Mary and her Son

Over the last few weeks, we’ve considered the women in Jesus’ genealogy, and we’ve asked the question: “Why did Matthew include these curious footnotes?” Well, we don’t need to ask that question this morning, do we? Mary is included in this genealogy because she was chosen by God to be the mother of Jesus, who is called “Christ.” There is nothing “curious” about this footnote.

Matthew 1:16 and Luke 1:26-38
