Was Joseph of Aramathea Jesus' uncle?
Was Joseph of Aramathea Jesus' uncle?Yes and he became as a father to the Lord after Joseph's premature death. This was the Israelite tradition whereby families supported each other in times of hardship or when tragedy struck.
Where in the bible does it say that Joseph died, yes2truth. So Mary had a brother named Joseph, and married a man named Joseph. I think Arimathea was an alias, after all, it isn't his last name, it is where he was supposedly from.
