Was there still a stgma attached to the term:'Isn't this Mary's son?' As an engaged girl to a respected man, 'she was found to be pregnant!'
Joseph didn't want to 'expose her to public disgrace.'John 8 suggests the disgrace of adultery. Joseph marries her to prevent this: but only after angelic intervention. In a small village was Jesus labelled as a carpenter: but worse: 'Mary's son'? Tell me: where did Jesus get the saying: 'A prophet is not without honour except...'? Thank you for sharing: it is encouraging.
