My personal journey through the Bible
One thing that has really stood out to me in the first four chapters is the way prophecy is fulfilled. We read over and over that things were done to show what was written was true. It's just amazing to me always that God's Word so perfectly meshes together. Prophecies written were so perfectly fulfilled by Jesus and the events surrounding His birth and life/ministry. I also think of the naysayers who insist Joseph had relations with Mary... God covers that. Joseph followed the law, and also Joseph did not consummate the marriage until Jesus was born.
I love how God provides Joseph with a place of honor, too. “and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.” Matthew 1:16Joseph was such a great example of what it means to have integrity.
