Family Tree 03: Joseph

The conclusion of the FAMILY TREE series. Give a listen to the podcast and then think about these things by yourself or with some friends.

What two positive qualities about your dad come to your mind first when you recall your childhood.

Jesus is and was the Son of God, yet God the Father chose a a physical dad for Jesus as he was growing up. Jesus had to grow up just like the rest of us, fully human.

How would you feel in Joseph's place (Mt 1:19)? In (Mt 1:20-21)?

What would you say to family and friends? To God?

What reason does Matthew give us as to why Jesus was born (v.21)?

Apart from fulfilling prophecy why was Jesus' virgin birth necessary?

How have you experienced Jesus as Immanuel (God With Us) in your life lately?

What do you learn about faith from Joseph?
