We continued our Advent series through Luke’s genealogy in Luke 3:23-38. Our particular focus was on Jesus, the Son of Adam. Jesus’ family lineage is traced all the way back to the first man, Adam, to whom we all trace our ultimate heritage. Adam is an important figure who set the trajectory for the entire Biblical story, and all of human history. The division that is so apparent in our own culture, even this week, can ultimately be traced to Adam. That Jesus is the second Adam is hugely important, and for us it is Good News!
