Jesus is the Son of Abraham

Matthew 1:1, 17
Matthew goes even further back than David, for Jesus is not only the "Son of David", he is also the "Son of Abraham." Abraham was the father of the Jewish people, the man God called to leave his native land of Babylonia and head west. In Genesis 12:1-3, God made three promises to Abraham. He promised to give him the land of Canaan; he promised to create a great nation from his descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky; and he promised to bless all nations of the world through him.

Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham that "all peoples on earth will be blessed through you" (Genesis 12:3). As Paul makes clear in his letter to the Galatians, Jesus is the descendant of Abraham who brings blessing to all peoples. "The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed... meaning one person, who is Christ"

Jesus is the Son of David (Matthew 1:1, 17)

"Son of David" was a well-known messianic title among God's people. If Jesus is the Messiah, then he must come from the royal line of David. In 2 Samuel 7:5-16, one of the most important passages in the Bible, God told David that one of his descendants will have an eternal kingdom - "I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever... Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me; your
throne will be established forever" (2 Samuel 7:13, 16).

Jesus is the fulfillment of that promise, for the New Testament tells us repeatedly that Jesus is King of kings and Lord of Lords. After his death and resurrection, Jesus ascended into heaven, where he now sits at the right hand of God, the place of honor, to rule the world forever.

This is why Matthew begins his
gospel with the genealogy of Jesus. This record provides the documentation that any Jew would want to see to verify Jesus' claim to be the Messiah. Matthew traces Jesus' family line back through Joseph all the way to David.
