MT. 1:1-2

Pastor Rick Jackson

1. The Everlasting Father from the Father of the Jews [Is. 9:6, Acts 3]

2. The Promised Son from the Promised Son to make us Sons of promise [v. 2, Romans 9:7]

Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
Galatians 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
Hebrews 11:17-18 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son. Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:

3. The Supplier from the Supplanter [v. 2, Gn. 25:26, Phil 4:19]

4. The One Who is Worthy of All Praise from the One Named praise [Genesis 29:35]

And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the LORD: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.
1 Peter 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

5. The Kinsman Redeemer from a Kinsman Redeemer [v. 5, Ruth 2:20ff, Lev. 25, Dt. 25]

A kinsman redeemer needed to be:

(1.) Kin- Hebrews 2:16-18 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

(2.) Able- Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

(3.) Willing- John 10:15-18

(4.) Accepted- John 1:12
