Jesus’ birth certificate—He is who he was

luke 3

Jesus ...being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the son of Heli,...
…Kenan was the son of Enosh.
Enosh was the son of Seth.
Seth was the son of Adam.
Adam was the son of God.
Luke 3:23, 38

I was administering the AP Chemistry test to a student last week. Before he could answer chemistry questions, he had to fill in answers about himself. Address. ID numbers. College choices.

And, of course, name. Full legal name. It’s something we don’t get to choose for ourselves, but is chosen for us, usually before we’re born. Neither do we choose our parents, our grandparents, their parents.

Except for Jesus. He chose his forefathers, because he existed before they did.

His lineage traced all the way back to...himself. No chemistry or physics or biology we know can explain that.

He is who he was from the beginning (John 1:1-2,15).

This is very interesting. Never thought of Jesus choosing His own lineage! Cool.

And he even chose some vagabond characters. That amplifies his power and mercy even greater to me...and makes me feel better somehow. :-)
