This movie gives a fuller portrait of Joseph, the husband of Mary, than is generally revealed. It is based not only in scripture, but apparently from the furtive mind of a writer and possibly historical notes and/or tradition. The story differs in places from what is given Biblically, including the fact that Joseph dies at the end having not fathered any children although the Bible states Christ had step brothers and sisters. He is also betrothed to Mary at a late age.
We do see Mary receive the announcement that she will give birth to a child. The film also reveals his birth in Bethlehem. The cinematography is nice in the movie and the film no doubt will have viewers looking for Biblical moments as well as making note of those moments based on other sources. We are pleased to award our Family Approved Seal to this movie for ages twelve plus. Give this one a watch soon!
