Yosef. The Perplexed Man. Part-One.

February 1, 2013

Betrothed to Mari.

Yosef was the man that was to marry a young woman named Mari, Yosef was betrothed to her. That was the traditional way that Jewish people continue to go about getting married.

The process takes one year to complete, time to get everything planned and ready for the big day.

Mari was away visiting her sister Elishevah and on her return Yosef her husband to be, found her to be pregnant. It was a tremendous shock to him. He must of thought that she had been raped on the journey and was to afraid to tell him.

So he sought to do the right things by going and getting a divorce in secret. Yosef was a good man, so he did not want to bring scandal and shame on the family of Mari. He also did want her to be stoned to death outside the village for adultery.
