Joseph is confused, and for good reason: his life is very confusing. His fiancÃ© is a virgin. But she's pregnant. So she's a pregnant virgin. And that's the easy part. They are chased out of town but they were leaving anyway. Joseph dies in a river, but is rescued by friendly enemies. He and Mary are befriended by educated, uneducated, self-educated shepherds. They find refuge with the most unholy character in Bethlehem, but are rejected by the bigots who ought to know better. He is protected by his oppressor, exploited by those who presumably care about him most, and the regal people bearing gifts have really come to seize his most prized possession, the baby Jesus, to whom he has dedicated his life. Then there are those dreams, or nightmares, in which the most terrifying creatures command you not to be afraid.You see, it's not that he confuses easily. He's just an ordinary Joe all mixed up and in love with a good woman at an awkward time in her life.
