Matthew has given us insight into who Jesus would be through His genealogy and family. We have looked at Ruth, Manasseh, Zerubbabel, and Joseph. Now that Jesus was born, Matthew continues to look at the prophesies about Jesus and how they give us insight to who Jesus is. He quotes three different OT passages from the prophets Hosea, Jeremiah, and Isaiah. These quotes are used to help tell the story of what happened after the wise men left. They also help point to Jesus as the Messiah and tie the story of Jesus with the history of Israel. This gives a much deeper meaning to a simple narrative. How has God been planning the coming of Jesus for thousands of years?
