'There is something special about Jesus that I can't ignore...'
A new voice in the story of Jesus' birth, Joseph and Mary brings fresh eyes and an open heart to exploring the Nativity, as well as the first years of Jesus' life, through Elijah, the neighbour of Joseph and Mary, a devout Rabbi, and one of the first live to be transformed by Jesus.
It brings a new way of seeing not just how Jesus' birth was, but the tremendous impact it can have on a life.
Set at a time when civil unrest beneath the foot of Rome was breaking out across Judea. People were at unrest, fights and rebellions breaking out across the land. Living in this tumult, Elijah tries to save the life of a fellow citizen but is unable to stop the executioner's hand, leaving him with a promise to look after the newly fatherless family. As Jesus' birth triggers a tidal wave tragedy stemming from Herod's jealousy, Elijah finds himself pushed to keep his promise, to protect the widow and her two young sons for Roman tyranny and rage.
In a time where hope is hidden, Elijah finds the words of a young Jesus challenging everything he held as true.
Could this young Jewish boy really be who he says he is?
As Elijah comes face to face with the soldier responsible for executing the man whose family is now under Elijah's wing, he finds himself challenged to do the one thing no Jewish person feels capable of. To forgive a Roman soldier and live a life of mercy against the cruelty of Herod.

At a time of much civil unrest, Elijah is unsuccessful at stopping the execution of an innocent citizen by a corrupt Roman publican, intent to collect taxes. The dying man urges Elijah to protect his surviving widow and their two young sons. But while Jesus survives King Herod the Great s slaughter of the innocents, it tragically claims the lives of the young boys Elijah swears to protect. Consequently, he makes it his life's mission to avenge their deaths according to the laws of the land.
Complications ensue when Elijah spends time with a young Jesus, who challenges the very beliefs that fuel Elijah's quest for retribution. The more time Elijah spends with Joseph, Mary and their young Son, the more he questions the true identity of this young idealistic student. Could Jesus possibly be the Son of God? Was Elijah bearing witness to a two thousand year old prophecy?
When the time comes to face his life-long enemy, Elijah finds himself warring within, facing his biggest challenge yet to kill the Soldier who brutally murdered his two innocent young wards or to turn the other cheek and choose forgiveness, contradicting every scripture upheld by Elijah s forefathers. JOSEPH AND MARY is a story of inspiration and hope, of mercy versus revenge, in the years before Jesus became the Man that ultimately changed the course of humanity forever.
