“Can I Introduce You?”
The first 17 verses of Matthew's gospel is a genealogy that, ultimately, leads to Jesus. The first 17 verses are also Matthew's way of introducing God's family. More often than not we overlook or bypass the lists of names in scripture because they are too hard to pronounce or are insignificant. But look closely and you'll see God at work in these people's lives, reminding us that God acts in and through us — and God wants to act in and through our lives.
