1. Explain the background of Jesus Christ, the Son of David with reference to Matthew’s Genealogy.
“ The book of the genealogy of JESUS CHRIST, the son of David, the Son of Abraham”( Matt.1;1).

Matthew’s account of Genealogy of Jesus Christ:

1. Abraham 15. Solomon 29. Salathiel
2. Isaac 16. Roboam 30. Zorobabel
3. Jacob 17. Abia 31. Abiud
4. Judas 18. Asa 32. Eliakim
5. Phares 17. Josaphat 33. Azor
6. Esron 18. Joram 34. Sadoc
7. Aram 19. Ozias 35. Achim
8. Aminadab 20. Joatham 36. Eliud
9. Naasson 21. Achaz 37. Eleazar
10. Salmon 22. Ezekias 38. Matthan
11. Boaz 23. Manasses 39. Jacob
12. Obed 24. Amon 40. Joseph
13. Jesse 25. Josias 41. Mary
14. David 26. Jechonias 42. Jesus

  1. His account has 42 names in it.
  2. He traces the line forward in time from Abraham, the father of the Hebrew race,To Joseph ( See Gal. 3;160.
  3. He traces the line from David through his son solomon ( 2. Samuel 12:24).
  4. He gives the line of Joseph.

Study note:

The genealogy of Jesus Christ, according to His disciple Matthew is remarkable for the some reasons:

  1. It contains the names of four women and one good virgin.
  2. All four women had negative backgrounds:
  1. Tamar – was an ex- harlot ( Mt. 1;3; Gen. 38:13- 30)
  2. Rahab – was an ex- harlot ( Mt. 1:5; Josh. 2:1)
  3. Ruth - was a former pagan ( Mt. 1:5; Ruth 1;4)
  4. Bath- sheba – was a former adulteress ( Mt. 1:6)

By the grace of God, they all were listed in the Genealogy of Jesus Christ. The fifth woman was a virgin, who became the mother of Jesus. Jesus’ Father is God the Father. Matthew’s Gospel opens the genealogy of Jesus Christ that traces ancestral lineage through the paternal line ( the line of Joseph) as was Jewish custom (v.16). Although Joseph was not Jesus’ biological father (v. 20), he was his legal father.

Since God had promised that Messiah would be a descendant of Abraham ( Gen. 12:3; 22: 18; Gal. 3:16 ) and David ( 2 Sam. 7: 12-19); Jer. 23:5); Matthew traces Jesus legal lineage back to these two men in order to demonstrate in the Jews that Jesus had the proper genealogy to qualify as the Messiah.

The virgin birth of Jesus was very important. Our Redeemer Jesus, to bring salvation, He must be, in one person, fully human, sinless and fully divine ( Heb. 7; 25- 26). The virgin birth satisfies all three of these requirements:

  1. The only way Jesus could be born a human being was to be born of woman;
  2. The only way He could be sinless was to be conceived by the Holy Spirit( 1: 20 cf. Heb. 4: 15)
  3. The only way He could be divine was to have God as His Father.

Jesus Christ is therefore revealed to us as one divine person with two natures – divine and sinless human. Therefore, according to genealogy, Jesus was born as the Royal Son of God, coming from the seed of Abraham , who was made righteous by faith in the Almighty God, and through David, He came in the royal families of these Godly men.
