Outsiders. Difficult pasts. Powerless. Voiceless. Women.
There are five women mentioned in Matthew’s account of Jesus’s genealogy.
In a time and a place that did not mention – or apparently particularly care about – the women in a person’s lineage; when first sons were all that really mattered; when women were primarily valued for their ability to produce that first son, why did Matthew find it important to mention, not one, but five women when accounting the lineage of Jesus?
Join us as we learn about these incredible women and prepare our hearts for Christmas.
