Matthew But after he had considered these things an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David don’t be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because what has been conceived in her is by the Holy Spirit.”
Joseph was not just some average dude. He was from the lineage of David, he had royal blood if you will. He not only had the blood of royals but Joseph being a faithful Jewish man he would have recognized that it had been foretold that the Messiah would come from the lineage of David. What a dream, right? Can any of us even begin to imagine what it would be like to have a dream like this? It wasn’t just any ordinary one; this was a dream that would forever change the lives of Mary and Joseph, not to mention me!
