From Abraham to Jesus

My parents recently invested a couple hundred dollars to discover where they actually came from . Ancestry.com offers a service where you can find out your actual DNA makeup so as to see your ethnic origins. We found out that while we have no American Indian in us (which we always thought we did), there is a touch of North African somewhere in our distant history.

These types of discoveries intrigue many people. There is something about knowing your origins that excites us. Maybe it just satisfies a curiosity, or maybe it’s something more. Maybe it gives us a sense of belonging to know our history. Maybe it’s a sense of purpose; being a part of something bigger than just you.

This week we travel back into the genealogy of Jesus. Matthew’s purpose for including this genealogy at the beginning of his gospel is to show how Jesus fulfilled the specific promises given to both Abraham and David.

Enjoy studying…and enjoy your God!
