Joseph and Family Return to Nazareth
Interwoven Gospels

But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, saying, "Arise, take with thee the little Child and His mother, and go into the land of Israel; for they are dead who sought the life of the little Child."

Then he arose and took with him the little Child and His mother and came into the land of Israel. But hearing that Archelaus reigned over Judea instead of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither; moreover being divinely warned in a dream, and having performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into the region of Galilee, and came and dwelt in their own city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophets:

"He shall be called a Nazarene."

Now the little Child grew and became strong, being filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.
