The Genealogy of Christ is detailed in two passages of the Gospels: Luke 3:23–38 and Matthew 1:1–17.

Background

  • Luke's genealogy goes back to Adam, through a minor son of David, Nathan and apparently again to Joseph.
  • Matthew's genealogy commences with Abraham and then from King David's son Solomon follows the legal line of the kings through Jeconiah, the king whose descendants were cursed, to Joseph, legal father of Jesus.
