Matthew 1:2

2 Abraham begot 1aIsaac, and Isaac begot 2bJacob, and Jacob begot 3cJudah and his 4dbrothers,


22 Isaac begot twin sons, Esau and Jacob (Gen. 25:21-26), but only Jacob was chosen by God (Rom. 9:10-13). Hence, Christ is his descendant to fulfill God's promise given to Abraham, to Isaac, and to him (Gen. 22:18; 26:4; 28:14).
