About the name of Joseph as the father of Jesus Christ
I think Jesus’ father’s real name was Zipporai (bird, dove). Zipporai’s son has been a revolutionary teacher and his real name has been Judas (according to the writings of Joseph Flavios);
Joseph’s name in relation to Jesus, is abbreviated from Jo-Sipo[rai] (bird of god who appeard):
۹In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10As soon as Jesus came up out of the water, He sawg the heavens breaking open and the Spirit descending on Him like a dove. 11And a voice came from heaven: “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”
When Jesus was “presented” in Jerusalem by Mary and Joseph, the sacrifice made was “a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons”.
A brother of Jesus is called Joseph or Jose in the Gospels and a son of Mary and Joseph is called Judas:
“Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary, and His brothers, James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?” Matthew 13:55 (NASB)
“Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? Are not His sisters here with us?” And they took offense at Him.” Mark 6:3 (NASB)
The profession carpenter of Joseph can be derived from his name or vice versa:
One etymology of the name Joseph:
Sippai [N] [S]:
threshold: a strip of wood, metal, or stone forming the bottom of a doorway and crossed in entering a house or room.
The Greek word that is translated as carpenter in both Matthew 13:55 and Mark 6:3 is tekton. It is important to note that the 1611 KJV Bible and all of our modern Bible translated tekton as carpenter. Yet, many Christians claim that Joseph and Jesus were masons or metallurgists. Lets examine the evidence.
Evidence From Biblical Greek Scholars:
Verlyn D. Verbrugge explains that tekton could refer to a carpenter, stone mason or metallurgist in classical Greek as well as in the Old and New Testaments. Here are two quotes that introduce the meaning of this word.
In cl. Greek tekton means a craftsman or builder in wood, stone or metal.
Though carpenter is the common rendering here, tekton can also mean mason . . .
J. I. Packer also states that tekton means ”craftsman or builder in wood, stone or metal.”
But Louw and Nida state that the meaning of the word tekton is simpler,
There is every reason to believe that in biblical times one who was regarded as a tekton would be skilled in the use of wood and stone and possibly even metal.
A name like Joseph in the Gospels can come from different holes especially when one wants to hide someone, because historical Jesus was against the Roman Empire.
That son of Mary and Joseph who was named Judas, has been hidden under the name of Jesus Christ.
According to my research, Zealots were followers of Judas son of Zipporai not Judas son of Hezekiah.
The names of Joseph and Mary were also the names of the mother’s brother and mother of the author of the first Gospel, Marcus.
