Matthew's Genealogy: The Gospel Prologue

October 20, 2019 Speaker: Steve Cowden Series: The Gospels

Topic: Sermons Passage: Matthew 1:1–17, Leviticus 25:23–25, Ruth 4:1–6, 1 Chronicles 9:1

Gospels are Historical Narrative with a beginning, middle and end.  Matthew's beginning starts with Jesus’ genealogy, and he presents the genealogy in 3 groupings of reduced sets of 14.   Matthew imposed a structure on that genealogy, obviously leaving some names out, for his illustrative purpose: that Jesus has the right to be King Messiah.
