    Decent Films on Joseph of Nazareth

    Apparently today is the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, and to mark the occasion my friend Steven Greydanus has just posted his take on the film Joseph of Nazareth part of The Bible Collection's Close to Jesus series.

    Not many people have actually written about this film so it's always nice to hear someone's opinion on it, even more so when it broadly corresponds to my own. But he also adds some real gems, particularly his reading of how the film handles Joseph's plan to "divorce" Mary "quietly".

    Incidentally Steven was also kind enough to mention my recent-ish post on Colour and Symbolism in Bible Films
