The Flight to Egypt

Matthew 2:14

This part of the Christmas story is not well known anymore, but it was critical for many, many centuries. After the visit of the Wise Men, an angel appears in a dream and tells them and Joseph to escape. King Herod will want to find and kill the Christ child, lest he grow up to become the king. So Joseph, Mary and the baby escape to Egypt for a few years. This means that, like Moses, Christ will come out of Egypt to free his people.

There are many, many paintings of the escape, as well as resting on the way. Here are a few of the best.

" 13...an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” 14 Then Joseph got up, took the child and his mother by night, and went to Egypt, 15 and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet, “Out of Egypt I have called my son.” ”
