Joseph ~ descendent of Abraham, Jesse, and King David.
Joseph ~ husband of Mary, Mother of Jesus
14 generations Abraham to David
14 generations David to exile to Babylon
14 generations exile to the Messiah
Born in Bethlehem in Judea. Mary and Joseph take Jesus and escaped to Egypt for fear of King Herod. After Herod death, Mary and Joseph go to Israel, but for fear of Herod's son, they go to Galilee to Nazareth. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet, "Out of Egypt I called my son."
As we head into Thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays, I will be reading the New Testament again to relive the birth of Jesus. (The story that never gets old). Joseph and Mary's story. When reading His story, it is always bittersweet to me. We love innocent babies and the imagine of that sweet child, and his life because we are on the back side of his story. It elates and also saddens at the same time. When reading it, I root every time for a different ending. I root for understanding of the man who walked this earth among men. I'm heartened because I know that baby is in control. He is IMMANUEL ~ GOD WITH US.
