Joseph?

Many times I find myself with questions about people I find in the Bible like Joseph the earthy farther of Jesus. The Bible tells me Joseph was a righteous man and so he must have been a good loving husband, and a great farther for Jesus. Jesus being 100% human yet he was still God has some questions that arise in my mind. So if Jesus was 100% human he was also 100% boy. That then would mean someone had to change his diapers, someone had to teach him how to talk, and how to walk. I was a boy once and have raised boys and boys do not look at the world the same way girls do. That too leads me to a whole bunch of new questions. Like:
Was there ever a time when Joseph found Jesus standing in the middle of a puddle of water? Did Joseph then ask Jesus what do think you are doing? Did Jesus reply I am trying to learn how to walk on water. I think there will come a time I may need to do this.?
Did Joseph ever walk into the house when it was pouring rain and ask Mary why is Jesus out in the yard in the rain yelling, peace be still? Mary would reply, You told him practice makes perfect. He thinks he may have to calm a storm someday. Joseph you know boys will be boys!?
Was there a time when Joseph found Jesus sitting beside the road crying holding his dead puppy that just got run over by a chariot? Did Joseph sit down with him and tell him your puppy is in the hands of Yeshua now and will no longer fill any pain? Jesus not a sparrow falls from the sky Yeshua does not see.?
When Jesus had gotten older and was working alongside of Joseph what may have been some of the things Joseph would teach Jesus? Could it have been one day as Joseph and Jesus were walking to work; Joseph said, Look Jesus see how the man puts his hand to the plow? He fixes his eyes on a point ahead of him and he never looks back.?
Another day Joseph may have said, Look Jesus see how the farmer sows his seeds. See how they fall, some fall on the rocky soil, some fall among the thorns, and some fall upon the path, yet there are the ones that fall upon the good soil. Watch and see what happens to the seeds it is the same with Yeshua Word.?
Was there a day at work one day Joseph told Jesus to gather the tools for the man we are working for did not sit down and estimate the money it would take to finish this building.?
I have asked myself and our Abba Father, What kind of man was Joseph.?

  1. I have wondered about Joseph too. Nice to hear some probabilities from a man’s perspective. Thanks for sharing.

  2. So very true…such a great man, such a mission God entrusted in him, to watch over the word made flesh grow! And yet not a single word of him is recorded in the gospel…just his obedience!!!

    Great post!

  3. I have read in a section of ‘The Lost Books Of The Bible’, that Jesus as a child, would make figures of people and animals, and then breathe on them, making them speak and move. It is recorded that he did this in front of Judas, and it made Judas jealous. I realize this may not be legit scripture, but it is still interesting to me none the less…

    • Yes that sounds very interesting but I think it is not true for Jesus was fully human, at the same time he was fully obedient to one his earthy father and to his heanely Father. After Jesus was baptized He was lead into the wilderness where he fasted for forty days. Then Satan came to him when he was hungry and said turn these rocks into bread and eat. Jesus replied man does not live by bread alone. The question would be what was the sin to turn the rocks into bread and eat? Nothing except that His Father in heaven did not tell him to do so.
      So my question about this story is would Jesus have done anything to make Judas jealous for if he did then Jesus would have sinned and not died for my sin but for his own. These stories fail when they are tested against the whole of the Bible.
      I will confess the things I have written in this post come from my own imagination about a man of God that was written about in the Bible. A man God the Father trust to raise His Son.
      Thank-you for the comment I am not rebuking you on your comment for it was made in Love just please examen such writings in the light of the Holy Scriptures.
      God Bless, James

  4. Planting Potatoes on said:

    very good questions – I have often thought the Joseph must have been the first man to qualify as the ultimate “unsung hero” What a father he must have been and so obedient to God without any question of what God required of him!

  5. We sure don’t see much about Joseph, but we can sure draw some legitimate inferences about him I think.

    Imagine what his life must have been like when he decided to go ahead and marry Mary. Imagine how the other men must have talked and treated him. Yet, he did it because he trusted God.

    Also, other than being God, Jesus apparently was quite the man. Remembering that He was fully, completely human, it seems that he had to learn how to be a man somewhere. Had to be His earthly father, Joseph.

  6. This is a lovely piece. God bless you for this. Joseph really took up a very important role by being the father of a son he didn’t father, that’s a totally different and new level of obedience, faith and trust if you ask me.
    God bless you.

    • Oh my dear friend in Christ Jesus I do not how your comment has slipped by me for so long, please forgive me? Yes I agree with Joseph was a very special man and he shall ever be known for his obedience to God. Thank-you so much for following Men of One Accord and God Bless you, Amen.
