Sermon Recap: Joseph’s Wild Grandmothers — TamarPosted: November 27, 2012
Sunday we started a new series: Joseph’s Wild Grandmothers. We’re taking four weeks to look at four women who appear in the genealogy which begins Matthew’s Gospel. The first is Tamar.
I won’t recount Tamar’s story here (it’s a wild one!). But from the story we learn that God works with messed up people (see Judah). God works through messy people (see Tamar).
And ultimately God works through Tamar to help establish the line of kings for Israel. She’s the Kingmaker, the one who helps transform Judah from selfish jerk to selfless leader.
