The Christmas Genealogy

This is part of a series of posts under the Sunday Breakfast category. In these posts I share what I learn in church every Sunday; Bible messages that really ministered to me on a particular Sunday. All Bible references

Hezron the father of Ram,
4 Ram the father of Amminadab,
Amminadab the father of Nahshon,

So here goes the sermon that he presented with some things that I’ve added as my thoughts: Read More
