Joseph's Dream

Matthew 1:20

In the Gospel of Matthew, angels appear in dreams. The first one appears to Joseph, after he has decided to leave Mary, thinking that she is pregnant with another man's child. The angel explains that she has done nothing wrong - she has conceived through the Holy Spirit, to give birth to Jesus, the saviour. Angels will appear in dreams two more times to Joseph, telling him when to leave Bethlehem, and when it is safe to come back.

18 Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19 Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to expose her to public disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly. 20 But just when he had resolved to do this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”

Gospel of Matthew 1:18-21

22 All this took place to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet:

23 “Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,”

which means, “God is with us.” 24 When Joseph awoke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took her as his wife, 25 but had no marital relations with her until she had borne a son; and he named him Jesus.

Gospel of Matthew 1:22-25
