This is one of the most telling chapters in the entire Bible confirming the true identity of Christ as the Messiah. When you look at the genealogy of Christ you see it. Matthew 1:17 says, Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ. While this is not the only proof (and there are many), it is one of the most interesting and special parts of the story. It paints a clear picture of God’s perfect plan. When we think our lives make no sense, remember God’s plan is always perfect and we are a part of that plan.
