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

Joseph with child

By Garth on 3/21/2021
This is a beautiful and unusual picture of Joseph with baby Jesus (see:https://ldsbookstore.com/simon-dewey-in-the-arms-of-joseph-print). For men like me, who are trying to heal the connection between their adult self and the baby they once were, this is a great source of inspiration. I particularly like that there are no haloes or anything that makes them special. This could very easily be an ordinary man showing a deep love for an ordinary child. I like that connection to everyday life.

In the Arms of Joseph

By Sarena on 3/12/2021
I love this picture! There are so many pictures of Mary and baby Jesus, and Joseph include, but this is the only one that is just with Joseph. I love how he is cradling baby Jesus as I'm sure he did. I have bought it with two other pictures that make a nice set, In the Arms of Mary and For Unto Us A Child Is Born. I use the pictures as Christmas decoration. I wanted to get another sets for my kids to have also.

In The Arms of Joseph

By First Time Customer on 12/27/2015
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.
