Scandals In the Line | Misfits in the Genealogy of Jesus Christ

(Sermons Leading to Christmas)

We all have skeletons in our closets! In our ancestry there are people and moments we would be glad to forget. In the family line of Jesus Christ, a number of these “misfits” are actually highlighted and recorded for all the world to see. These studies in the genealogy of the Messiah (Matthew 1 and Luke 3) are big reminders that God is glad to turn human scandal into beauty and joy.

Dec. 2 – Judah and Tamar (Matt 1; Genesis 38)

Dec. 9 – Rahab the Prostitute (Matt 1; Joshua 2:1-21)

Dec.16 – Ruth the Moabitess (Matt 1; Ruth 1-4)

Dec. 23 – The Wife of Uriah-Whose Name We Do Not Say! (Matt 1; 2 Samuel 11-12)

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service (Monday, Dec. 24, 7 pm) – The Child of Scandal (Matt 1-2; Luke 1-3)
