Based on Book Four of the History of Redemption Series: “God’s Profound and Mysterious Providence”.
The second period in the genealogy of Jesus Christ of Matthew chapter one
The genealogy of Jesus Christ lists 42 generations, which are divided into three periods with 14 generations per period. The second period begins with King David and Solomon whose reigns mark the peak of prosperity in Israelite history. This period then continues into the era of divided kingdoms, the southern kingdom of Judah and the northern kingdom of Israel. The period ends with the fall of the kingdoms and the deportation to Babylon. This period spans from 1003 B.C. to 598 B.C.
The history of Israelite kings is not an ancient history of a foreign country. It is a vivid account of God’s meticulous providence to carry on the genealogy ultimately to Jesus Christ. Therefore, this period reflects as in a mirror our own lives today. This is the message of the book.
