The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ

“The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Abraham became the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers. Judah became the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar…” (MT 1: 1-3)

“Abraham became the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob,” and again and again three times of 14 generations. This is the way Our Lord shows us how close He is to us, how important we are to Him, and how much He understands us. In His genealogy are sinners and heroes, fallen and faithful women, people like we are. He came “with power and love.”

“O Wisdom of our God Most High, guiding creation with power and love: come to teach us the path of knowledge!” (Gospel Acclamation)
