Matthew 1:1-25

The Book of Matthew is one of four books that sets forth the four-fold earthly life, death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew emphasizes the Lord Jesus Christ being God's appointed king, and refers to God's kingdom as the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 1:1:

1:1A book of genesis of Jesus Christ, son of David, son of Abraham.

Matthew begins this account by writing that this is a book of Jesus Christ's genesis (his origin, source, genealogical background of lineage, race, kind, descent). Jesus Christ is the second Adam (as opposed to the first Adam who rejected holy spirit-life and died). This is what God wanted Matthew to write about Jesus Christ's genesis.

Jesus Christ is the son of David. David was the king God appointed over God's people and God promised him that the Christ would be his son and heir to his throne. Jesus Christ is also the son of Abraham. God promised Abraham that the Christ would be his son and his heir.

The word "Christ" means the "anointed-one" or "Messiah" - in the lands and time-period of the writing of the Bible holy oil was poured on the high priest of God to begin his ministry for God, and it was also used to anoint kings. Many people and things were anointed with holy oil to signify their making holy or sanctified for a specific purpose, etc., which can be read about in many scriptures in the Bible (refer to Exodus 30:22-33; Acts 2:36, and 4:27, and 10:38).
