The lineage of Jesus is full of surprising, imperfect people, but perhaps none more than the five women memorialized in Matthew 1. These women are not the expected matriarchs like Eve or Sarah or Rebecca, but the ones with hard, complicated stories. And every one of these women is just like us: resoundingly ordinary, tainted by sin, and yet unexpectedly used to change the world when they found their place in God's story. In this Get Wisdom Bible study, you are invited into the raw, empowering, astonishing stories of these five women: Tamar: A Woman Who Pursues What Is Right Rahab: A Woman Who Chooses Growth Ruth: A Woman Who Loves Radically Bathsheba: A Woman Who Claims Her Voice Mary: A Women Who Says Yes With Teresa Swanstrom Anderson's trademark warmth and accessibility, this study equips women to study Scripture for themselves and discover how to participate more fully in the story of God. Features: 5-session study with 3 days per session/week Complementary teaching videos from the author for small groups, corresponding with each week of the study Study can be used anytime, but theme of Jesus' lineage makes it great for use during Advent and Christmas Reflection questions and journaling prayer section for each day "History Lessons" providing background context Guidance on how to study the original languages of Scripture
