Text Size:

T he past four weeks, we’ve looked at Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus in 1:1-17. According to verse 17, verses 1-6 cover the first 14 generations of the lineage of Jesus, beginning with Abraham and moving forward through David.

Additionally, there is a 14-generation bridge from David to the exile to Babylon, and a span of 14 more from the exile to the Messiah. On the Jesse Tree, they represent 40 ornaments. There are several sites that serve as good resources for a variety of Jesse Tree ornament sets, either for purchase or to construct yourself — just enter “Jesse Tree Ornaments” into your Web browser.
