Description

‘A beautiful thing’ podcast is inspired by the line that Jesus says to Mary of Bethany that, ‘She has done a beautiful thing for me’. (Mark 14:6) This podcast offers a fresh encounter with the women in Scripture through a dramatic re-telling of their story with some teaching and reflection. In some episodes there will be interviews with Christian women today and Christian artists who use beauty to share the gospel. My hope is that through the podcast, I will offer something beautiful to God and that Jesus will offer something beautiful to you the listener.

Mary, the mother of God of course is the final woman in my advent series, 'The women in Jesus' genealogy.' This is a re-release of this episode from the the first series 'The 12 women of the gospel'. Without Mary's 'yes', our Lord would not be born to us. So I invite you again to listen to the story of Mary this advent as we prepare our hearts for Christ to be born in anew in us. Enjoy and happy Christmas!

Listen to the first dramatic script in the Advent series, 'The women in Jesus' genealogy.' We hear about Tamar in Genesis, 38, an unlikely woman who Jesus chooses to include in His lineage. She becomes not just any mother, but in her motherhood, God raises her, a widow from a Canaanite background ( an enemy of Israel) to become a mother of a royal line that eventually leads to King David, then Jesus.
