      based on the figure of the Torah-observant Joseph. (black to the
      scenario).

      The scenario is not based on a Torah-observant Joseph per se, nor on
      any of the birth narratives. Part of the evidence is the names given
      to Jesus and his brothers. This, I think, one cannot deny.
