honestly–i think Joseph is meant to be there for a bigger purpose. Though the Bible doesn’t contain but one story about Jesus’ parents instructing him, I’m sure Joseph did the best he could raising the Son of God. He was still a child at some point and the rest of the world thought Joseph was just being a nice guy taking in a woman who was pregnant before wedlock and raising the child.
So this day I remember Jesus’ earthly father. The man to who stood tall.
