These later accounts cannot be trusted, however Joseph is something of an enigma, as we are told almost nothing about him in the gospels.

After all, it's Good Friday.. Father Dave responds: It doesn't take a lot of presuming or digging or research to come to the conclusion that it is the most likely scenario that Joseph died before Jesus reached the age of 33 when he was crucified.

JOSEPH was by birth of the royal family of David, but was living in humble obscurity as a carpenter when God raised him to the highest sanctity, and fitted him to be the spouse of His Virgin Mother, and foster-father and guardian of the Incarnate Word. Joseph was, says the Holy Scripture, a. St. (Joseph) Barnabas: Disciple, Writer, Death. Barnabas was a native of the island of Cyprus. His birthplace makes him a Jew of the Diaspora, the dispersion of Jews outside Palestine or modern Israel. He was originally named Joseph but the apostles called him Barnabas, he probably acquired this name because of his ability as a preacher
Joseph was seventeen years old when his brothers sold him into slavery (Genesis 37:2). He then lived in Egypt for thirteen years, between his time serving Potiphar and his time in prison, and, at the age of thirty was released from prison and set over the land of Egypt (Genesis 41:46) Naturally, Joseph would have made certain that Jesus received the proper spiritual training but we also know that Joseph was around long enough to have more children through Mary and that Jesus was the firstborn in that family and the eldest brother. Perhaps Joseph had died after Mary and his children had reached adulthood. We just don't know . Luke sees the birth of Jesus through the eyes of Mary, it is Matthew's Gospel that highlights the perspective of Joseph.

Is St. Joseph's Incorrupt Body Waiting to Be Found? The Clues in Bl. Emmerich's Mystical Visions. It has been said that somewhere, buried deep in Bethlehem, is the body of an over two-thousand-year-old man. Still intact and incorrupt, frozen in time. This body is said to belong to St. Joseph - husband of Mary and foster father of Jesus Little is known about the life of St. Joseph, the adoptive father of Jesus. He is mentioned only a few times in the Gospels and never said a word. However, most biblical scholars believe that Joseph died before the crucifixion of Jesus. This is mainly due to the fact that he is not present at that moment in the life of his son Devotion to Saint Joseph is prudent not only in light of the fact that he is the Patron Saint of a happy death (the moment of death is the moment that determines everything - all that we will be for all eternity), but also because Joseph is an image of the tender and loving Eternal Father, and thus devotion to Saint Joseph - as Father Faber. The theory that Joseph had died by the time Jesus was an adult is given further credibility by the fact that Jesus, when He was on the cross, made arrangements for His mother to be cared for by the apostle John (John 19:26-27). Joseph must have been dead by the time of the crucifixion, or Jesus would never have committed Mary to John And, the reason I'm writing this is just because if, he did work with Jesus, when Jesus was of age (say 14-15, I think), then St. Joseph ,although he was the best man to swing a hammer in human history, probably would have had a rough time doing it into his 60's.

Of course, St. Joseph has been a figure of theological interest for centuries. But only in the 20th century did some people start to gather the Church's insights about him into a sub-discipline of its own.

Where was St Joseph when Jesus was crucified? Avoiding Bethlehem and possible actions by Herod's successor, Joseph , Mary and Jesus settled in Nazareth, in Galilee. The Gospels describe Joseph as a tekton, which traditionally has meant carpenter, and it is assumed that Joseph taught his craft to Jesus in Nazareth Since Joseph does not appear in Jesus' public life, at his death, or resurrection, many historians believe Joseph probably had died before Jesus entered public ministry.
