Matthew 1:19-25

edited December 1969 in Faith Issues
In these verses, it says that Joseph was the husband of Mary, so does that mean that Mary was married, and Joseph was her husband which makes joseph the father of Jesus?? Thank you for clearing this up.

Pray for me as i do for you.


  • Joseph was not married to Mary, he was simply betrothed to her. Back in those days, betrothed couples would be called husband and wife. Joseph was the father of Jesus in a legal sense alone, and not in a biological sense, since Christ was born of the Virgin St Mary.
