In the New Testament, the husband of Mary and foster father of Jesus Christ. The Gospels tell us that Joseph, a descendant of king David, was a carpenter and a righteous man. Matthew, in the story of the birth and childhood of Jesus, he has an important role. In the gospel stories about the public Ministry of Jesus contains no indication that Joseph by that time was still alive, and the mention of the gospel of John (19:26-27) that during the crucifixion Jesus entrusted his mother to the care of the beloved disciple, allows you to think that, in the opinion of the Evangelist, Mary by this time was widowed.
