The Perfect Arranger 

New Testament: Matt 1.17

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 1 on January 1, In the year of our Lord Christ 2023

By Don Ruhl 

Matthew recorded the generations from Abraham to Jesus (Matthew 1.2–16), and then said: 

So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations.

– Matthew 1.17 

God arranged the generations leading up to the entrance of his Son into the world in perfect arrangement. The perfect God sent his perfect Son into a world that lost its perfection, but through God’s perfect working we can be perfected. 

Jesus came into the world to supply what we lacked. 


  • Have you gone to Jesus for what you need in the spirit? 
  • Did you read the genealogy in Matthew 1 or did you skip it?
