“And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;”
King James Version (KJV)

About the Inquistion that may have put many people to death for their Holy and Loving Faith, many testimonies are recorded in the Martyrs Mirror. Menno Simmons, Dietrich Philips, Claus Ganloff, Peter Twisk, ( I am not sure of the spellings here at work) have confessions of faith well recorded that do not agree that repentance is a process from birth. The only process from birth is learning that some day our sins will come into account and be ready for that call like Samuel. Read these confessions for yourself. Prove their spirit.
When I have time I will quote some for you all.

Ozias is the Greek form of Uzziah. Uzziah means "My strength is Jehovah".
Joatham is the Greek form of Jotham. Jotham means "Jehovah is perfect".
Achaz is the Greek form of Ahaz. Ahaz means "Possessor".
Ezekias is Greek for Hezekiah. Hezekiah means "Strengthened of Jehovah".

Matthew 1 reminds me of the long & rich tradition from which comes my Christian faith. So comforting to see oneself within a community that crosses time & space.
