Here’s a new article posted over at the new Focus on the Family Dad Matters blog.
It’s a Christmas reflection on Joseph as a father to a very unique child and husband to a very special wife. It looks at Joseph as human father more so than as an ethereal character in the Christmas story.
“We are told that young Jesus was fully obedient to his mother and father. Fatherhood is central in the Christmas story. Of course, the story of the Son of God has a father – the Father – central to it. But the story of the Son of Man also has a father central to it.
This means that fatherhood is a deeply divine and sacred thing.”
