The Family History of Jesus
Jesus came from a long line of heroes of faith, shady characters, and evil doers. When Jesus entered into the world, he entered into a messed up family. He was the only member of his family who never brought shame upon the family. Instead, he took upon himself the shame of every person in the family tree.
God had always intended for his blessings, his promises, and his rule to be for people from every tribe, tongue, and nation.
The family line of Joseph is found in Matthew 1:2-16 and the family line of Mary is found in Luke 3:23-38.
