Alistair Begg – Why does Matthew begin his gospel with a long list of names? Alistair Begg expounds on three events from Matthew’s list that establish the historical context of Christ’s birth: God’s promise to Abraham that through him all nations will be blessed, God’s promise to David that his kingdom would last forever, and the exile of the Israelites.
