Matthew 1:1-17 – Luke begins his gospel with the prophecies leading up to Jesus (John the Baptist, angel visits, etc.), then on to the census, the birth, and the shepherds. Matthew begins his gospel with the lineage of Jesus – his ancestors.
In beginning with Jesus’ kin, Matthew clearly wants us to see two things: 1) Jesus has messed up relatives; 2) Jesus is the Messiah-King.
