Matthew chapter one, shows Jesus ancestry from Abraham down to Joseph, Jesus birth was a fulfillment of prophecy (see Isaiah 7:14, and Isaiah 11:1-10). In Matthew 2, we saw the coming of the wise men to Jerusalem. Herod, who was king at the time, was troubled that a king was born- he thought this king would one day take over his throne. So, filled with wickedness inside, he went on to kill several innocent children so as to avoid the loss of his throne to the new born king. This also is a fulfillment of prophecy (Jeremiah 31:15). Some people have bad ancestry; their forefathers were idol worshippers who had shed innocent blood. Some have excessive anger, promiscuity, stealing, smoking; some can’t stand the success of people around them, they plot how to bring someone down, some in their root, is arm robbery.
