We may think that the Christmas story is full of perfect situations and perfect people…that we cannot related to…that is not the case! Because we are aware of our own lack of perfection! The Christmas story is filled with scandal and drama!
This is especially true in the genealogy of Jesus…HIS human ancestry…is filled with scandal! Scandal after Scandal! Last week we talked about a Rahab the prostitute...she was the great, great, great, (etc.) grandmother of Jesus.
This week I want to focus on the great, great, great, (etc.) grandparents of Jesus! These grandparents EXPERIENCED THE SCANDAL OF GUILT AND SHAME!
