The Ancestors of Christ: Asa, Josaphat, Joram / Sistine Chapel

11 Asa practiced what the Lord considered to be right, just like his ancestor David. 

12 He also removed the male cult prostitutes from the land and destroyed all the idols that his ancestors had made. 

13 He removed his mother Maacah from her position as Queen Mother because she had made a detestable image dedicated to Asherah. Asa cut down his mother’s idol, crushed it, and burned it at the Kidron Brook.


— I Kings 15:11-13
