The Genealogy Of Jesus

Matthew 1:1-17
Joel Webbon

“Among the ancestors of Christ who had brethren, generally he descended from a younger brother; such Abraham himself was, and Jacob, and Judah, and David, and Nathan, and Rhesa; to show that the pre- eminence of Christ came not, as that of earthly princes, from the [superiority] of his ancestors, but from the will of God, who, according to the method of his providence, exalteth them of low degree, and puts more abundant honour upon that part which lacked.” -Matthew Henry
