But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
God’s Word includes such important detail. There was to be no doubt in any reader’s mind how the conception of this wonderful baby took place.
Aren’t we glad too for Joseph’s faithfulness in naming the new son?
Jesus, a note of sweeter sound
Not e’en in heaven itself is found
It thrills with joy the heart of God
The name of the incarnate Word.
