New Series: The Matriarchs of Christmas

Posted on

When Matthew set out to write the story of Jesus, he didn’t start with a starry night in Bethlehem. He began with a long list of names tracing Jesus’ heritage as the rightful King of Israel. However, there’s something odd about Matthew’s list. In a culture that excluded women from these lists of ancestors, Matthew made a point of drawing attention to four specific women: Tamar, Rahab, Ruth and Bathsheba. Along with Mary, these women were unlikely candidates to be in the lineage of a king. So why them? This Christmas we take a look at what the matriarchs in Jesus’ family tree can teach us about God’s love.

The Matriarchs of Christmas starts December 5 and will end with a final, special service on Christmas Eve. We hope you and your loved ones can join us! 

Also, it’s WH tradition to share a story with coloring pages for kids on Christmas Eve. Stay tuned for that!
