Lineage of the King

“Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ

Galatians 3:16

December 7th

The line of King Messiah was prophesied and traced through the Pentateuch and the early books of the prophets from Abraham to Isaac, to Jacob, to Judah, to Jesse, and to David the king. This is why the New Testament begins: “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham” (Matthew 1:1).


Jeffrey D. Johnson wrote: 

Jesus Christ is the ultimate fulfillment of the Abrahamic covenant. The Lord Jesus fulfills both the unconditional promise and the conditional requirement. This is why Paul made it clear that when God made the covenant with Abraham, the promise was not referring to offsprings in the plural form, but to an offspring in the singular (Gal. 3:16). When Christ was born, the unconditional promise was fulfilled. When Christ died, the conditional requirement was fulfilled. Therefore, all of the promises reside in Christ alone.
