In this episode of The Stone Chapel

I talk with Dr. Anne Clements from her home in the UK about a book entitled Mothers on the Margin? The Significance of the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy, published by Pickwick Publications out of Eugene, OR. I’ve always been fascinated with the fact that Matthew annotates his genealogy by referencing five women who “begat” children (there’s something charming about the King James Version). Each of these women had a fascinating story and the part they play in Jesus’ lineage points to a different kind of future where outsiders are made insiders and where women occupy a significant place in the kingdom of God.

Here’s a link to the podcast (20 min) on iTunes:

The Stone Chapel is a podcast of the friends and staff of the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, Texas.  It is hosted by Dr. David Capes, Senior Research Fellow at the library and former faculty member at Houston Baptist University and Wheaton College.  The purpose of the podcast is to bring to our audience great conversations from the world’s leading experts in theology, biblical studies, archaeology, Church history, the Dead Sea Scrolls, ethics, ministry, and a host of other topics close to the mission of the library.

The Lanier Theological Library is a magnet for scholars, church leaders and influencers.  For the last ten years, it has welcomed hundreds of academics and church leaders from across the globe for public lectures, study, panel discussions, consultations, and encouragement.
