Jesse Johnson: December 3, 2012

Joseph could have been king—if the history of the nation of Judah had gone much differently! This week on "Encounter God's Truth" we begin our preparations for the Christmas season with a series on “The Fears and Faith of Joseph.” Theologian Dr. John Whitcomb will begin by rehearsing the historical background that led to the intriguing situation that unfolded around Jesus’ birth concerning the earthly father who adopted Him. After the sermon, host Wayne Shepherd asks Dr. Whitcomb how he thinks that Joseph would have handled life as a poor, humble carpenter—knowing that he could have been king of Israel. Was he was completely surprised to find that the Messiah King would be born in his home? God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! May it guide us this Advent and Christmas season.
