Son of David

An account of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham. (Matthew 1:1, NRSV)

Why does this matter?

Or maybe a better question is how many generations can you trace your lineage back?

We need to know that Jesus is of the line of David and of Abraham. It is important to know Jesus is of the family of David because of yesterday’s devotional. That the kingdom established through the family of David is done by Jesus. And Abraham is the father of all nations and the one whose God the Israelites follow.

Jesus needs to establish this kinship to fulfill the prophesies the Messiah will fulfill.

Jesus is the Messiah and the offspring of David and Abraham.

This is who He is.
