There are plenty of shady characters in Jesus' family tree. Today Tami Zacharias sheds some light on one of the most infamous: Rahab the Prostitute. Why does the Bible not hide this shameful story? Why instead does Matthew choose to highlight Rahab's life as he begins his gospel?

The gospel writer Matthew starts his Christmas story in a very unChristmassy way: by reminding us of all the embarassing and creepy ancestors of Jesus Christ. Today we look at one of those "broken branches" in Jesus Family tree: Judah. And we have to ask the question: Why would God choose Judah to be the great-great-great-great grandfather of Jesus Christ when there were other, more qualified candidates?
