Genealogy and Jewish Heritage - Birth of Jesus
Biblical answers to questions relating to the genealogy and Jewish heritage of Jesus Christ.
Genealogy and Jewish Heritage
- At first glance, Matthew's and Luke's genealogies may seem contradictory, but a closer examination reveals the reasons for their differences.
- Doesn't it seem a little unusual that foreign dignitaries had come from the East, claiming to have been led to that very area by some star, and were looking for one who is called the King of the Jews?
- For generations the promises were repeated—from father to son, from mother to daughter, from family to family, from the older to the younger, and Jewish children were taught to pray for the Messiah’s appearance. By the time you get to the first century, you have all these centuries of expectation built up.
