A third dream for Joseph (Mt 2:19-2:19)

“When Herod died,

An angel of the Lord

Appeared in a dream

To Joseph,

In Egypt.”

 

Τελευτήσαντος δὲ τοῦ Ἡρῴδου, ἰδοὺ ἄγγελος Κυρίου φαίνεται κατ’ ὄναρ τῷ Ἰωσὴφ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ

 

When King Herod died (Τελευτήσαντος δὲ τοῦ Ἡρῴδου) around 4 BCE, the angel of the Lord again appeared (ἰδοὺ ἄγγελος Κυρίου φαίνεται) to Joseph (τῷ Ἰωσὴφ) for the 3rd time in a dream (κατ’ ὄναρ), while he was still in Egypt (ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ). God, the Father, was continuing to communicate with Joseph via the angel of the Lord, God, in dreams.
