    God’s grace is fully expressed in the person of Jesus

    For thousands of years, the Jewish people revered “the Law.” It wasn’t just a set of rules and regulations, but God speaking to His people the story of His love and protection.

    God Himself becomes the face of grace in human form

    Joseph chose to lay his power down

    When Joseph discovered that his fiancée, Mary, was pregnant, ancient Jewish law gave him the option of having her publicly stoned to death. Yet while that was his right, it wasn’t his heart.

    Looking at Jesus’s family tree
