Overview

While the virgin birth may be difficult to explain in a secular culture like New York today, imagine what it was like for Jesus’ earthly father, Joseph, in a small Jewish village like Nazareth. The gossip alone had to have been deeply shaming. Joseph’s capacity to endure the personal scandal Mary’s pregnancy represented must have been due to the angelic news that his son’s ultimate Father was none other than God himself. To underscore this, Joseph’s son would not take his name, which would have been expected, but the name “Jesus” because “he would save his people from their sins.”
