Nazareth

It is the fifth time and an intense sun shines in the sky of Nazareth and feels a heat that dries out the skin and flooded it with sweat. The carpentry of the people we are working a rush because it is necessary to fulfill the work entrusted by the wide and demanding clientele: rickety wagons that should ajustar be you the bodywork; wheels worn out by endless tours through the desert that, practically, must be rebuilt; benches for the local synagogue where the sons of the Lord will meet on the Sabbath; furniture for a next marriage consummated Tools for the donkey which transported people and cargo. Possibly the next family to settle is yours same. Jose has made commitment to marry a young woman named Mary and, from the moment in that it formalizes the union, the two are considered spouses although they have yet to have intimacy. Still not living together but Jose has learned by the own Maria that she is pregnant. His man hard work-hardened condition tells you that This cannot be; It is unacceptable and has to act accordingly. Far away the Sun of Nazareth starts to lose his daily battle with the darkness of the night and his heart almost loses the conflict with doubt. However, their status as righteous man prevents you denounce it.

If I would have reported it could undo the commitment and Mary, the woman of his dreams, the beautiful flower of Nazareth with which dreamed since his early age, it would be repudiated by all, even by his family. You could even suffer a strong sanction, that could mean him, in the worst cases, a horrible death by stoning. Jose feels pain and sadness. Your throat feels oppressed by a knot that has not allowed you talk or eat in the last hours. What would have you done wrong? What would have failed God and men to merit a sentence like this? Finally he decides to not denounce Mary and reaches the conclusion that the best thing for the two is let it secretly.
