Joseph (Hebrew: יוֹסֵף, romanized: Yosef; Greek: Ἰωσήφ, romanized: Ioséph) is a figure in the canonical gospels who was married to Mary, Jesus’ mother, and was Jesus’ legal father. The Gospels name brothers of Jesus; the Gospel of James, an apocryphal work of the late 2nd century, explained these as the sons of Joseph from an earlier marriage; this position is still held in the Orthodox churches, but in the Western church it was dropped in favour of Saint Jerome’s argument that Joseph, like Mary, must have been a lifelong virgin, so that the “brothers” must have been his cousins. Perspectives on Joseph as a historical figure are distinguished from a theological reading of the Gospel texts. Read more…
