Jesus Family Tree

Old Testament names meant something profound, and were not chosen lightly. The Lord directed me to preach Matthew 1:1-17, looking at what each person's name meant. My sermon will be on our Lincoln City Church of the Nazarene facebook page in a couple more days, but for now, here is Matthew 1:1-17 with the names replaced with what each name means. This is the confirmed genealogy of Jesus Christ.
