CFW: An Egalitarian Perspective on Mary & Joseph


To get in the Christmas spirit, Ashley and I are sharing our own perspectives on Jesus’ earthly parents, Mary & Joseph.

“Now, not only is [Joseph] refusing to defend his honor, he is joining [Mary] in her shame… He shuts down his carpenter shop, get behind Mary’s calling, adapts himself to his wife and God’s calling on her life. His whole life will be committed to making sure she succeeds in carrying out the mission God has entrusted to her. Even according to today’s egalitarian standards, this is radical.” -Carolyn James,Β Malestrom
