Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers (Matthew 1:2).
This seemingly boring and benign statement shockingly reveals in stunning detail the sizable heart of Jesus towards you and towards me.
How can that be true? Over the years, I have discovered — much to my delight — that many of the Bible’s most stunning insights, some of its most tantalizingly life-transforming truths, can be found in the most unlikely of places.
Case in point: Jesus’ genealogy.
There are buried within its laundry list of strange-sounding names jewels to be harvested, gems to be excavated, rare and precious stones to uncover. In just about 45 minutes or so, you might just discover — to your own delight — that your view of God will never be the same.
AND at no extra charge, you’ll also discover God’s view of you. (Here’s a hint: It’s pretty cool!) All of this — if you can believe it — from Jesus’ genealogy.
