Blogging toward Sunday

On our journey toward Advent, our sermon series, "What to Expect When You're Expecting," is linked to a portion of the genealogy of Jesus found in Matthew 1:1-6. While names like Abraham, Isaac and Jacob come as no surprise, there are surely other names that are unexpected. Last week we considered Ruth and Rahab. This week we take a look at Tamar and Bathsheba.

Take time to read their stories found in Genesis 38:1-30 and 1 Kings 1:15-31. Then consider the following:
  1. What new information did you encounter?
  2. What surprises you about these stories?
  3. What does it mean that people like Tamar and Bathsheba are named in Matthew's genealogy of Jesus Christ?
I pray that your journey through Advent has been one of peace and joy. As always, I look forward to seeing you in worship on Sunday.
