Dwelling on the Word of God: Family Trees (Tuesday 17th December 2013)

Posted on December 17, 2013 at 7:28 AM
 
From today’s Gospel (Matthew 1:1-17):
 
'A genealogy of Jesus Christ, son of David, son of Abraham:
Abraham was the father of Isaac, 
Isaac the father of Jacob….
 
....Matthan the father of Jacob;
and Jacob was the father of Joseph the husband of Mary;
of her was born Jesus who is called Christ.'
 
 
This isn’t the whole genealogy of Jesus but it is the beginning and the end of it as detailed in Matthew’s Gospel.  Nowadays everyone is fascinated by their family tree.  Many of us like to delve into our past to see where we came from.  Jesus was no different!  He had a family tree just like the rest of us.
 
Yet, each and every one of us comes from the same source….God.  And each and every one of us is on a journey back to that source.  That’s the most important aspect of our family tree.
