Holy Bible

Matthew 1 is written by Matthew to the Jews. Matthew is also know as Levi. Matthew is writing this to prove Jesus is the Messiah and fulfills the Old Testament Prophecies. The Jews don’t believe Jesus is the promised Messiah. They are still waiting for the Messiah as I write this.

The first 17 versus of this chapter outline the genealogy of Jesus through Joseph. We’ll learn Jesus’ genealogy through Mary in the gospel of Luke. It was necessary that Jesus came from the line of Abraham  and David to establish his kingship.

Jesus is often referred to as “The Son of David” because God promised a special son to Abraham and David. Jesus is the fulfillment of this promise. Genealogies were very important to the Jews so they were very carefully taken care of. Herod had all the genealogies destroyed and that is why no one can prove that Jesus is a descendant of David and has the right to be the Messiah.

That pretty much a sum up of what’s going on in this chapter.  We end the chapter with Joseph being visited in a dream by an angel and him resuming his relationship with Mary. Mary then gives birth to baby Jesus.

    Hi Kim, I'm so glad you will be joining us. I use NKJV but I don't post the actual scripture, we discuss what we read, so you can use either version.
