As we recognize fathers on Father’s Day, Rev. Dr. Keith Provost joined us with a special look at a very important man – Joseph, the earthly father who was chosen to nurture Jesus as he grew up. While Joseph gets overlooked and undervalued by most people as they study the life of Jesus, we can never forget the man who raised him, who taught him about compassion, love, and responsibility, who modeled and debated faith, and who was instrumental in making Jesus the man who lived out the prophesies. Talk about an awesome responsibility! Today, on this day that is special to fathers everywhere, let us always remember the man who was chosen by God to be that role model for our lord Jesus Christ.
Based on Ephesians 6:13-18 and Matthew 1:18-25.
