Matthew 1:1-17, “Genealogies and the one list that really matters.”

So, we need to know the importance of this genealogy but on the other hand also realise that our own genealogies are not so important. Sometimes we might be tempted to put far too much emphasis on our backgrounds as if they somehow grant us immunity from God’s judgement or an automatic pass into heaven. We should have no false assurance of salvation based on our background.
