The eyes of Joseph

Geoff AckmanGeoff Ackman, December 9, 2018
Part of the Christmas through the eyes of series, preached at a Salt Church gathering

Everyone has a different take on Christmas and what it's all about. In this series we're looking at Christmas through the eyes of some of the first people who were there. We're starting with Joseph - his Christmas got off to a real bad start, before it became a cause for celebration.

Matthew 1:18–25 (Listen)

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19 And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. 20 But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:

23   “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
    and they shall call his name Immanuel”

(which means, God with us). 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25 but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.
