I Am From

Dec 30, 2018 | Amy Epp, Christmas, Sermons

Pastor Amy looks at those first 18 verses of Matthew that we usually skip over to get to the narrative.  But that first list of begats tell a story of their own.  They tell the story of who Jesus came from, especially the significant and unusual women in his family tree.  And they look forward to the kind of people whom Jesus will make his family as he grows from baby in the manger into the teacher and leader he becomes.
