COMMENTS & QUESTIONS
Matthew breaks the Israelite history into 3 main sections.
What are these sections?
Abraham --> David (The Exodus and Judges)
David --> Jechoniah (The Kings)
Jechoniah --> Jesus (The Intertestamental period)
Pray for people who don’t know the story of Jesus. Pray that they will come to know Him
Thanks for the Old Testament which tells us the History of the Jews. We can understand the reason why Jesus came to earth
