Re: The Genealogy of Jesus

Hidden:  I was just reading through the 1st chapter of Matthew and all the begats and I read something I never paid attention to before. Joseph, Mary's husband is a descendant of King David not Mary. So I was trying to find what Lineage Mary is from. I can't find it, even when I did a web search. So who is Mary a descendant of?

Hello Hidden.. The answer is both of them Joseph and Mary are descendants of King David. Let me expand this for you!

God had already announced his plans to have the messiah (a Future King of Judea) born to a virgin and from the house of Judah or King David. There was one catch! God had placed a blood curse on Jeconiah (also known as Jehoiachin) which prevented any male from prospering (not being able to rule from or sit upon the Throne of David). Thus, this would not allow Jesus (if born of Joseph) to be a King of Judea, as the prophecies announced.

A big problem. The solution is simple. Jesus will be born of another in the royal line of King David that has no such curse upon it. (Jer 22:30).

In the synoptic Gospels, Matthew gives the genealogy of Judah from the Levi (Jewish) point of view. Matthew traces the line from Abraham through David, Solomon to Joseph who will become the "Legal" father of Jesus. (Mat 1:1-16).

In another of the Gospels, Luke (a doctor), portrays Jesus as the "Son of Man". Here Luke traces the genealogy from Mary to Heli (her father) to Nathan (2nd surviving son of Bathsheba) to David, to Abraham, to Adam. (Luke 3:23-38)..Notice the genealogy is backwards

Hope this helps.

Another big problem!
Luk 3:23  And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli,
There is no mention of Mary in Luke's genealogical record.

Hello, Geoff...... Glad to have you on this forum.....

there are two genealogies of Jesus......... One is run through Abraham to Jesus and the other Luke's.

Keep in mind that Joseph's line had a blood curse upon them.  NO (MALE) child of that line could sit on the throne....Which would have also affected Jesus.

Joseph was the legal son of HELI....In other passages, we are told Heli is Mary's father...It was the custom where there were no males in the household, for the father to adopt the son-in-law and thus stabilizing the inheritance of the land, etc.  This is the reason why Joseph is listed ass the Son of Heli. (being the legal son of Heli).

Hope this helps

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
