  • Did Joseph and his family flee into Egypt?

    Matthew 2
    1) Iesous born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king...magi arrived from the east to Jerusalem
    11) the magi find the infant Iesous in a house
    13-15) Joseph takes Mary and the infant Iesous and flees into Egypt
    16) Herod has all the male children killed from two-years and under
    19) Herod dies
    21) Joseph returns to the land of Israel
    22) Archelause reins over Judea in place of his father Herod...Joseph takes Mary and Iesous into Galilee
    23) they come into a city called Nazareth and live there

    Luke 2
    4) Joseph went from Galilee out of the city of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem
    21) Iesous is circumcised on the eighth day
    22-23) After the days of her cleansing according to the Torah they went to Jerusalem to present Iesous, a firstborn son, and offer sacrifice according to the Torah
    39) Then they returned to Galilee, to Nazareth their city.
    According to Luke:
    • Joseph never fled with Mary and Iesous into Egypt
    • Joseph and Mary were already living in Nazareth before Iesous was born.
