On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank discusses the importance of the genealogy of Jesus Christ. The Sunday before Christmas is historically dubbed the Sunday of the Fathers, when all churches read the genealogy of Jesus as depicted by St. Matthew. Hank states that the genealogy of Jesus did not end when Jacob begot Joseph, who was the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ. Rather, it continues on through all of those who were adopted into the family of God.

Hank also answers the following questions:

  • Why does Exodus 34:7 say that God will punish children for the sins of their fathers?
  • Was sending Jesus God’s plan “B” since Adam fell? Couldn’t God have stopped Adam from sinning?
  • I spoke with a Mormon who was trying to prove that the Bible contradicts itself by citing Deuteronomy 4:2 and Revelation 22:18-19. How would you answer this?
