Joseph with Jesus

The only Jesus movie I've seen that shows much of Joseph with Jesus was the tv miniseries, Jesus (Joseph was played by Armin Mueller-Stahl). Sadly, there's a dearth of video clips of the show, but here are some pics ...

In the beginning of the film, Joseph and the adult Jesus travel to see Martha, Mary, and Lazarus to do a little carpentry work. Here Joseph hangs out with Martha ...



And here he checks on Jesus, who's fixing a squeaky door ....



As Joseph and Jesus travel back home, Jesus tells Joseph that he's in love with Mary and asks his advice ...



Once home, Joseph discusses Jesus' coming ministry with his wife ...



And soon after, he passes away. Here's Jesus in his tomb, bereft and asking God to resurrect Joseph ....



The last scenes with Joseph come later, when Jesus has left home and meets his cousin John the Baptist. They reminisce about when Joseph took them as children to the Temple in Jerusalem ...



What brought all this to mind was an article about Joseph by Nick King SJ at Thinking Faith ... What Would Joseph Do?
