The Sunday Update | November 29, 2015

As we lead up to Christmas we take a look at the five “mothers” of Jesus – five women in Jesus’s family tree found in Matthew 1. Most surprising of all is that in a family tree listed in that time, that any women at all are found in the genealogy. Yet as we look at these five, we will find so much that tells us about them, about us, and about the Savior who came. I believe that God has much to teach us about his grace and his outreaching heart that will change not only our view of Christmas, but will affect our walk with God and our relationship to the world around us. For some background you can read Matthew 1:1-6, and Genesis 38. But be prepared. It is a shocking and puzzling passage that we explore tomorrow. Could this really be one of the “mothers” of Jesus?
