Really Bad News

Joseph is often overlooked in the Christmas story. Maybe it’s because we have no recorded words of Joseph. Maybe it’s because Mary did the heavy lifting of giving birth. Or maybe it’s because Joseph appears to have died in Jesus’ teenage years and so he’s not a part of the entire life story of Jesus like his mother Mary. Whatever the reason, in overlooking Joseph we have overlooked a powerful and profound part of the Christmas story.
