26. And I spoke to Joseph, and said: The smell or corruption of death shall not have dominion over thee, nor shall a worm ever come forth from thy body. Not a single limb of it shall be broken, nor shall any hair on thy head be changed. Nothing of thy body shall perish, O my father Joseph, but it will remain entire and uncorrupted even until the banquet of the thousand years. (2) And whosoever shall make an offering on the day of thy remembrance, him will I bless and recompense in the congregation of the virgins; and whosoever shall give food to the wretched, the poor, the widows, and orphans from the work of his hands, on the day on which thy memory shall be celebrated, and in thy name, shall not be in want of good things all the days of his life. And whosoever shall have given a cup of water, or of wine, to drink to the widow or orphan in thy name, I will give him to thee, that thou mayst go in with him to the banquet of the thousand years. And every man who shall present an offering on the day of thy commemoration will I bless and recompense in the church of the virgins: for one I will render unto him thirty, sixty, and a hundred.[COLOR="Blue"] And whosover shall write the history of thy life, of thy labour, and thy departure from this world, and this narrative that has issued from my mouth,[/COLOR] him shall I commit to thy keeping as long as he shall have to do with this life. And when his soul departs from the body, and when he must leave this world[COLOR="Navy"][COLOR="Red"], I will bum the book of his sins, nor will I torment him with any punishment in the day of judgment; but he shall cross the sea of flames, and shall go through it without trouble or pain.[/COLOR][/COLOR] (1) And upon every poor man who can give none of those things which I have mentioned this is incumbent: viz., if a son is born to him, he shall call his name Joseph. So there shall not take place in that house either poverty or any sudden death for ever.

I manually changed the link to http://www.pseudepigrapha.com/ and looked at the main page. They have a link to the lds.org site on the left, and they also have the lds.org site linked at the bottom with the title "Official Church site". And beside that link is another one titled "Learn about the Church," which takes you to mormon.org.  I actually didn't even reaise this until I saw "Official Church" and looked to see which Church they were speaking of  police

We will never know for sure, because we do not practice that ancient principle at which morals and intellect intersect: to think without thinking.

In pasadi's defense (did I just write that?), the text linked is not specifically a Mormon text, but a much older apocryphal text.  He probably just used the link in the OP because it was on the first page via a google search.

I hope.

This is a good point; I was too careless in some of my earlier posts. The text itself can certainly be evaluated on it's own, regardless of internet host.

According to wikipedia the History of Joseph the Carpenter is 5th Century Egyptian and it seems to paraphrase the Protoevangelium of James for most of it's content.

Is this why Catholic families traditionally named the eldest son "Joseph"?

I think that may be due to St. Joseph.  angel
