Folks, I need to apologize for two incorrect scripture references that went out in the past week. One was sent on Friday the tenth and the other was sent this morning the 14th. Both were taken from Matthew Chapter One but were marked as Chapter 2. The verse number was correct in both instances, the Chapter was actually Chapter 1 and not Chapter 2. I am resending both verses at this time with the appropriate reference.
Matthew 1:17 (sent out wrong as Matthew 2:17 on 12-10-2010)
17Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Messiah.
Matthew 1:18 (sent out wrong as Matthew 2:18 on 12-14-2010)
18This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.
