But he must have been surprised when the birth took place in a stable. He surely was astonished that the angels announced the birth to shepherds that showed up at his doorstep. And he was, no doubt, astounded by the arrival of the Magi, bringing a kings ransom in gifts. This book takes a look at the tasks Joseph had to perform and his role in this great event. The text includes comments on the times and customs of the period.
