The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham (Matthew 1.1)
The Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah
The genealogy of Jesus is a testimony to God’s faithfulness. When He promises something, He delivers. The passage begins with two key figures in the Old Testament: David and Abraham. They were both promised generations that would ultimately lead to blessing the whole earth. They looked forward to the coming of Jesus the Messiah and King. Now the promise continues to march through the generations both physically and spiritually. I’m so proud of my two sons and look forward to having grandchildren who will inherit the promises of God through Christ. And I have already become a great, great, grandfather spiritually by intentionally investing the life of Jesus in a few men and women. The genealogy of Jesus gets pretty exciting when you become part of it!
