Product Description:

Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus. ~ Matthew 1:20-21

You do not see images of Joseph with the baby Jesus very often. I wanted to capture the great love that this earthly father must have had for his son and his Savior and at the same time represent the bond between all loving fathers and their children. Interestingly, the model in this image is the actual father of the baby. I painted a companion piece to this with Mary and Jesus where the model is the wife of the Joseph model, and of course the mother of the baby. I was happy to see the genuine tenderness that came through between these real parents and their child. ~ Simon Dewey

In The Arms of Joseph

I ordered this print and found out it is out of stock...but, if it's anything like the other prints I ordered. I will love it too.

I love how Joseph holds his son so gently in his arms.

In The Arms of Joseph

Rating:
I wanted a picture of St. Joseph holding the baby Jesus and there are not many. When I saw this picture it was exactly what I wanted. "Joseph's Song" written and sung by Michael Card tells how St. Joseph must have felt the first time that he held Jesus, the Son of God. This picture captures the love that St. Joseph had for the newborn baby and ties in with the words to the song. Simon Dewey created an outstanding painting. Thank you, Simon.

I have never seen a portrait of St. Joseph with the infant Jesus. It is so beautiful. We are gifting a copy to our newest nephew, "Joseph" :)
