Saint Joseph

To clarify, Saint Joseph according to Christian tradition, was the husband of Mary, who was the
mother of Jesus and therefore the putative father of Jesus. Both his life and his family ancestry
are described in the New Testament of the Bible.

the first centuries of Christianity became a carpenter, a profession that he would have taught
his son, who is also indicated as a "craftsman.& quot; He was of humble condition, although the
genealogies present him as belonging to the line of King David.

Joseph, a just man, was characterized in his family relationships, for treating Mary with the
utmost respect and support and for serving as a model to Jesus. It is these notes that
