Matthew 1: Jesus--Son of Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth
Show Notes

Matthew 1:1-6

Matthew handles this genealogy a bit differently than the one he calls to mind toward the beginning of Genesis. Matthew includes some of the mothers. But what a shocking group of mothers: Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth. He also includes the one who had been the wife of Uriah. These are shocking stories and connections to bring up at the beginning of a book designed to claim the main character is the Messiah, the Christ, the Savior of the Jews and the entire world. Andrew and Edwin discuss how amazing this is and what great support for the truth of this account we find in these admissions.
