Shealtiel was the father of Zerubbabel.  13 Zerubbabel was the father of Abiud. Abiud was the father of Eliakim. Eliakim was the father of Azor.  14Azor was the father of Zadok.

YES

Yes is the answer in Christ to every need you have.  Few of the these people from Abraham to Matthan ever saw Jesus but many of them were looking forward to the Messiah’s arrival.  Joseph saw it, believed God and lived it and was used by the Father to raise Jesus.  If you will believe God He can use you too!
