Old Testament prophesies declared that the Messiah would be a descendant of David. Matthews inclusion of three sets of 14 generations was purposeful and is significant because the number 14 is associated with the name-title "David." Hebrew and other ancient languages used letters of the alphabet to represent numbers and sounds. The Hebrew letters in the ame David carry a numberic value of 14 (D-V-D) and 4 and 6 and 4= 14. Since the promised Messiah was to be born into the lineage of David, some scholars speculated that Matthew may have divided the geneology as he did to subtly emphasize that Jesus Christ was the long-awaited Davidic Messiah. Also, the number 14 is double the number 7, which is the number signifying perfection and completeness. Jesus is the embodiment of divine perfection and completeness.
