The Nativity from Joseph's perspective

We all know how the world works; we’re familiar with the laws of physics and biology that govern how life unfolds. Everyone knows how babies are made, which is why a man called Joseph discretely planned to break off his engagement with Mary when she told him she was pregnant before they were married.

We don’t expect miracles, even when we really, really want one! But that was not Joseph’s experience.

This video explores the miraculous conception and birth of Jesus from Joseph’s perspective, challenging us to be amazed at this supernatural pregnancy. God broke the natural laws that dictate our everyday lives to give us his son, so “maybe we should listen to what he has to say?”

Possible Discussion Questions

  • Have you ever thought about the first Christmas from Joseph’s perspective? How must he have felt?
  • How do we know Jesus is so special? What difference does that make?
