Matthew 1 - Outline

v1
introduction to the book
v2-16
the generations:
v2-6a
the generations from Abraham to David
v6b-11
the generations from David to when Israel was carried away into Babylon
v12-16
the generations from the carrying away into Babylon, to Christ
v17
those were three sets of 14 generations each, obviously not a coincidence
v18-25
the way the birth of Jesus Christ was:
v18-20
it was while Joseph was a just man, and thinking on how to do the right thing to please the Lord, that the Lord showed him a great thing that the Lord was going to do, and the Lord let him know what he should do, too
v21
Jesus would save His people from their sins
v22-23
this happened to fulfill the prophecy of Emmanuel
v24-25
Joseph did what the angel of the Lord told him to do
