An account of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 
Matthew 1. 1

Reflection 
Where our translation gives 'account' the Greek reads 'biblos' or book. Matthew is telling us plainly what his purpose is: to give us a book that as a whole offers itself as witness as to who Jesus is and that our faith is grounded on a sure foundation.
