Scriptures: Matthew 1:5, 1:16, 22:41-42, Luke 1:35, 3:23, 3:34-38, Leviticus 20:26, Ephesians 2:11-12
Jesus' past--His ancestors--reveal much about Him and how our God sees us. The pieces in a mosaic by themselves may not appear valuable, they may even appear ugly or broken, and do not make a significant impression. But when they are used by God and placed in the masterpiece that is His mosaic, they make a far greater impression. In the genealogy of Jesus, God shares with us an unbelievable truth that anyone can become a part of the greatest royal family of all--the family of not just "a" king, but the "King of Kings."
"God in His wisdom saw to it that He would be born of a woman, conceived by the Holy Spirit, so that both His full humanity and His full deity would be evident from the moment of His conception to the time of His birth." --Dr. Merritt
