Glory to the Newborn King Part 1: The ANCESTRY Of The King - Matthew 1:1-17
Jesus' royal credentials uniquely qualified him as God's anointed King.
Christ = Messiah
1. The Messiah would be of the seed of Abraham, through whom all the nations of the earth will be blessed (Gen. 22:18).
2. The Messiah would be a descendant of David, and God would establish the throne of his kingdom forever (2 Sam. 7:16).
Matthew 1:7-8 "and Solomon the father of Rehoboam, and Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asaph, and Asaph the father of Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah."

Significance of David
Jeremiah 22:24-30 (New Living Translation) "As surely as I live," says the Lord, "I will abandon you, Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah. Even if you were the signet ring on my right hand, I would pull you off. I will hand you over to those who seek to kill you, those you so desperately fear - to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and the mighty Babylonian army. I will expel you and your mother from this land, and you will die in a foreign country, not in your native land. "You will never again return to the land you yearn for. "Why is this man Jehoiachin like a discarded, broken jar? Why are he and his children to be exiled to a foreign land? "O earth, earth, earth! Listen to this message from the Lord! "This is what the Lord says: 'Let the record show that this man Jehoiachin was childless. He is a failure,?for none of his children will succeed him on the throne of David?to rule over Judah.'"
Matthew 1:12-16 And after the deportation to Babylon: Jechoniah was the father of Shealtiel, and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel, and Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, and Abiud the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim the father of Azor, and Azor the father of Zadok, and Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud, and Eliud the father of Eleazar, and Eleazar the father of Matthan, and Matthan the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ.
