Escape By Night

Story Behind the Art:

"Escape by Night" is a nighttime scene where Joseph, after being warned by an angel in a dream of Herod’s plot to kill the child Messiah, was instructed to take Jesus and His mother and flee by night to Egypt. Joseph without hesitation did as the angel bid, uprooting and moving them to a foreign land, departing with haste at the impending danger. It is a testament to his character and worthiness to be the steward and protector of this holy family. - Rose Dall
