After the Wise Men Leave

On New Year’s Eve I preached on Matthew 2:13-23, which describes how Mary and Joseph took Jesus into Egypt, while Herod slaughtered the children left behind. I used the passage to probe the question of hope. What gives genuine hope in such dispiriting situations? I looked at the way Matthew cites prophecy to connect to the biblical story–a story that describes centuries of struggle and suffering, but that is powerfully hopeful. I talked about how story operates in our lives.
