“When they had departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, ‘Rise, take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt,* and stay there until I tell you. Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him.’” (MT 2:13) As told in the Gospel of Matthew, Herod determines to track down and destroy the newly arrived Messiah, an angelic messenger is sent to Joseph in a dream. Joseph is told to lead the infant Jesus to safety in Egypt, saving his life.
