What Child is This?

Joseph – The Forgotten Man

Matthew 1:18-25

 

1. By marrying her                 he broke all Jewish customs, but he                   Mary’s reputation.

18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

 

 

 

2. She was pregnant and he wasn’t the father but he                         her                      .
20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

3. By                  her a virgin until Jesus was born, he                        the Holy Spirit’s                        of Jesus against slander by unbelievers.
22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).

 

4. By                     the baby he exercised a father’s prerogative and thus                          took him into his family as his own                            son.

24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

He was               when he could have been             .

 

He was               when he could have been             .

 

He was                    when he could have                  .

 

He was                   when he could have                     himself.
