The First Man in the Bible
A Sunday School teacher asked little Willie who the first man in the Bible was.
“Hoss.” said Willie.
“Wrong,” said the teacher. “It was Adam.”
“Aw, shucks!” Willie replied. “I knew it was one of those Cartwrights.”

Franciscan Monastery, Washington D.C. – Photo 28

Here is a photo taken on Saturday, December 29, 2007, when Nora and I visited the Franciscan Monastery in Washington, D.C. The series of 52 photos begin on February 22, 2008 and end on April 13, 2008.
This photo was taken inside the Monastery, which is located at 1400 Quincy Street NE. Their website is http://www.myfranciscan.org.
This series of photos shows parts of the interior Monastery.
I am very fond of the particular work of art. It shows the death of Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus. We don’t hear that much about Joseph in the bible. In fact, the last time the bible mentions him is when Jesus is twelve years old and in the temple. It must be assumed that Joseph died sometime between then and the time Jesus began his ministry, about age 30.
