The Advent of Hope: Five Women and a Baby

November 27, 2011

Matthew 1:1-17 | | Series:

Welcome to Advent at Tallowood.  This year as we remember the first coming of Christ and anticipate His second coming, we study the Nativity story in the gospel of Matthew.  As I read this some weeks ago, I was taken again by the mention of four women in Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus.  That they are mentioned draws our attention.  Their stories captivate us.  What does God’s work in their lives tell us about Mary and her story?  What do we learn about our stories in this story?   There is hope for the hopeless.
