Jesus & Adam

Luke 3:23-38 — In this text Luke gives us a long and detailed genealogy of Jesus. He traces Jesus’ ancestry right back to Adam and in so doing he establishes Jesus’ connection to significant figures in the Old Testament and to the promises that God made to them. It matters a great deal that Jesus really is the son of David, the son of Abraham and the son of Adam. Jesus’ genealogy is foundational to the promises of the Gospel.
