When  Did  Joseph  Die ?....

 We know that Joseph was alive when Jesus was 12 years old,...
At that age many Jewish youths began to learn their fatherÂ’s trade and became apprentices at 15,...
Joseph evidently lived long enough to teach Jesus to be a carpenter,...

Was Joseph still living when Jesus began his ministry at about 30 years of age ?...
It seems very doubtful,...

JesusÂ’ mother, brothers, and sisters are all mentioned as living at that time but not Joseph,...
Jesus was once even called “ the son of Mary,” not the son of Joseph. Mark 6:3

Mary is spoken of as acting and taking initiatives on her own, without consulting a husband,... John 2:1-5
That would have been unusual in Bible times unless she was a widow,...
Finally, as he was dying, Jesus entrusted the care of his mother to the apostle John.
There would have been no need to do so if Joseph were still living,...

Evidently, then, Joseph died when Jesus was still a relatively young man,...
As the eldest son,  Jesus undoubtedly took over the carpentry business and cared for the family until his baptism.
