The Christmas tale, the tale of Mary, Joseph, child Jesus, shepherds, and the Magi, are customary as we now have heard this tale every year from after we have been young ones. yet Christian culture has another much less identified tales approximately Christmas -- like, Mary being a perpetual virgin, Joseph being a widower, Jesus' brothers and sisters being rather part brothers and sisters, Jesus being born in a cave.
This booklet is constituted of early files, "The heritage of Joseph the wood worker" and "The Protevangelium of James." In those files you are going to examine those lesser recognized tales that complement what we listen within the Bible. in addition they helped me to appreciate a few components of Christian culture, resembling Mary's perpetual virginity, and icons that depict the delivery scene in a cave.
I wish you get pleasure from exploring those texts and they tell a deeper trip of religion.
