FAQ: A king named Jeconiah is listed in Solomon's genealogy (Matt 1:11). He was a very bad king; so bad that God pronounced a curse on his posterity. If Jesus inherited David's throne from Solomon, then shouldn't he have also inherited Jeconiah's curse right along with it?

A: Yes; because the monarchy and the curse were a package. But here's the wording of the curse.

"Thus says The Lord: Write this man down childless, a man who will not prosper in his days; for no man of his descendants will prosper sitting on the throne of David or ruling again in Judah." (Jer 22:29-30)

The wording "ruling again in Judah" indicates that the curse on Jeconiah's royal progeny was limited to the era of the divided kingdom, with Judah in the south and Samaria in the north. That condition came to an end when Nebuchadnezzar crushed the whole country and led first Samaria, and then later Judah, off to Babylonian slavery.

When Messiah reigns, the country of Israel will be unified. His jurisdiction won't be limited to Judah within a divided kingdom, but will dominate all the land of Israel. So the curse doesn't extend to him.

Ezek 37:21-22 . .You shall declare to them: Thus said the Lord God: I am going to take the Israelite people from among the nations they have gone to, and gather them from every quarter, and bring them to their own land. I will make them a single nation in the land, on the hills of Israel, and one king shall be king of them all. Never again shall they be two nations, and never again shall they be divided into two kingdoms.


FAQ: I've heard it said that Jesus was virgin-born primarily to circumvent Jeconiah's curse, viz; the curse only extends to blood relatives. Is that true?

A: It's an attractive alternative. If perchance you should favor it, you will be in good company because it's a common belief held among quite a few respectable expositors.

Speaking for myself alone, I sincerely believe the opinion is an error because adoption gives kids a standing equal to those born in the home. Were that not true, then Jesus would have no right to a place in Solomon's genealogy.
