Pastor’s Moment: Since I first read the bible, I have always skipped the places where it lists who was the son of who – I just did not understand why those lists are in the bible.
You see several places in the bible are just lists of names:For instance Genesis 5, I Chronicles 1 – 10, Matthew 1 and Luke 3.
Today I just decided to read the list and see if I get the point.
I am sure many of you like me just skip those parts as we look for a psalm to inspire us, or a proverb to encourage us and maybe a great quote from Paul to energize us.
So I have gone through the list of names on Mathew 1.
I notice several minor things like that all the sets have the exact number of names, except one. Two sets of 14 names and one of 13 names – but well I cannot understand why – so I let go.
