Fly On The Wall

    I'd have loved to have been a fly on the wall when Mary has trying to explain to her parents she was up the duff.........
    ......." honest Mom and Dad, it was an angel, but Joseph says he'll stand by me."
  2. There was a programme on the TV over Christmas (The Nativity?) that showed that the rather delicate revelation by Mary wasn't taken quite as well as she'd have hoped. Shunned by society etc.
    Doesn't mention that in the Bible, as far as I remember!

  4. Why wasn't she stoned to death?

    Think maybe Gabriel would have stopped it, or that old guy who sits in a throne in the clouds.

    Forgiveness took precedence over stoning, so the fact that Joseph was seen to have "forgiven" Mary and went ahead with the marriage, is the reason she wasn't stoned.

    I think it was The Naivety.

    I watched The Nativity when it was on but found myself completely distracted by the fact that Garrow (Joseph) had been painted an entirely unrealistic shade of mustard.
  10. So he didn't take responsibility for the pregnancy. He was happy to take her on with (as must have been thought) another man's child inside her.
    No wonder it made the news.
  11. Good job too - she might have had to apply for benefits and a council house otherwise.

    Oh well, at least they went on to form a stable relationship.
