  • 9-11-2017 The bible doesn't say, but it must have been before Jesus because he had to be the head of the household to offer himself as the passover sacrifice.

      Not accurate...the Passover sacrifice was always a sound animal or bird...not a person.
  • What became of Joseph, Some take this absence as an indication that Joseph died sometime before Jesus
    • pugwashjw65
      He did.
  • The Bible does not say...but he was alive when Jesus was about 12 and went missing in Jerusalem for three days... And he was not around when Jesus was baptized at age 30.
  • There is no indication in the Bible as to when Joseph died. From other sources it is believed he was around 70 years old when Mary was betrothed to him. Mary was 13. Mary was a second wife of Joseph as his first wife had died. Mary had step sons older than she.

      You should give more weight to the Bible. When Jesus was executed, he gave the responsibility of the care of his mother to John. Obviously, Joseph was not around or a godly man like Joseph would have cared for his wife. Joseph was not a pedophile or he would not have been used. (1 John 4:1) Beloved ones, do not believe every inspired statement, but test the inspired statements to see whether they originate with God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. [You have to reason on the scriptures. (Acts 17:2; 2 Tim 3:16)]
