Bathsheba The Adulteress

Leo Tolstoy once wrote, “Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” One look at Jesus’ family tree and it’s plain to see that his family was of the unhappy variety. As we explore the stories of four women whose names are mentioned in Matthew’s genealogy, we’ll be reminded of the universal experience of brokenness, and the hope that can come from even the bleakest of situations.Rated PG for thematic elements, violence, and sexuality

2 Samuel 11:1-5; 1 Kings 1:28-31
