Nutmeg family spice: welcome to Gospel Spice Christmas!

From shame to glory: the genealogy of Jesus in Matthew 1

Season 1, episode 11
30 min / Published December 2, 2019

Episode 11 -Stephanie takes us from her grandmother's Christmas kitchen straight into the genealogy that introduces the Christmas story in Matthew chapter 1. Despite the apparent boredom of such long-winded lists of names to our modern Western ears, Matthew is actually penning the ultimate Jewish page-turner. What did these names evoke in his audience's mind? What national and personal memories did they trigger? How is Jesus introduced to Matthew's original audience? How did Joseph and Mary fare as Jesus was born, and grew up amongst the whispers and shameful glances in small-town Nazareth?
That's the beginning of the Christmas story, and it is found in chapter 1 of Matthew's gospel.

Matthew 1 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)


The Genealogy of Jesus Christ
The historical record of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:
2 Abraham fathered Isaac,
Isaac fathered Jacob,
Jacob fathered Judah and his brothers,
3 Judah fathered Perez and Zerah by Tamar,
Perez fathered Hezron,
Hezron fathered Aram,
4 Aram fathered Amminadab,
Amminadab fathered Nahshon,
Nahshon fathered Salmon,
5 Salmon fathered Boaz by Rahab,
Boaz fathered Obed by Ruth,
Obed fathered Jesse,
6 and Jesse fathered King David.
Then David fathered Solomon by Uriah’s wife,
7 Solomon fathered Rehoboam,
Rehoboam fathered Abijah,
Abijah fathered Asa, 
8 Asa fathered Jehoshaphat,
Jehoshaphat fathered Joram, 
Joram fathered Uzziah,
9 Uzziah fathered Jotham,
Jotham fathered Ahaz,
Ahaz fathered Hezekiah,
10 Hezekiah fathered Manasseh,
Manasseh fathered Amon, 
Amon fathered Josiah,
11 and Josiah fathered Jechoniah and his brothers
at the time of the exile to Babylon.
12 Then after the exile to Babylon
Jechoniah fathered Shealtiel,
Shealtiel fathered Zerubbabel,
13 Zerubbabel fathered Abiud,
Abiud fathered Eliakim,
Eliakim fathered Azor,
14 Azor fathered Zadok,
Zadok fathered Achim,
Achim fathered Eliud,
15 Eliud fathered Eleazar,
Eleazar fathered Matthan,
Matthan fathered Jacob,
16 and Jacob fathered Joseph the husband of Mary,
who gave birth to Jesus who is called the Messiah.
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David were 14 generations; and from David until the exile to Babylon, 14 generations; and from the exile to Babylon until the Messiah, 14 generations.
