Knots on the Family Tree
It would be interesting to know how many people skip the genealogy in Matthew 1:1-17 during a family Christmas reading. If one has small children, jumping ahead to verse 18 is understandable. Yet, the fact that Matthew began his Gospel with Jesus' genealogy indicates its importance. Think of it, the entire New Testament begins with these verses! And they are chock-full of God's remarkable grace. Make plans to join us Sunday for "Knots on the Family Tree."
