26
Why were they included in Matthew's genealogy?
27
Matthew wanted to underline a simple truth
28
Jesus is the Messiah for all people
29
Jesus is the Messiah for all Jews and Gentiles
30
Jesus is the Messiah for all men and women
31
Jesus is the Messiah for the rich and poor
32
  • The lineage of Jesus is comprised of men, women,
    adulterers, prostitutes, heroes, Jews, and
    Gentiles

33
Galatians 328-29 There is neither Jew nor
Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is
neither male nor female for you are all one in
Christ Jesus. And if you are Christs, then you
are Abrahams seed, and heirs according to the
promise.
34
G-d did NOT cancel the Old Testament promises he
made to the Jewish people
35
G-d confirmed that the promise of a Savior is
offered to EVERYONE
36
Romans 228-29 For he is not a Jew who is one
outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is
outward in the flesh but he is a Jew who is one
inwardly and circumcision is that of the heart,
in the Spirit, not in the letter whose praise is
not from men but from God.
