Joseph, the Stepfather of God

Summary of Today’s Sermon by Pastor Bill Rabey:

This week’s theme is the intervention of God. As God’s people, we believe

that he not only makes sense of history, he also intervened in it. Isaiah 7:10-16

discusses the intervention of God in the strange, multi-meaning words about a

virgin that will one day bear a child. Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19 is a lament asking for

God’s intervention on Israel’s behalf. In Romans 1:1-7, Paul introduces the gos-

pel as God’s great narrative history throughout history that culminated in God

Himself entering history. Matthew 1:18-25 tells the story of God’s intervention

in the lives of two young people to change history forever. The sermon is bas-

ed on this Matthew passage and tells how God used an uneducated tradesman

to be the stepfather to his Son at the grand intervention of the incarnation.
