How many of us have read Matthew 1:1-17? You know, the genealogy of JESUS, that we won't remember anyway? Where a man named Salmon and his wife, Rahab, were the parents of Boaz.Rahab, wasn't she a prostitute who saved the spies? Wasn't Boaz's and his wife Ruth a great love story? And Boaz and Ruth had a son named Obed, who was the father of Jesse and Jesse the father of King David! All of the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations; and from the Israelite defeat and exile to Babylon was fourteen generations; and from the exile to Babylon until the birth of CHRIST was again, fourteen generations. These seemingly "unrelated" stories in the Bible are actually connected by ONE COMMON ORIGIN, JESUS! Remember, all Scripture is "GOD BREATHED" and are to be read, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT JUST MEANINGLESS STORIES!
