Sermon Notes

Matthew 1:1-17

The names and titles attributed to Jesus in the first chapter of Matthew go a long way in defining his mission and ministry to a lost and hurting world.  We begin this morning by considering the significance of his genealogy.

  • The Son of Abraham
  • The Son of David
  • The Son of Zerubbabel
  • The Son of Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary

By coming into the world, Jesus related himself to all of humankind— men & women, rich & poor, Jew & Gentile, immoral & pure.  By God’s design, there is no barrier to keep any person from receiving Jesus as Savior and Lord!
