Fourteen, Double Perfection

The prophet Jeremiah preached deliverance would come from a man he called “the Branch.” (Jeremiah 33:15,16)

WHO IS THAT?

Follow the royal family tree:

….Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab,

Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth,

Obed the father of Jesse,

and Jesse the father of King David.

David was the father of Solomon, whose mother had been Uriah’s wife,

Go up the family tree to the fourteenth branch:

……and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary,

and Mary was the mother of Jesus

who is called The MESSIAH.”

(Matthew 1:1, 5, 6, 16 NIV)

And there you have the royal family tree.

But wait! There’s something going on here about the NUMBER 14!

THERE WERE:

FOURTEEN GENERATIONS FROM ABRAHAM TO KING DAVID,

FOURTEEN GENERATIONS FROM KING DAVID TO THE CAPTIVITY IN BABYLON,

AND FOURTEEN GENERATIONS FROM BABYLON TO JESUS CHRIST.
(Matthew 1:1-17)


Jesus claimed to be the Son of God AND the Son of Man, the Son of David, our Redeemer.

Seven represents completion – thus 7 + 7 = 14, indicating a double completion:

Jesus’ ministry in the flesh was completed.

Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross fulfilled (ended) the need for animal sacrifices.
