1 Chronicles 6-9

Levi's descendants.  Moses and Aaron are great grandsons of Levi.  Heman and Asaph led the Levite temple musicians in David and Solomon's day.  Aaron's sons made sacrifice.  The cities and lands the Levites were given throughout Israel.

Descendants of Issachar, Benjamin, Naphtali, Manasseh, Ephraim, and Asher.
Ephraim's early occupants of Canaan are killed by men of Gath.  Joshua comes from them.

8 - Benjamin's descendants, down to Saul.

Judah went into exile and returned.  This chapter connects family lines before and after exile of those who served in the temple and of Saul's family.

How is this about Jesus
These are the names of the remnant from exile.  They represent those written in the Lamb's book of life.  They are God's people, whom He knows intimately.  All our history, our names and our deeds.
