Summary

Joseph was given the great responsibility of being the earthly father of the Son of God! He knew that he was a sinner, deserving of the punishment of God upon him, but he also believed what God had spoken – that this child was the promised Saviour. God chose Joseph to care for this boy, who was to die for the sins of the world.
