Bible Study

Is this the end or only the beginning?

You’re probably wondering what I’m talking about. No I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I set out to do a genealogy of all of the women in Jesus family tree. I didn’t know where this would take me, or how it would go exactly. Yet here we are!

I’ve gone through every male descendant of Jesus since my last post and really have not turned up anything (or anyone I should say) that was notable. I’ve spanned past 14 generations to come to Joseph, husband of Mary.

I did see some other blogs and mentions about wives of these other Kings; but not enough that I felt comfortable sharing it. I couldn’t back it up with other research.

There isn’t much more that I could probably expand upon regarding Mary and Joseph that most of us as Christians don’t already know. As a mother myself, I can’t imagine the strength she had to have knowing how special her son was. She acted like any normal Mother would at times. I love the story when Mary and Joseph lost Jesus and looked everywhere for him. They were in a panic! When they finally found him he acted shocked like, “why would I be anywhere else than in my Fathers home teaching”. As they found him preaching to a group in the temple. (Luke 2:41-51). I’m sure she wanted to grab him by his ear!!!!!

Little did Mary know that Jesus would soon leave for long periods of time without there being no way of her to know where he was and if he was ok. She occasionally would get word from people or even Jesus’ brothers. I can only imagine her hurt when her and his brothers went looking for him.

In Matthew 12:46-50; Jesus acted like he didn’t know his family. He was trying to explain that we are all his brothers and sisters. Jesus didn’t mean it to be disrespectful. His intention was to let everyone know that you don’t have to be blood to be family.

We are all brothers and sisters in Christ. All of us that know him as our personal Lord and Savior.

Father, thank you for this awesome journey you’ve encouraged me to take. My work has only begun. I pray as I start more blogs and Bible studies to share with everyone. I pray that my words touch someone and lead them to you. Amen
