The Book Of Jesus

Jack in Gordonsville

 

The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham” (Matthew 1:1). Matthew begins the birth of Jesus with Abraham. Abraham is called the father of Israel. Jesus was born a Jew. Jesus belonged in the heritage of the people of Israel. Jesus was born according to scripture. The book is about Jesus, how He was born, lived, and died. This is the generation of Jesus.

Through Jesus we receive the blessing God pronounced to Abraham. “That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith” (Galatians 3:14). Jesus was born in the lineage of Abraham and through the finished work of Jesus we receive those same blessings. Abraham believed God and God  considered it righteousness. We believe in Jesus and we become the righteousness of God. We are the righteousness of God received by grace.
