“… But while he thought on these things, behold the angel of the Lord appeared to him in his sleep, saying: Joseph, son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for that which is conceived in her, is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name JESUS. For he shall save his people from their sins…” Matt 1:20-21
With these words and this command, Joseph stepped into history with blind faith and little knowledge. Revelators say little of him; they slip over him. His humanity ignored. His obedience forgotten. His humility, his love, and his servitude were breezed over because he was a supporting actor. To humankind Joseph was nearly neglected, remembered only with a quick glance or a small prayer. Yet in his heavenly reward he undoubtedly is honored greatly, for we know that his God is a God of gratitude and One of great love.
This is a book – a story – of Joseph the man and father.
