Matthew 1

  1. 1. Matthew 1:1-25<br />The Birth of Jesus <br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. Son of Abraham<br />Every Jew was descended from Abraham through Isaac <br />God told Abraham that the promises would follow Isaac’s line (Genesis 17:19) <br />God promised Abraham that all nations would be blessed through him (Genesis 12:2, 18:18, 22:18)<br />Matthew concludes with a call to go to all nations (Matthew 28:19)<br />Jesus is the Son of Abraham, the fulfilment of the promise<br />
  4. 4. Son of David<br />God made promises to David regarding his descendants (2 Samuel 7:16)<br />David’s line had descended into sin and eventually exile<br />Though just a stump was left, a new branch would come (Isaiah 11:1-3)<br />A great king from David’s line (Matthew 9:27, 12:23, 15:22, 20:30-31, 21:9, 15, 22:42, 45) <br />Great David’s greater son (Matthew 22:41-46, Psalm 110:1-4)<br />Jesus is the Son of David, the great King <br />
  5. 5. Son of Mary<br />This is a miraculous birth <br />There are plenty of miraculous births in the bible <br />Both Matthew and Luke record the virgin birth<br />This birth marks Jesus as unique <br />Jesus is the Son of Mary, he stands out against all of humanity<br />
  6. 6. Son of Man<br />It’s remarkable that four women are mentioned in the genealogy <br />Three were guilty of sexual sins <br />Three were gentiles <br />There are evil men listed, though some are omitted <br />There are many that are otherwise completely unknown<br />Even Joseph and Mary would have tainted by scandal <br />Jesus is the Son or Man, he identifies with sinners even at his birth<br />
  7. 7. Son of God <br />“Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.” (Matthew 1:16)<br />There is a distinct change in the narrative <br />Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit <br />Satan and the demons knew who he was (Matthew 4:3, 6, 8:29)<br />The disciples were convinced (Matthew 14:33, 16:16) <br />
  8. 8. Son of God <br />It was said as an insult (Matthew 27:40, 43)<br />It was obvious to the soldiers (Matthew 27:54)<br />He had a name with meaning, Jesus - The LORD saves <br />He had a unique mission - She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins (Matthew 1:21)<br />Jesus is the Son of God, who came to do the Father’s work <br />
