Leawood author releases second edition of illuminating book about God, his son and Joseph of Nazareth
LEAWOOD, Kan. — Author Fran Riedemann announces the nationwide release of the second edition of her book, “Joseph of Nazareth,” which will be released this week.
In “Joseph of Nazareth,” Riedemann believes that somewhere in the vastness of eternity, the plan of man’s redemption was scripted. Before the earth’s foundation was laid, the Son submitted to what would be his Father’s greatest act of mercy: He would become the sacrificial substitute for all sins. He would offer himself in the stead of the fallen. The earthly mother who would bring him forth would provide him with the human DNA that would connect him to the human species. The Spirit would fertilize the ovum; his blood would be divine. He would be part man and part God — immortality wrapped in human flesh.
Vital to the plan would be a human father who could be for him the model of a righteous Jewish man who was raised to know and love the Scriptures. He must be a man who lived to serve God and who believed in him implicitly — a man of prayer. He would be one simple man disciplined in godly obedience, willing to sacrifice himself for the purpose of revealing the heart of the Eternal Father to the Son to prepare him for his mission. It would be Joseph of Nazareth’s job to prepare the Son.
