The earthly family of our Lord Jesus Christ is listed in this part of God’s Word. From our Lord all the way back to Abraham, His grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents are listed. Our Lord Jesus had many family members who lived on this earth before He did.
Some of Jesus’ relatives were Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Boaz, Jesse, King David, and Solomon are also in Christ’s earthly family. Hezekiah, Josiah, and Jacob, the father of Joseph, are his family too.

When the wise men had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there till I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” And he rose and took the child and his mother by night, and departed to Egypt, and remained there until the death of Herod.

I recently posted a picture on my blog of some banners for a Christian campus ministry that said worship teaching and fellowship. The initial letters of each word were in large block print.
