“What My Grandmothers Taught Me:
Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus”
By Merryl Blair Suggestions for Leaders by Magdalena I. García
Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary – Matthew names these women for a reason.
How might Jesus have heard the stories of his grandmothers?
What might the young Jesus have felt as he heard about his family?
What might the stories of these women have added to his sense of identity,
as part of a particular family in a particular time and place?
