DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Truth – Living: In today’s Gospel, the chief priests and elders questioned Jesus’ authority to teach in the Temple.  However, they were not able to refute the Truth that Jesus proclaimed.  Likewise, if we try to justify our unbelief and disobedience of God’s Truth, Love and Mercy, we will always live in fear and insecurity.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 1:1-2a, 6b, 11b, 16-17

Roll of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, son of David, son of Abraham:

Abraham fathered Isaac ….

David fathered Solomon ….

Then the deportation to Babylon took place.

Jacob fathered Joseph the husband of Mary; of her was born Jesus who is called Christ.

The sum of generations is therefore: fourteen from Abraham to David; fourteen from David to the Babylonian deportation; and fourteen from the Babylonian deportation to Christ.
