Matthew 1 – https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.1.1.ESV

  • Starts with Abraham
  • David the father of Solomon by the wife of Uriah
  • Just men don’t publicly shame women
  • Was Joseph going to divorce her after marriage or just cancel the betrothal?
  • Could I be a Joseph? Listen to an angel in a dream? Not divorce after wife is pregnant and claims to be a virgin
  • He wasn’t commanded to, but he didn’t know his wife until after she gave birth. Was this personal thing? or was it say the angel intervention to prove that Joseph could not be the father?
