The Genealogy Series

The Genealogy in Matthew 1:1-16 provides a clear account of the lineage of Jesus starting from Abraham and continuing through Jesus. The stories behind these characters provide a wealth of information about biblical truths spanning the whole Bible. The Genealogy Series provides a valuable tool to bring a rich understanding of events in the New Testament. Narratives about Old Testament characters are presented using color illustrations in video form.
