In this episode we’ll talk with Dr. David Lewis, professor of exegetical theology and Dr. Joel Okamoto, professor of systematic theology at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. We’ll explore the significance of the five women listed in the genealogy of Jesus and the larger message their inclusion signals. In Matthew’s Gospel, they are the first in a series of outcasts that Jesus draws into his church. “When you read the genealogy and see those women, it's not really obvious why they're there… it's kind of a slow reveal.” Dr. Lewis
