I can hear the grumbling. ‘You got to be kidding us, a study on a genealogy? Man, is this going to be one boring study.’

I believe that you are going to be blessed as we look into this portion of our Lord’s Wonderful Word. You are going to be blessed when you see some of the great truths our Precious Holy Spirit has within these verses.

Are you aware that not one Jewish person today can fulfill the requirement of being able to prove that he is a descendant of king David. So, it is either our Lord Jesus Christ who through His disciple Matthew and now here through Luke are proving that He Is a direct descendent of King David. The bible says in the book of Deuteronomy chapter 19 we see that at least two witnesses are needed to establish a matter, “15 “One witness shall not rise against a man concerning any iniquity or any sin that he commits; by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established.’

So, we now begin to understand when our Lord Jesus began His ministry. He was thirty years of age when He starts.

23 Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, the son of Heli,

Thirty is a significant number. Priests begin their ministry at this age as the book of Numbers chapter 4 teaches us, “ 1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: 2 “Take a census of the sons of Kohath from among the children of Levi, by their families, by their fathers’ house, 3 from thirty years old and above, even to fifty years old, all who enter the service to do the work in the tabernacle of meeting.”
