Matthew begins his account of Jesus's birth with a list of ancestors. Why does he include this? It makes more sense when we remember that he is writing for Jewish readers.
Matthew organises his list of ancestors in a way to show that Jesus is the promised deliverer, the Messiah, that he is a descendant of King David, and that he is born at just the right moment.
