He [Jesus] was the son, so it was thought, of Joseph, . . . the son of Judah, the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham . . .” Luke 3:23, 34 (NIV)
Abraham was the father of Isaac . . . the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus.” Matthew 1:2, 16 (NIV)
Abraham had two sons: Ishmael (Gen. 16:1) and Isaac (Gen. 17:19). This prophecy states that God will only establish His everlasting covenant through Isaac. Jesus Christ is a descendant of Isaac and the fulfillment of that covenant according to Galatians 3:16.
