The Imitate their Faith last night brought out that, never mind, I'll show you:
Question: and how might Joseph have felt about his son’s words? (in part)
He answered his parents in simple sincerity: “Why did you have to go looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in the house of my Father?”—Luke 2:49.But he said to them: “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in the house of my Father?”
26 Joseph surely thought about those words many times. Perhaps he came to beam with pride over them. After all, he had worked diligently to teach his adopted son to feel that way about Jehovah God. By that time in his life as a boy, Jesus already had warm feelings about the word “father”—feelings shaped largely by his years with Joseph.
Joseph didn't understand when Jesus said he was in his father's house...Joseph was most likely saying...Ah,, Son, I'm your father, & this isn't my house. Duh? Now we see the society .....running beyond the scriptures or just making stuff up. Also, what came to my mind, at the meeting was when Luke Skywalkers father said....I'm am your Father...I was cracking up to myself inside.
Back to my topic....So am I the only one that saw this ? Just one more scripture away, would have destroyed the societies take on how they felt Joseph felt about what Jesus said. Joseph was an imperfect human, who had human thoughts...& no doubt he thought...again, I say, Son, this isn't my home. So the scriptures don't say that but they do say, Joseph (& Mary) didn't understand. AKA: Just didn't know what to say.
Anyone catch this ?
