He Sent His Son
This is a wonderful book to read during this coming Christmas season, to give to family and friends, and to teach children the deep blessing of Christmas or just to reinvigorate faith. Hats off to these writers who took the time to remind us all just how important and wonderful this season is!
Matthew and Luke tell the true story of a Saviours birth. We know about Mary, the mother of Jesus. We know about the Angels who came. We are aware of the shepherds. And even the wise men. We have heard about Simeon and Anna. And even about wicked Herod. But what do we know about Jesusâ€™ stepfather, Joseph?
We assume Mary was quite young. Historical writings indicate that Joseph was a perhaps much older, for he was â€śthe Carpenter.â€ť In the land of a few trees and unlimited rocks, where houses were built of stone, that may indicate that he was more of a stone-mason than a wood crafter. But still, thereâ€™s much we donâ€™t know.
