					Genealogy of Jesus: Knowing About the Genealogy of the Savior


Everybody knows Jesus and everybody knows what he stands for and what he
did for all mankind. However, you have to consider how Jesus came to this
world and who his ancestors were. Besides, without his ancestors, there
wouldn’t even be any Jesus. You have to consider that you also have to be
thankful for Jesus' ancestors because without them, there wouldn’t be any
savior at all and Christianity wouldn’t have existed.

Many people lives following the words of Christ and God. Many people have
integrated the words of God through Christ in their life and let it serve
as a daily guide on how to live their life. You have to consider that a
lot of people follow Christ and even though Christ was born and spread
the word of God thousands of years ago, Christianity and Jesus Christ are
still alive in many people's hearts.

So, where did Jesus come from and who were his ancestors? If you read the
bible, you will know about Christ's genealogy as stated in the book of
Matthew and Luke. You will see that Jesus' genealogy is traced back to
King David and from there, it goes back to Abraham. However, there are
significant differences about the genealogy of Christ between the two
books. In Abraham up to King David, the genealogy is quite similar.
However, starting from King David, Matthew and Luke explains the
genealogy quite differently.

In Matthew, you will see that it will start with Solomon and the lineage
will proceed to the kinds of Judah and includes Jeconiah. From there, it
skipped up to four generations. You will also see that the genealogy of
Jesus will state that Jesus Christ is the legal heir to the throne of
Israel.

In Luke, you will see that it will also start with King David. However,
it will proceed with the different son of King David. Instead of King
Solomon as stated in Matthew, you will see that Luke states that the
lineage of Jesus will start with King David's other son named Nathan. The
two different genealogies have been debated by historians and
genealogists for years. Up until today, the debate is still on going and
many theories and facts are coming out.

You will see that all will be quite confusing and very difficult to
explain. There are quite a lot of people involved and some people even
said that the genealogy of Jesus is quite impossible to interpret because
of the contradicting genealogy written by Matthew and Luke.

However, no matter how complicated it is, you still have to consider that
Jesus is still considered as the son of God. His mother, Mary is
considered to give birth to Jesus Christ as a virgin. You have to
consider that whatever the genealogy of Jesus is, he is still considered
to be the savior of man.

If you like to see more of Jesus' genealogy, you can read the Bible from
the Gospels, Matthew 1:2-16 and Luke 3:23-38. You can have your own
theories but at the end, Jesus will still be considered as the savior of
man.
