The Remarkable Story of Joseph the Carpenter

Source: Messages of Christ via YouTube

Joseph, the adoptive father of Jesus Christ, is perhaps one of the most overlooked characters in the life of the Saviour and the story of the Nativity. Yet, there is no question that Joseph left a powerful impact on Jesus, Mary, and their other children. He was a man of solid conviction. His love for Mary, the mother of Jesus, is unmatched. Because Joseph’s story is only covered in four chapters of the Bible and he most likely died before the ministry of the Saviour, we often gloss over him, and sadly miss the powerful witness he left of his adopted son, the Messiah of the world.
