Read Matthew 1:18-25 and 2:13-23
Joseph was completely within his rights according to the Law to publicly separate from Mary once she was pregnant and the child was not his. His decisions reveal a lot about the character in him.
- Who is Joseph? What do you see in his character?
- Jesus is a baby in these interactions, so not actually talking to Joseph. But how do you see Joseph impacted by his part of the story?
- What stands out to you in these two passages? Any discoveries or realizations?
