The Genealogy of Jesus: Comments
« on: May 03, 2019, 07:52:20 pm »
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.

I never tried to study genealogies, too many names.

Genealogies are the way tells us the amount of time that has passed or the time it is.  To study them is only to understand them. (why are they so frequent, different and so limiting.

True, thanks.


If one looks at the genealogy of ADAM in Genesis 5, we find that Adam begat Seith ; Seith begat Enosh ; Enosh begat Kenan/Cainan ;  Kenan/Cainan begat Mahalaleel ; Mahalaleel begat Jared ; Jared begat Enoch; Enoch begat Methuselah ; Methuselah begat Lamech ; Lamech begat Noah

These are all Hebrew names and because of this, they all have a meaning.

Here is the meaning of each of these names.  ADAM = Man ; Seith = appointed ; Enosh = Mortal ; Kenan = sorrow ; Mahalaleel = The Blessed God ; Jared = Shall Come Down ; Enoch = Teaching ; Methuselah = His Death shall bring ; Lamech = The Despairing ; Noah = Rest or Comfort

If we put these together in one sentence it would read.

Man [is] appointed mortal sorrow [;] The Blessed God shall come down teaching His death shall bring the despairing rest or comfort.  [emphasis added]

Jesus Christ is the Blessed GOD in Genesis 5.

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!

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.

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

Thanks for the welcome.
I understand the curse.
I have several problems with what you wrote.
You say that Joseph was the "legal" son of Heli. There is no scriptural evidence to support the inference of this statement that I am aware of. If you know of this evidence in scripture please present it.
You also say "In other passages, we are told Heli is Mary's father". I am unaware of these passages. Would you please provide them?
You also seek to demonstrate that Mary had no male siblings. Would you provide the scriptural evidence for this please?
I am well aware that the statements you make are widely held to be true but I can't believe that God would leave us to make assumptions concerning something so important.
I mean, how does an assumption, however obvious it may seem, take the place of the word of God?

Psa 132:11  The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

Act 2:30  Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

You say assumptions which is not true...All that needs to be done is a backwards search sometimes.

Mat 1:1-16,,gives us the Genealogy of Adam to David and the royal LEGAL line from DAVID to Jesus..

In Mat 1:16.
." And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ."

We see above that Joseph was indeed in the LEGAL Royal line of DAVID, He is the Husband of MARY, the mother of Mary.

Thus so far we have established. Joseph (of the royal line) as the Husband of Mary who was the mother of Jesus Christ.

In Luke 3:23-28, we find Luke's genealogy of Jesus from Abraham to David is the same as Matthews.   Yet, from David to Jesus, Luke does not follow the royal line but rather through the second surviving son of Bathsheba, Nathan.  This line starting at Nathan down through Heli, the father of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. The Genealogy in LUKE is backwards with HELI being first in verse


Luk 3:23..(KJV).."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,"

We also see that Jesus , the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli.

As above, Joseph already has a father in Matthew....so Heli has to be an adoptive Father as is Joseph being the LEGAL father of Jesus.......

By deductive reasoning, we can see that Mary was the daughter of HELI even though the Bible does not directly say... It can be see as no other way.  FYI: God does this from time to time.....Hiding events, names, etc for the His Kings and priest (the Church (body of Christ)) to seek out and find.

Are you familiar with Jewish LAWs and customs....If I am going over ground you already know, disregard.

On the trip out of Egypt to the wilderness, i was asked of Moses about the father "Zelophehad" who only had daughters and had no sons to receive His inheritance of Land given to them by GOD. This rule permitted the daughters to receive the inheritance if and only if they married within their tribe and their father legally adopted the son-in-law. This is also seen the book of Ruth. I suggest reading this book very cloesly for it is all about Jewish Law on redemption of Land by a Goel. (Boaz).

Here are some passages that you can look upon in your leisure as to the laws and customs of those seen in the above paragraph.  Numbers 26:33; 27:1-11; 36:2-12; Joshua 17:3-6; 1 Chronicles 7:15


Because Jesus was born through the "SEED of the WOMAN" (Mary), her husband Joseph whose biological father was Jacob (Mat 1:16), adopted Jesus as was also the customs and laws given to the Jewish people by GOD.   

There is no assumptions as you can see. Maybe deductive reasoning leaving only one true answer. Many people will say this is not good enough...... It is to me.....because I simply believe every WORD, period, comma, etc to be the true WORD of GOD....SIMPLE

Oh, I almost forgot the Blood Curse on Jechonias (Mat 1:11-12).found in
Jer 22:30..
"Thus saith the LORD, Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah."

Thus preventing any male child from Jechonias on down from sitting on the throne of David.....This would have prevented Jesus from ruling from David THrone in the millennium, several prophecies would not be fulfilled. Yet, with the line from the Second Son of Bathsheba to Mary, the Throne was secured for Jesus......

Here we see the craftiness of GOD as when He placed the Blood curse on Jechonias, it surely made Lucifer jump for joy....He had won, and then he (satan)_ figured it out about Mary....

Make no bones about, Satan is trying to stop any one part of the plan of God from being fulfilled. So far (in the KJV), all prophecies have been 100% and many more to go.

Hope this helps. If not be specific and I will try to get you the answer' ;D

Thanks for the welcome.
I understand the curse.
I have several problems with what you wrote.
You say that Joseph was the "legal" son of Heli. There is no scriptural evidence to support the inference of this statement that I am aware of. If you know of this evidence in scripture please present it.
You also say "In other passages, we are told Heli is Mary's father". I am unaware of these passages. Would you please provide them?
You also seek to demonstrate that Mary had no male siblings. Would you provide the scriptural evidence for this please?
I am well aware that the statements you make are widely held to be true but I can't believe that God would leave us to make assumptions concerning something so important.
I mean, how does an assumption, however obvious it may seem, take the place of the word of God?

Psa 132:11  The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

Act 2:30  Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

You say assumptions which is not true...All that needs to be done is a backwards search sometimes.

Mat 1:1-16,,gives us the Genealogy of Adam to David and the royal LEGAL line from DAVID to Jesus..

In Mat 1:16.
." And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ."

We see above that Joseph was indeed in the LEGAL Royal line of DAVID, He is the Husband of MARY, the mother of Mary.

Thus so far we have established. Joseph (of the royal line) as the Husband of Mary who was the mother of Jesus Christ.

In Luke 3:23-28, we find Luke's genealogy of Jesus from Abraham to David is the same as Matthews.   Yet, from David to Jesus, Luke does not follow the royal line but rather through the second surviving son of Bathsheba, Nathan.  This line starting at Nathan down through Heli, the father of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. The Genealogy in LUKE is backwards with HELI being first in verse


Luk 3:23..(KJV).."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,"

We also see that Jesus , the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli.

As above, Joseph already has a father in Matthew....so Heli has to be an adoptive Father as is Joseph being the LEGAL father of Jesus.......
By deductive reasoning, we can see that Mary was the daughter of HELI even though the Bible does not directly say... It can be see as no other way.

See this is where I have problems with your summary. You say "so Heli has to be an adoptive Father".
Luke says: 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,
What was Luke meaning by this statement?
Jesus being the son of Joseph, as everyone supposed. That's what he meant. Why do we know this? Because every time it's mentioned by those who knew Jesus that's what they thought to be the case... that Jesus was the son of Joseph. All these statements below are given to us as the word of God.
Mat 13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

Luk 4:22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?

Joh 1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

Joh 6:42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

Listen to his mother...

Luk 2:48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
Luk 2:49  And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
Luk 2:50  And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.

Why didn't Mary and Joseph understand what he told them? I'll bet you think you know what he meant! Why didn't they?

FYI: God does this from time to time.....Hiding events, names, etc for the His Kings and priest (the Church (body of Christ)) to seek out and find.

Oh yes, things are hidden. I don't deny that, but the facts are hidden and must be found. We are not supposed to follow rabbit trails riddled with assumptions and conjecture.

Yes it so happens I am very aware of all this.
I would be quite accepting of this solution if there was any evidence that it was the case in this situation, but there is not. You are basing your belief on the assumption that it is the case.
There is a stronger case to argue that Mary was of the house of Levi but you won't find me using it because, once again, it is conjecture, without scriptural evidence.
Jer 33:17  For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;
Jer 33:18  Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.
Luk 1:5  There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.
Luk 1:36  And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth....

Perhaps you are also aware that there are also snares laid to catch the unwary that would assume that which has not been spoken.
2Th 2:11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Thank you but I am very familiar with them all.

Because Jesus was born through the "SEED of the WOMAN" (Mary), her husband Joseph whose biological father was Jacob (Mat 1:16), adopted Jesus as was also the customs and laws given to the Jewish people by GOD.   

There is no assumptions as you can see. Maybe deductive reasoning leaving only one true answer. Many people will say this is not good enough...... It is to me.....because I simply believe every WORD, period, comma, etc to be the true WORD of GOD....SIMPLE

Yes many people would say it's not good enough to apply "deductive reasoning" in place of scriptural evidence. I am one of them.
Supply scriptural support for your assertions and I'll be happy to concur.
You will need scriptural evidence that Mary was a descendant of David and that she had no male siblings. Find that and I will accept what you say. If not, your statement about believing the word of God to be true is just hot air.

Re: The Genealogy of Jesus
« Reply #10 on: December 14, 2019, 10:23:47 am »


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

Blade


Thanks for the welcome.
I understand the curse.
I have several problems with what you wrote.
You say that Joseph was the "legal" son of Heli. There is no scriptural evidence to support the inference of this statement that I am aware of. If you know of this evidence in scripture please present it.
You also say "In other passages, we are told Heli is Mary's father". I am unaware of these passages. Would you please provide them?
You also seek to demonstrate that Mary had no male siblings. Would you provide the scriptural evidence for this please?
I am well aware that the statements you make are widely held to be true but I can't believe that God would leave us to make assumptions concerning something so important.
I mean, how does an assumption, however obvious it may seem, take the place of the word of God?

Psa 132:11  The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

Act 2:30  Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

You say assumptions which is not true...All that needs to be done is a backwards search sometimes.

Mat 1:1-16,,gives us the Genealogy of Adam to David and the royal LEGAL line from DAVID to Jesus..

In Mat 1:16.
." And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ."

We see above that Joseph was indeed in the LEGAL Royal line of DAVID, He is the Husband of MARY, the mother of Mary.

Thus so far we have established. Joseph (of the royal line) as the Husband of Mary who was the mother of Jesus Christ.

In Luke 3:23-28, we find Luke's genealogy of Jesus from Abraham to David is the same as Matthews.   Yet, from David to Jesus, Luke does not follow the royal line but rather through the second surviving son of Bathsheba, Nathan.  This line starting at Nathan down through Heli, the father of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. The Genealogy in LUKE is backwards with HELI being first in verse


Luk 3:23..(KJV).."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,"

We also see that Jesus , the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli.

As above, Joseph already has a father in Matthew....so Heli has to be an adoptive Father as is Joseph being the LEGAL father of Jesus.......
By deductive reasoning, we can see that Mary was the daughter of HELI even though the Bible does not directly say... It can be see as no other way.

See this is where I have problems with your summary. You say "so Heli has to be an adoptive Father".
Luke says: 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,
What was Luke meaning by this statement?
Jesus being the son of Joseph, as everyone supposed. That's what he meant. Why do we know this? Because every time it's mentioned by those who knew Jesus that's what they thought to be the case... that Jesus was the son of Joseph. All these statements below are given to us as the word of God.
Mat 13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

Luk 4:22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?

Joh 1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

Joh 6:42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

Listen to his mother...

Luk 2:48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
Luk 2:49  And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
Luk 2:50  And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.

Why didn't Mary and Joseph understand what he told them? I'll bet you think you know what he meant! Why didn't they?

Quote
FYI: God does this from time to time.....Hiding events, names, etc for the His Kings and priest (the Church (body of Christ)) to seek out and find.

Oh yes, things are hidden. I don't deny that, but the facts are hidden and must be found. We are not supposed to follow rabbit trails riddled with assumptions and conjecture.

Quote
Are you familiar with Jewish LAWs and customs....If I am going over ground you already know, disregard.

On the trip out of Egypt to the wilderness, i was asked of Moses about the father "Zelophehad" who only had daughters and had no sons to receive His inheritance of Land given to them by GOD. This rule permitted the daughters to receive the inheritance if and only if they married within their tribe and their father legally adopted the son-in-law. This is also seen the book of Ruth. I suggest reading this book very cloesly for it is all about Jewish Law on redemption of Land by a Goel. (Boaz).

Yes it so happens I am very aware of all this.
I would be quite accepting of this solution if there was any evidence that it was the case in this situation, but there is not. You are basing your belief on the assumption that it is the case.
There is a stronger case to argue that Mary was of the house of Levi but you won't find me using it because, once again, it is conjecture, without scriptural evidence.
Jer 33:17  For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;
Jer 33:18  Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.
Luk 1:5  There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.
Luk 1:36  And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth....

Perhaps you are also aware that there are also snares laid to catch the unwary that would assume that which has not been spoken.
2Th 2:11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Geoff...It is very easy to dismiss scriptures because "it did not say that". Well, Yes it did say that...Jospeh's biological father is given in Mat 1:1-16...FACT

In Luke 3 we find that Heli is also Joseph's father.....HOW can this be????

One cannot have two fathers yet here we have two people who have two fathers...Jesus and Joseph.....

Since this is GOD's WORD...we start searching as to why this was said...We look at the history of the Jewish people and the Laws that GOD gave them...and find the answer...... I gave it to you and you have rejected it.

One last item...You ask for me for information about why it appears Joseph had two fathers....This I gave you in fine detail......Yes it is up to you to follow Acts 17:11 (part of my signature) and find out for yourself.

Yet all you can do is take jabs at the God's WORD and Myself....By taking a jab at GOD's WORDs, you have to answer to Him...
 
as Far as your Jab at me
[/b] "Why didn't Mary and Joseph understand what he told them? I'll bet you think you know what he meant! Why didn't they?" was unnecessary.

in Rev 1:6..(KJV)... God tells all of us;
"And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen."

and in Probs 25:2..(KJV)..."It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter."

Here we find even though it is an OT scripture, it also relevant to Rev 1:6..as we in the CHurch (body of Christ) are to be Kings and Priest.

I urge you to follow Acts 17:11  and read your Bible literally,historically,  grammatically paying attention to the synthesis of the WORD....

For in JOHN !:! states (KJV)
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."


In Psalms 12:6-7..(KJV).."The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever."

As in 2 TIM 3:16..(KJV).."All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"[/color]

The Bible (KJV) is an integrated Book (OT and NT). It has 66 books that were written by 40 humans and has only ONE Author....

I hope this helps and if you also reject it, that is fine.....It is my job, given to me by GOD (in scripture) to teach the TRUE WORD for ll to hear.....

I pray the Lord touches your heart so that the Blindness you have is removed enabling  you to see His True WORD>...

I hope you have a very Blessed day as we are all (saved and unsaved) awaiting our individual rapture (death) to our everlasting life, wherever that may be......Up or Down.

Jesus being the son of Joseph, as everyone supposed. That's what he meant. Why do we know this? Because every time it's mentioned by those who knew Jesus that's what they thought to be the case... that Jesus was the son of Joseph. All these statements below are given to us as the word of God.
Mat 13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

Luk 4:22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?

Joh 1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

Joh 6:42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

Listen to his mother...

Luk 2:48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
Luk 2:49  And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
Luk 2:50  And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.

Why didn't Mary and Joseph understand what he told them?
I'll bet you think you know what he meant! [/b]Why didn't they?

FYI: God does this from time to time.....Hiding events, names, etc for the His Kings and priest (the Church (body of Christ)) to seek out and find.


Oh yes, things are hidden. I don't deny that, but the facts are hidden and must be found. We are not supposed to follow rabbit trails riddled with assumptions and conjecture.

Are you familiar with Jewish LAWs and customs....If I am going over ground you already know, disregard.

On the trip out of Egypt to the wilderness, i was asked of Moses about the father "Zelophehad" who only had daughters and had no sons to receive His inheritance of Land given to them by GOD. This rule permitted the daughters to receive the inheritance if and only if they married within their tribe and their father legally adopted the son-in-law. This is also seen the book of Ruth. I suggest reading this book very cloesly for it is all about Jewish Law on redemption of Land by a Goel. (Boaz).


Yes it so happens I am very aware of all this.
I would be quite accepting of this solution if there was any evidence that it was the case in this situation, but there is not. You are basing your belief on the assumption that it is the case.
There is a stronger case to argue that Mary was of the house of Levi but you won't find me using it because, once again, it is conjecture, without scriptural evidence.
Jer 33:17  For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;
Jer 33:18  Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.
Luk 1:5  There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.
Luk 1:36  And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth....

Perhaps you are also aware that there are also snares laid to catch the unwary that would assume that which has not been spoken.
2Th 2:11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Here are some passages that you can look upon in your leisure as to the laws and customs of those seen in the above paragraph.  Numbers 26:33; 27:1-11; 36:2-12; Joshua 17:3-6; 1 Chronicles 7:15

Thank you but I am very familiar with them all.

Quote
Because Jesus was born through the "SEED of the WOMAN" (Mary), her husband Joseph whose biological father was Jacob (Mat 1:16), adopted Jesus as was also the customs and laws given to the Jewish people by GOD.   

There is no assumptions as you can see. Maybe deductive reasoning leaving only one true answer. Many people will say this is not good enough...... It is to me.....because I simply believe every WORD, period, comma, etc to be the true WORD of GOD....SIMPLE


Yes many people would say it's not good enough to apply "deductive reasoning" in place of scriptural evidence. I am one of them.
Supply scriptural support for your assertions and I'll be happy to concur.
You will need scriptural evidence that Mary was a descendant of David and that she had no male siblings. Find that and I will accept what you say. If not, your statement about believing the word of God to be true is just hot air.

Quote

Make no bones about, Satan is trying to stop any one part of the plan of God from being fulfilled.


It makes his job easy when we put our trust in assumptions.


Geoff...It is very easy to dismiss scriptures because "it did not say that". Well, Yes it did say that...Jospeh's biological father is given in Mat 1:1-16...FACT

In Luke 3 we find that Heli is also Joseph's father.....HOW can this be? ???

One cannot have two fathers yet here we have two people who have two fathers...Jesus and Joseph.....

Since this is GOD's WORD...we start searching as to why this was said...We look at the history of the Jewish people and the Laws that GOD gave them...and find the answer...... I gave it to you and you have rejected it.

BEFORE I SAY ANYTHING IN RESPONSE I STUFFED UP AND MADE THIS INTO TWO TOPICS BY MISTAKE! I APOLOGISE, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO FIX UP THE MESS IF YOU CAN! :)

Okay, here goes...

I'm not prepared to accept circumstantial evidence as truth when there are other options.

Quote
One last item...You ask for me for information about why it appears Joseph had two fathers....This I gave you in fine detail......Yes it is up to you to follow Acts 17:11 (part of my signature) and find out for yourself.

Which I have done a long time ago.

Quote
Yet all you can do is take jabs at the God's WORD and Myself....By taking a jab at GOD's WORDs, you have to answer to Him...

I trust the word of God implicitly... your word... not so much.
 
Quote
as Far as your Jab at me[/color] "Why didn't Mary and Joseph understand what he told them? I'll bet you think you know what he meant! Why didn't they?" was unnecessary.

You take it as a jab but it wasn't intended as such. I have an opinion on it, most people I have discussed it with do. If you don't then I assumed wrongly. See how assumptions are not always right?
A wise person once told me that offence can't be given, it's always taken. It has served me well knowing that.

Quote
in Rev 1:6..(KJV)... God tells all of us;[/color]"And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen."

and in Probs 25:2..(KJV)..."It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter."

Here we find even though it is an OT scripture, it also relevant to Rev 1:6..as we in the CHurch (body of Christ) are to be Kings and Priest.

I urge you to follow Acts 17:11  and read your Bible literally,historically,  grammatically paying attention to the synthesis of the WORD....

You mean continue to do what I do in other words...

Quote
For in JOHN !:! states (KJV)[/color] "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

Yes it seems you read 'word' in that verse and see Jesus. I don't. Jesus officially became the word as recorded in Phil. 2:8-9, a fulfilment of God's plan and purpose from the foundation.
Phi 2:8  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Phi 2:9  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:


Quote
In Psalms 12:6-7..(KJV).."The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever."

As in 2 TIM 3:16..(KJV).."All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"[/color]

The Bible (KJV) is an integrated Book (OT and NT). It has 66 books that were written by 40 humans and has only ONE Author....

Yes I concur absolutely as long as you don't think that the bible as we know it (even the KJV) is infallibly the word of God as delivered to the holy men of God who penned what they heard of the Spirit. Unfortunately devious men have had their way. An example of what I mean would be the personification of the 'word' in John 1:1

Quote
I hope this helps and if you also reject it, that is fine.....It is my job, given to me by GOD (in scripture) to teach the TRUE WORD for ll to hear.....

As it is my commission also...

Quote
I pray the Lord touches your heart so that the Blindness you have is removed enabling  you to see His True WORD>...

Speaking of jabs...
Just as well that wise person was true to his task...

Quote
I hope you have a very Blessed day as we are all (saved and unsaved) awaiting our individual rapture (death) to our everlasting life, wherever that may be......Up or Down.

Joh 6:44  No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Joh 6:65  And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

I'm not so bold as to think I am anything. I am relying on the mercy of God as are all men whether they know it or not, for...
1Ti 2:3  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
1Ti 2:4  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

Your questioning the KJV can also be discussed in a different thread should you wish it.

Your question about the WORD of GOD in JOHN 1:1 and my use of it can be discussed in a different thread if you wish.

However, I would like to clear up the Joseph, May and Heli "assumption" as you called it....

In Luke 3:23.(KJV) ."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,"

Your word "assumption" kind of hit me wrong. Needless to say, I went back to research it a little more and here is the answer as given to you by GOD himself....

"AS WAS SUPPOSED"   meaning..νομίζω nomízō, nom-id'-zo; from G3551; properly, to do by law (usage), i.e. to accustom (passively, be usual); by extension, to deem or regard:—suppose, thing, be wont.

So Joseph was a son to heli according to customs of Israel concerning the issues brought about by Zelophehad. A Son-in-law  adopted......

Outline of Biblical (KJV) Usage :   to hold by custom or usage, own as a custom or usage, to follow a custom or usage, it is the custom, it is the received usage , to deem, think, suppose

Hope you have a good evening.

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."
