The Christmas Tree: Ornaments of Grace

Southeast Christian Church

Published on 12/11/2011

Each name in the genealogy in Matthew 1 is an ornament that hangs on the family tree of Jesus, and each name has story. Still, many of the names seem out of place. For one thing, including women in a genealogy was not a common practice. Dave mentioned Tamar last week, but in the next few verses three other women are mentioned: Rahab, Ruth, and Bathsheba. The stories of Rahab and Bathsheba are stories of God's grace for the used and rejectedsimilar to Tamar. But the story of Ruth is about God's grace for the lonely and grieving.
