The Hands that First Held Mary's Child

Passage: Matthew 1:22-23

Speaker: Jim Barnette

Series: Joseph: Faithful Father, Faithful Servant

Keywords: flesh, hands, held, hold, incarnation, joseph, mary, matthew, mystery

Joseph experienced the mystery of the Incarnation—the Word becoming flesh—just as we do.

22 All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet:

23 “Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
    She will give birth to a son,
and they will call him Immanuel,
    which means ‘God is with us.’”
