Currently Reading #32: Fresh Takes, Uncle Joachim


Saint Joachim ("he whom YHWH has set up", Hebrew: יהוֹיָקִים, Greek Ἰωακείμ) was the husband of Saint Anne and the father of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and therefore is ascribed the title of "forebearer of God", in the Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglican traditions.
Joachim was described as a rich and pious man of the house of Amram who regularly gave to the poor and to the temple (synagogue) at Sepphoris.

He gave them a balloon to share.
