The Lineage of Jesus.

 

The book of the generation of JESUS Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren; And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram; And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias; And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa; And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias; And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias; And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias; And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon: And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel; And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakiim; and Eliakim begat Azor; And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born JESUS, who is called Christ. Matthew 1:1-16

 

It is important to note that Jesus was begat by God Himself, not Joseph and not Mary.  Mary was the host, the vessel that carried baby Jesus, any doctrine contrary is unfounded.  Jesus was conceived by the Holy Ghost, no one else had part in the conception of Jesus, but the Holy Ghost.

The only begotten Son of God is Christ Jesus.  This truth must be in our hearts if we are to receive eternal life.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16-18

 


What is the importance of Jesus being the seed of David?

 

Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was? John 7:42

(Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)  Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;  And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:  By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:  Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ: Romans 1:2-6

Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: 2 Timothy 2:8

The importance of Jesus being the seed of David is to fulfill prophecy of the prophets of God of the Old Testament.

Today there seems to be a lack of importance placed on keeping a promise, a lack of character in regards to keeping one's word.  And I believe more so in America, than the rest of the world.  Our children are not being taught the value of keeping one's word.  We are flooded with songs, television and news prints regarding self glorification at any cost, lying and bragging about it.  Our courts are full of broken promises and lies.  Telling the truth, being obligated to your own word, following through with verbal promises are a thing of the past.

In my Dad's day, when he ran his business, his word was his bond.  He made many business deals with a handshake, a written contract was not necessary.  How the world has changed.  Everything must be in a written contract, and even then there are legal loopholes that an unscrupulous person can protest.

God is the only one who fulfills all of His promises.  Man will eventually fail you, but God never will.  Every prophecy in the word of God will be fulfilled.  God is the only one who can claim 100% absolute accuracy to fulfilling prophecy.

For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Matthew 5:18

The spoken word of God, written down for us in the form of His Holy Bible, our revelation of God, which He chose to share with us, is His promise to us, to love us and not to lie to us, to keep all the promises of God which He had written down for us, so that we would know the depth of His love.

O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! Romans 11:33

The importance of Jesus being the seed of David is to show the genealogical line of succession.  Here in America, most times who your ancestors is generally no big deal.  But in most countries around the world, you ancestors play a big role in who you are, like Prince William.

In Old Testament days, massive areas of land were owned only by successors of the family line.  Your inheritance was completely based on who your parents were.  Today we here in America do not own kingdoms of land, like in some parts of this world.  Our inheritance may be nothing.

 

Jesus came to earth to confirm the promises of God the Father. 

The lineage of Jesus from the seed of David fulfills the prophecies of God and confirms the promises of God the Father.

Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:  And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name. Romans 15:8-9

For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. 2 Corinthians 1:20

And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:29

Believers, we are Abraham's seed because we are Christ's and we are heirs to the Kingdom of God according to the promise of God.

 


Who was in Jesus' family?

 

Jesus' earthly parents.

 

Joseph and Mary.

And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. Matthew 1:16

 

Conceived of the Holy Ghost.

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Matthew 1:18

 

Born of a virgin and called JESUS.

Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS. Matthew 1:19-25

 

Jesus' brothers and his sisters.

Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? and thy were offended at him. Mark 6:3

But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother. Galatians 1:19

And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence. And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man his wisdom, and these mighty works? Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are thy not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things? And they were offended in him.  But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief. Matthew 13:53-58

 

Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. Mark 6:3

 


Who does Jesus say is in his family?

 

Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. Matthew 12:46-50

 

For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother. Mark 3:35

 


The Mary's of the Bible

 

Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. John 19:25

 

Mary - the mother of Jesus

And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. Matthew 1:16

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. Matthew 2:11

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou has found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever: and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How can this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her. And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; Luke 1:26-39

And it came to pass, that when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: Luke 1:41
