Joseph and Infant Christ

Joseph and Infant Christ

Giovanni Battista Gaulli

(The picture below is a photograph of the Painter's point of view of "Joseph and the Infant Christ." the picture above is my own point of view on the original image.)

Joseph is seen infrequently in the story of Christmas and so I especially like this painting.

Joseph did not become reconciled to the idea that Mary was to become the mother of an extraordinary child until after he had experienced a very impressive dream. In this dream a brilliant celestial messenger appeared to him and, among other things, said: "Joseph, I appear by command of him who now reigns on high, and I am directed to instruct you concerning the son whom Mary shall bear, and who shall become a great light in the world. In him will be life, and his life shall become the light of mankind. He shall first come to his own people, but they will hardly receive him; but to as many as shall receive him to them will he reveal that they are the children of God." After this experience Joseph never again wholly doubted Mary's story of Gabriel's visit and of the promise that the unborn child was to become a divine messenger to the world.

I like your POV best - it's amazing how they change with just twisting them around.
