What My Grandmothers Taught Me

—Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus

by Merryl Blair (Merryl Blair teaches at Stirling Theological School in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.)
___

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? And what can Jesus’s grandmothers-of-the-faith teach us?

___

Have you thought about Jesus’ grandmothers? Their stories will lead us into the gospel, the good news about Jesus Christ. By exploring these stories together, we will have a richer idea of what the good news is.
