The Man God Chose To Raise His Son And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. Matthew 1:16 December 8, 2013 Rev. David B. Hanson Deaf Liberty Baptist Church Overland Park, Kansas
Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
Joseph Kept His Promise Mary was engaged to Joseph to show their love for each other. Joseph never committed fornication.
Matthew 1:19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
Joseph Believed in the Lord Joseph was taught about the Lord and trusted in Him and followed His law. Joseph was thoughtful not willing to put Mary in public.
Matthew 1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
The Angel Met Joseph The angel instructed Joseph to take courage to take Mary as his wife. The angel informed Joseph that Mary was conceived by the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Joseph Listened Seriously Joseph was informed to name a son Jesus. Joseph knew the meaning of Jesus – “for he shall save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
Joseph Was Chosen to See the Fulfillment In Old Testament, Isaiah’s prophecy was fulfilled while Joseph was alive.
Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
Joseph Knew Isaiah 7:14 A virgin will give birth to a son. Emmanuel means God with us.
Matthew 1:24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
Joseph Was a Man of Action Joseph acted immediately. Joseph obeyed God to take Mary as his wife.
Matthew 1:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.
Joseph Obeyed God Joseph did not know Mary until after Jesus was born. Joseph called Mary’s firstborn son Jesus.
