Tough to Follow Jesus


Matthew 1:18-25 – Now Matthew talks about another character in the story – Joseph.

I like the way this story reads – “Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way…” (18). Then from there it’s not the DIRECT story of the birth, but of Joseph leading up to the birth – “he called his name Jesus” (25).

Matthew’s account is all about difficulty – not Mary’s travail in childbirth (a stable, animals, smells, dirty, etc). It’s about Joseph – and the fact that it is tough to follow Jesus.
