Jesus was a Jew. This fascinating video is about how Jewish parents bless their children:
Do you think that St. Joseph, Jesus’ dad on earth, blessed him?
- Since St. Joseph was a faithful Jewish father, he would have blessed his son Jesus.
Did God the Father speak out loud blessings on Jesus that other people heard?
- Yes! Two times God the Father’s booming voice came from heaven to bless Jesus, and everyone present heard Him.
- At the Baptism in the Jordan: “This is my beloved Son. My favor rests on Him.” – Matt 3:17
- At the Transfiguration: “This is my beloved Son on whom my favor rests. Listen to Him.” – Matt 17:5
