Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus
Family stories shape our sense of identity. Matthew begins his gospel with a list of Jesus’ ancestors. In that list we find the names of some rather unusual women — Jesus’ grandmothers.
Mary, Jesus’ mother
Why are these women in the list? What does their inclusion say about the coming Messiah? What might Matthew be teaching us through their stories?
