This is About Jesus Christ
Note Genesis 5:1 for the parallel.
Advent is about a new beginning. It is about covenants. It is about Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
His birth and life are rooted in history

The Adam family has a few "nuts" in the family tree. The pedigree is not a source of pride.
* Tamar: Genesis 38
* Rahab: Joshua 6
* Ruth: Ruth 1
* Bathsheba: 2 Samuel 11
Jesus didn't come to earth because people were good. He came to "save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21
The first Advent is to prepare people for the Second Advent. He came once, He is coming again!
