This Advent we prepare our hearts for Christmas with a series of messages on Jesus’ family tree we lovingly called The CHRISTmas Tree. And the family tree laid the foundation for Jesus. But not all of Jesus’ aunts and uncles were the most proper, well-put together people we would imagine. Rehab, the prostitute, living in Jericho for instance would be one we would not think would make the list. And yet, there she is in Matthew’s genealogy. Her story is one of grace and that God can use anyone — yes even a prostitute.
