History of Joseph the Carpenter
The History of Joseph the Carpenter (Historia Josephi Fabri Lignari) is a compilation of traditions concerning Mary (mother of Jesus), Joseph, and the "holy family," probably composed in Byzantine Egypt in Greek in the late sixth or early seventh centuries, but surviving only in Coptic and Arabic language translation. The text gives support to the doctrine of perpetual virginity of Mary.
It is one of the texts within the New Testament apocrypha concerned with the period of Jesus' life before he was 12.
