Matthew’s Genealogy Like You’ve Never Heard It Before

In this video performance from The Gospel Coalition’s ‘Songs of Hope’ Advent concert (which premiered Dec. 6, 2020), Poor Bishop Hooper performs their song “Christ”—a beautiful take on the genealogy of Jesus recorded in Matthew’s Gospel (1:1–17). The song is from Poor Bishop Hooper’s Advent project, Firstborn, which includes music, illustrations, videos, and writing—including a 48-page study on the lineage of Jesus.

Every generation is at risk of losing the gospel: temptations, distractions, false teachings, idols.

So much can compromise our faith and derail our mission.

But if the church is to thrive, we must be clear on the gospel.

On what it is, and what it means for all areas of life.

That’s why The Gospel Coalition exists.

We are a coalition of Christ followers from around the world, banding together to renew the contemporary church in the ancient gospel.

We are pastors, parents, students, artists, entrepreneurs, church planters.

We are from every tribe, every tongue, and every nation.

We are not united by culture, nationality, or politics, but by the cross of Jesus Christ.

We gather together to proclaim God’s glory.

We equip one another to know God’s Word.

We engage culture to illuminate God’s truth.

We are a movement of Reform and Renewal, helping Christians love God, know his Word, and engage the world with grace and truth.

We are not pursuing power or prosperity, popularity or applause.

We are pursuing faithfulness to Jesus Christ and his glorious gospel.

As Jesus said, “In this world we have much tribulation. But take heart. I have overcome the world.”

In his death and resurrection there is salvation and forgiveness of sins.

New and eternal life; the gift of the Holy Spirit; and a reconciliation to God.

This is the good news that the world desperately needs to hear.

And spreading this news is what The Gospel Coalition is about.
