The ecumenical edition of What My Grandmothers Taught Me draws us together in a study community across denominations. In this nine-lesson study, Merryl Blair invites us to consider the women named in Matthew: Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary. How might Jesus have heard the stories of his grandmothers? What might the young Jesus have felt, as he heard about his family? What might the stories of these women have added to his sense of identity, as part of a particular family in a particular time and place? And what can Jesus’s grandmothers-of-the-faith teach us? By exploring these stories together, we will have a richer idea of what the good news is.
