Portraits of Grace: Rahab

Portraits of Grace: Rahab

This Advent we are looking at the very first Christmas passage in the bible: Jesus’ family tree (Matthew 1:1-17), which highlights five women, whose surprising inclusion in this tree serves to highlight God’s grace. This week we look at the story of Rahab. She was an outcast in almost every possible way. But God used her in a very surprising way (1) to build strong and courageous faith in his people, (2) to deliver them, and (3) to use her family line to bring forth Jesus, the King and Savior of the world.

Scripture References: Joshua 2:1-24, Matthew 1:1-5a

From Series: "Advent 2019: Portraits of Grace"

Treachery. Bravery. Loyalty. Scandal. Five women mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus Christ connect threads of the gospel to the Christmas Story. Little did these women know that God was working through each of them to rescue the world through Jesus. Hear how their stories become portraits of grace that bring hope to our lives this Christmas season.
