The Genealogy Instrumental in Bringing a Jew to Christ

Gideon Miller was born a Jew. He had a drinking problem and when he eventually realized that he had this problem, he started going to a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous - which met in a church. One evening he arrived early and so looked round for something to read. He picked up a New Testament and started reading Matthew’s Gospel. He read the genealogy of Jesus and suddenly realized that Jesus wasn’t a Christian - he was a Jew!!So he went out and bought a New Testament and began reading it regularly. And eventually he decided to give his life to Christ. The genealogy of Christ was instrumental in bringing Gideon to know Jesus as Saviour (Source Unknown).
