Advent Series: Christmas Characters – Dec. 2

Advent Series 2018: “Christmas Characters”

This series takes a look at people who played important roles in the first Christmas.

For this first week we reflect upon hope as we explore the family tree of Jesus.
Scripture Text: Matthew 1:1-17.

Other key Scriptures:
Abraham’s Line = Spiritual promise. (Genesis 12:1-7)
David’s Line = Messianic/Kingly promise. (2 Samuel 7:8-16)
Names written down = Psalm 139:16, Luke 10:20, Revelation 20:12

A lesson to remember: Just like the unknowns in Jesus’ family tree mattered, all who are in Christ today matter because God is using us to bring His hope into the world.
