“Jesus had to be made like his brothers . . . so he could be their merciful and faithful high priest.” Hebrews 2:17
Jesus displays the bad apples of his family tree in the first chapter of the New Testament . . . Rahab was a Jericho harlot . . . David had a personality as irregular as a Picasso painting—one day writing Psalms, another day seducing his captain’s wife. But did Jesus erase his name from the list? Not at all . . .
If your family tree has bruised fruit, then Jesus wants you to know, “I’ve been there.”
