Defender and protector
In order to protect Jesus from Herod, who wants to kill Jesus because he believes Jesus will usurp his throne, Joseph decides to go into exile with Mary and the Child Jesus in Egypt. There he, as a Jew, is willing to live as a foreigner (see Mt 2:13-18) until conditions permit his return to Israel.
