  • Viola M Arps on Matthew 1
    Why do we have the genealogy of Joseph and not of Mary?
  • Mark Diffin on Matthew 1
    Virgil, Absolutely great question. Why indeed. The geneology of Joseph is irrelevant since he is not the blood father, and of Mary is also irrelevant since in Jewish law the tribe ONLY goes after the father, as long as the mother is Jewish. There is only 1 answer, but I cannot say it here!

    Jewish Society is based upon a Patriarchal Male system. God promised Abraham, because he listened to his Voice, that through his seed all Nations would be Blessed. Genesis 22:18
