The Two Genealogies of Matthew 1 & Luke 3
ACCORDING TO MATTHEW
ACCORDING TO LUKE
THE REGAL LEGAL LINE
“The Throne of His father David”
THE NATURAL LEGAL LINE
(“The Seed of the Woman”)
THE FOURTEEN LAY GENERATIONS
14. DAVID the King (in Hebron, 2 Sam2:4, 11).
THE REGAL FOURTH GENERATION
01. DAVID (THE KING “over all Israel”, 2 Sam 5:4—3).
02. SOLOMON (Eldest surviving son of Bathsheba)
07. JORAM the son-in-law of Ahab “died of sore diseases”, II Chron 21:19
AHAZIAH his son (called “son-in-law of the house of Ahab”, II Kings 2:27),
JOASH his, grandson, and
AMAZIAH his great-grandson-all died violent deaths.
08. OZIAS. Ahaziah was slain by Jehu (2 k 9:27)
09. JOATHOM Joash “ “ “ his servants (2 K 12:20)
10. ACHAZ Amaziah (wsb) the people of Jerusalem (2 k 14:19)
11. EZEKIAS Thus God’s” visiting for idolatry was fulfilled literally” “To
12. MANASSES the 3rd & 4th generation” (Ex 20:4—5). Their names were
13 AMON therefore “blotted out” according to Law (Deut 29:20)
Jehoiakim: Both Jehoiakim & his son Jeconiah are alike omitted from the
royal fourteen generations for,
1. The paramount reason that the Kingdom as an independent kingdom ended with the death of Josiah at Megiddo when Judah passed under the power of Egypt, And ultimately Babylon.
2. In the case of Jehoiakim For “that which was found on him” 2 Chron 36:8, note), and in that of Jechoniah for the reasons given in Jer 22: 24—30. Their names are thus also blotted out according to Law.
2 Chron 36:8 Found in him = found upon him. On this is grounded the belief that he was tat tattooed with idolatrous marks or signs (Lev 19:28; Cp Rev 13:16—17).
Jeremiah 22:24-30 (KJV)
24 “As I live, saith the Lord, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah were the signet upon my right hand, yet would I pluck thee thence;”
25 “And I will give thee into the hand of them that seek thy life, and into the hand of them whose face thou fearest, even into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of the Chaldeans.”
26 “And I will cast thee out, and thy mother that bare thee, into another country, where ye were not born; and there shall ye die.”
27 “But to the land whereunto they desire to return, thither shall they not return.”
28 “Is this man Coniah a despised broken idol? is he a vessel wherein is no pleasure? wherefore [this is why they are cast out] are they cast out, he and his seed, and are cast into a land which they know not?”
29 “O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord.”
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.”
13 Joseph Son reckoned “according to Law” (hōs enomizio, Luke 3:23) of Heli by betrothal to Heli’s daughter: therefore, also “according to Law” HUSBAND of MARIAM
Cp Matt 1:20 Luke 2:5 - With Deut 22:23—24
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.
Matthew 1:20 (KJV) But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mariam thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
He pondered or thought about this step. This was Satan’s assault, as he had assaulted Abraham before. Fear not means be not afraid. This indicates his condition of mind.
Genesis 12:11-13 (KJV)
11 And it came to pass, when he [Abraham] was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, “Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon.”
12 “Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive.”
13 “Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.”
It is only by the Divine specific act of creation that any created being can be called "a son of God". For that which is "born of the flesh is flesh". God is spirit, and that which is "born of the Spirit is spirit" (John 3:6). Hence Adam is called a "son of God" in Luke 3:38. Those "in Christ" having "the new nature" which is by the direct creation of God (2Cor. 5:17. Eph. 2:10) can be, and are called "sons of God" (John 1:13. Rom. 8:14, 15. 1John 3:1). (*1)
Deuteronomy 22:23-24 (KJV)
23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;
‘This is why he thought on these things.’ (Matt 1:20 (KJV)
24 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.
12. Arphaxad [Cainan]*
34. Nathan 2nd (surviving) son of Bathsheba
56. Rhesa *

Here is the truth of the alteration and attack of Satan to usurp Jesus’ http://www.godsplan.org.uk/thesufferingsandglory.htm Rome has first corrupted JEROME's Vulgate by changing the "e" into "a," and putting "ipsa" (she) instead of "ipse" (He); who have thereby been deceived into putting Mary in the place of Jesus;
*12. Arphaxad [Cainan]* Undoubtedly an interpolation Certain copies of the Septuagint towards the close Of the fourth cent A.D. (Interpolate comes from Latin interpolare, a verb with various meanings, among them "to refurbish," "to alter," and "to falsify."Interpolate entered English in the 17th century and was applied early on to the alteration (and in many cases corruption) of texts by insertion of additional introduction.) Arphaxad. A son of Shem, two years after the flood, Genesis 10:22; 11:10.Seven generations followed him before Abraham, while he lived until after the settlement of Abraham in the land of promise and the rescue of Lot from the four kings.
Genesis 10:22 (KJV) The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
Genesis 11:10 (KJV) These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:
LORD A HERVEY, The Genealogies of our Lord, ch viii. p 195. On the contrary, the evidence for His (Jesus’) existence is inferential, (inferred) obscure, or open to the suspicion of falsification: -
2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Atheists will accept any subject as long as it conforms to their limited knowledge, and negative attitude, is easy to interpret, and doesn’t interfere with their lifestyle. As for studying God’s-Word, most haven’t even read the Bible, let alone study it. So what do you think makes atheists such an authority on God and religion?
“THE EVIDENCE AGAINST HIS EXISTENCE IS TO THE UTMOST POSSIBLE DEGREE, CLEAR, FULL, AND, POSITIVE, AND NOT LIABLE TO ANY MISTAKE OR PERVERSION.
Gospel: Anglo Saxon ‘Godspell’ which means a narrative of God: A life of Christ. The English word “Gospel” has no connection with the Greek euaggelion (Euangelion exists for the purpose of promoting the gospel by commenting on issues relating to the Christian Scriptures and evangelical faith.)
XV. THE SON OF GOD
This title expresses the relation of the Son to the Father (Matt 1:20. Luke 1:31, 35); and of all those who are begotten of God (See note on Matt 1:1. I John 3:1) It differs therefore from the relationship expressed by “the Son of man”, which relates to “dominion” in the earth.
As the Son of God, Christ is “the heir to all things” (Hebrew 1:2), and is invested with “all power”, and is “the Resurrection and the Life”. (John 11:25), having power to raise the dead (John 11:25).
As “the Son of Man”, all judgement is committed to Him (John 5:27) in the earth.
Luke 1:31, 35 (KJV)
31. And, 20behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a Son. and shalt call His name Jesus.
Thou shalt conceive: The Tense marks a future action, the beginning of which in relation to future time is past, but the consequences of which still continue.
Note the four statements of the angel, combining the four-key texts of the four Gospels.
1. Thou shalt…bring forth a Son: “Behold the Man”. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/lifeofjesus.htm
2. Thou shalt call His name Jesus: “Behold My Servant”. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/firstperaeandiscourses.htm
3. He shall be great…the son of the Highest (v32): Behold your God”. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm
4. He shall reign, &c. (v33): “Behold thy King”. http://godsplan.org.uk/christtheredeemer.htm
JESUS. https://levendwater.org/companion/append48.html The use of large capital letters for certain words and phrases originated with the A.V. None of the previous or “former translations” have them.
The revisers abandoned this practice, but have not been consistent in the plan they substituted for it. In most of the cases they have used small capital letters instead of the large capitals. but in three cases (Jer 23:6. Zech 3:8; 6:12) they have used ordinary roman type.
The use of large capitals by the translators or the A.V. is destitute of any authority, and merely indicates the importance which they attached to such words and phrases thus indicated. For those with The Companion Bible see Ap 48 for more.
See note on Matt 1:21 Bring forth. Not the same as in verses 2, 16, 20.Greek tiktō. Not “of thee” as in Luke 1:35, because He was not Joseph’s son, but the Son of God.
35. And the angel answered and said unto her, 15”The Holy Ghost shall come 12upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy Thing Which shall be born 5of thee shall be called the Son of God.
SHALL OVERSHADOW: MEANING:
Exodus 33:22 (KJV) “And it shall come to pass, while My glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with My hand while I pass by:”
Mark 9:7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my beloved Son: hear Him.”
THE HOLY THING See Hebrews 7:26. 1 Peter 2:22, and note on Matt 27:4.
Hebrews 7:26 (KJV) “For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;”
1 Peter 2:22 (KJV) “Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:”
Note on Matt 27:4 The innocent. (No Article) The innocence of the LORD was affirmed by six witnesses, three in Matthew 27, and three in Luke 23.
1. Judas: Matthew 27:4 (KJV) Saying, “I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood.” And they said, “What is that to us? see thou to that.”
2. Pilate: Matthew 27:24 (KJV) When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.”
3. Pilate’s wife: Matthew 27:19 (KJV) When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, “Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.”
4. Herod: Luke 23:15 (KJV) “No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to Him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto Him.”
5. The malefactor [criminal]: Luke 23:41 (KJV) “And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.”
6. The Roman centurion: Luke 23:47 (KJV) Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, “Certainly this was a righteous man.”
Luke 2:5 (KJV) “To be taxed with
Mary [Mariam] his espoused wife, being great
Hebrews 1:2 (KJV) “Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, Whom He hath appointed Heir of all things, by Whom also He made all the worlds.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/stars.htm
In these last days; at the end of these days: i.e. at the period closed by the ministry of John.
Son. Greek huios. Ap 108.iii. https://levendwater.org/companion/append108.html Son Put by Synecdoche (of Genus), Ap 6 https://levendwater.org/companion/append6.html, for a descendant. huios = a son, or male, having reference to origin and nature, including that of relationship to the father. No article, but its absence only “more emphatically and definitely expresses the exclusive character of His Sonship”.
See Hebrews 5:8 (KJV) “Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/obediencebringsblessings.htm
John 11:25 (KJV) Jesus said unto her, “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/internalspirit.htm
John 5:27 (KJV) “And 26hath given Him authority to execute 22judgement also, because He is the Son of man.” http://godsplan.org.uk/greattribulation2.htm
The Divine purpose in the Gospel by Matthew is to set forth the Lord as Jehovah’s King http://www.godsplan.org.uk/jehovah%27sword.htm. Hence those events in His ministry are singled out and emphasised which set forth His claims as the Messiah—sent to fulfill all the prophecies concerning Him.

Most of these have to do with the special object of this Gospel. The words and expressions peculiar to this Gospel have the same purpose: such as the “Kingdom of Heaven” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/kingdom.htm, which occurs thirty two times and not once in any other Gospel. (Eight (8) Denotes resurrection, regeneration; a new beginning or commencement. The eight is a new first, hence the octave in music, colour, days of the week etc. It is the number, which has to do with the Lord, who rose on the “eighth’’ or new “first-day’’. This is, therefore, the Dominical number. (belonging to the Lord, as the Lord’s prayer, The Lord’s Day) By Gematria ‘Iησоûѕ (Jesus) makes the number 888.
IT, OR ITS MULTIPLE IS IMPRESSED ON ALL THAT HAS TO DO WITH THE LORD’S NAMES, THE LORD’S PEOPLE, THE LORD’S WORKS 4X8 = 32).
“Father in Heaven”, which occurs fifteen times in Matthew, only twice in Mark, and not at all in Luke 11:2 “which is in heaven “, being omitted by all the critical texts. https://levendwater.org/companion/append94.html see VII. “Son of David,”
ten times in Matthew, three in Mar, and three in Luke; “the end of the age”, only in Matthew; “that it might be fulfilled which was spoken,” nine times in Matthew, and nowhere else; “that which was spoken”, or “it was spoken”, fourteen times in Matthew, and nowhere else. Altogether, Matthew has sixty references to the Old Testament, for the Law and the Prophets were fulfilled in the coming of the Messiah. The verb rheō occurs twenty times in Mathew (fourteen times of the prophets, and six times in the Sermon on the Mount, rendered “say”, Matthew 5:21,27,31,33,38,43).
The question of modern critics as to the source whence the Evangelists got their material does not arise; for as in the case of (Luke 1:3)it was revealed to them “from above” (anōthen);
Genesis 38:29-30 (KJV)
29 And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, “How hast thou broken forth? this breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.”
30 And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah.
Pharaz and Zara: Hebrew Pharez and Zarah. Twins, the first of four women in this genealogy. The other three were Rahab, Ruth, and Bathsheba, Note the introversion: Hebrew, Gentile, Gentile, Hebrew, indicating the condescension of Christ in taking our nature; (affability to your inferiors and temporary disregard for differences of position or rank).
1 Chronicles 2:4-5 (KJV)
4 And Tamar his daughter in law bore him Pharez and Zerah. All the sons of Judah were five.
5 The sons of Pharez; Hezron, and Hamul.
Ruth 4:19 (KJV) And Hezron begat Ram, and Ram begat Amminadab,
1 Chronicles 2:11 (KJV) And Nahshon begat Salma, and Salma begat Boaz,
Isaiah 11:1 KJV And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of His roots:
Settled: in Nazareth. His former residence was https://levendwater.org/companion/append169.html It is not “an unsolved difficulty,” as alleged. The prophecy had been uttered by more than one prophet; therefore the reference to the Hebrew a branch is useless, as it is used of Christ only by Isaiah.
Isaiah 60:21 (KJV) Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified.
