Matthew 1-2

In Matthew 1, two things stood out to me. One was the insane amount of trust which David had to have in God when Mary became pregnant before they were married, that'd be hard to say the least. The second thing was verse 23 where the prophecy spoken in Isaiah 7:4 was fulfilled and it straightforwardly tells us even before he was born that Jesus is God since Immanuel means "God with us".

In Matthew 2, the biggest thing that stood out to me was that even as a baby Jesus was recognized as king and was worshiped. (verses 2 & 11)
God was with them and protected them the whole time when Jesus was in potential danger, but God kept them safe and they trusted in him wholeheartedly.
I love this genealogy because it fulfills the prophesy that Jesus is a King!! Related to King David!
