In Matthew 1, we find the story of Joseph and how he reacted to the news of Jesus’ arrival. For a Jewish man engaged to be married this would have been very disturbing news. Joseph showed his character and submission to God’s will by marrying Mary and agreeing to be Jesus’ earthly father and provider. This story illustration will help children remember the importance of Joseph in the life of Jesus and the great character he must have had.
