2 Timothy 3:16-17 The Bible is not just a collection of stories but God’s great big story of His love for the world and for us.

Magi… In the Shadow of Herod

Matthew 2:1-12 Surprise! Foreigners (magi) come into the nativity story to affirm the kingship of Jesus for the nations by the gifts these Gentiles brought—gifts that shout, “King!” They followed the star, which had kingly connotations.

Jesus’ Family Tree

Matthew 1:1-17 Matthew writes that Jesus shot out of the finest heritage that any Jew could have. An offspring of Abraham, whose line was to be a blessing to the nations—and an offspring of David, whose line was to be king of Israel and the nations.
