  1. Matthew • Jesus: Authenticated and Unique

  2. Matthew 1 v.1 “A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham:” • Must we? • Why genealogies? • King Messiah had to come via a certain family • Aside from legal issues, there is important authenticating value here

  3. Matthew 1 • Author: Matthew the tax collector • Early extra-biblical historical sources • Also fits the content

  4. Matthew 1 • Why believe the Bible? • Is the Bible only one scripture among many? Or is it like no other? • How could we ever know whether this book was inspired by God? • God’s chosen method of self-authentication: Isaiah 42:8,9

  5. Matthew 1 Isaiah 42:8,9 “I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not give my glory to another or my praise to idols. See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you.” • Why believe the Bible? • Is the Bible only one scripture among many? Or is it like no other? • How could we ever know whether this book was inspired by God? • God’s chosen method of self-authentication: Isaiah 42:8,9

  6. Matthew 1 Isaiah 44:6-8 This is what the Lord says—Israel’s King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God. Who then is like me?

  8. Matthew 1 Isaiah 45:20-22Ignorant are those who carry about idols of wood, who pray to gods that cannot save.

  9. Matthew 1 Isaiah 45:20-22Ignorant are those who carry about idols of wood, who pray to gods that cannot save. Declare what is to be, present it—let them take counsel together.

Who foretold this long ago, who declared it from the distant past? Was it not I, the Lord? And there is no God apart from me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none but me. Turn to me and be rescued, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other. • Why believe the Bible? • Is the Bible only one scripture among many?

  11. Matthew 1 • If God could record detailed predictions of the future, even hundreds of year distant, that would prove such a text is supernatural • A written text…

  12. Matthew 1 • Yeah, but couldn’t these predictions be coincidence? • Couldn’t Jesus deliberately fake the fulfillment of predictions he already knew? • Tonight, one case out of more than a hundred: The genealogy of Christ
