Joseph and Mary`s Flight Into Egypt
After the Magi had departed the Angel of the Lord appeared
to Joseph in a dream and told him to take Jesus and his
mother into the land of Egypt until He sent word that it
would be safe to return. He warned that Herod would try to
find the child to murder him. Joseph obeyed the Lord and
took Jesus and his mother by night and departed for the
land of Egypt. This event was foretold by the prophets.
