Matthew’s Genealogy: One Introductory Story of Jesus
Over four weeks, we will explore why Matthew thinks that Jesus’ birth/origin/genesis needs to be seen through the lens of a genealogy. We will see how a list of names helps us to understand who Jesus is, where he comes from, and what his purpose is. We will unpack Matthew’s story in the genealogy in the light of God’s saving presence in humanity’s history through the prophets, the kings and other very unexpected and often what we might classify as unacceptable, people. CEWA Ongoing Renewal: this course has been approved for Knowledge.
