the husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus.
He was a carpenter and a descendant of David
who lived in Nazareth. Joseph and Mary traveled to Bethlehem
to register during a census because Bethlehem was Joseph's ancestral
home. After Jesus was born, an angel warned Joseph to flee to Egypt since Herod wanted
to kill the child. After Herod's death Joseph took the family to
Nazareth. When Jesus was twelve, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem.
They lost track of Jesus for a time but later found the boy in the
Temple. Joseph does not play a part in Jesus' ministry as an adult.
