“Jesus…came from a humiliating lineage…to show us no past is so shameful that God can’t make it beautiful.” – @lensweet & @frankviola
Len Sweet and Frank Viola write an amazing book studying Jesus. This quote comes from the book. I highly recommend it. Check it out: “Jesus: A Theography.” The focus is the theological implications of Jesus’ life.
Check out this insight. I think this is so powerful.
“Jesus…came from a humiliating lineage…to show us no past is so shameful that God can’t make it beautiful.”
The “begats” are one of those passages that we so often skip over. But embedded in this history of Jesus’ human ancestors is the story of grace.
