Joshua 24:1-3a, 14-25
Preached FCCW, November 12, 2017
The story that the Bible tells often reads like a family tree of faith.
Interspersed throughout the Old Testament and the gospels are genealogies, like mile markers along a road. Those are the passages that never get read in worship, and the ones that we most likely skip over when we read the Bible ourselves.
Why take the time to wade through lists of people who most have never heard of with names that few can pronounce? What purpose does it serve?
