From Inconsolable Sorrow to Joy 3/4/2012

Epiphany 2012

The event known as the "Slaughter of the Innocents" is one of the most tragic stories surrounding Christ's nativity. However, Matthews sees this event as a prophetic fulfillment of Jeremiah 31. In that context, this sorrowful event leads, not only to comfort, but great joy as Christ establishes the New Covenant.
