John the Baptist told the people that "Jesus will baptize with the Holy Spirit and with fire." The meaning of this is discussed. Jesus' genealogy is given in two places in Scripture: Luke 3 (vs.23-38) and in Matthew 1. Luke traces the genealogy of Mary (Jesus' blood relative) to Adam through David's son Nathan. Matthew 1 traces the genealogy of Joseph (Jesus' legal father) to Abraham. The differences and reasons for these different genealogies are discussed.
Scripture: Luke 3:15-4:2 1 Peter 4:12
