    Matthew 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

    Why do we have the genealogy of Joseph and not of Mary?
  • Mark Diffin
    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!
  • Brian Dougherty
    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
  • BSP
    Verse 19 This shows the deep love that Joseph had for Mary. Even though he didn't understand fully what was happening he didn't want Mary to be put to death or publicly shamed.

    His people are all that believe in Him. Jews and gentiles.

    Adam bloodline
  • Warretheth
    From what I understand, both the natural line (traceable) in Luke 3, and the royal line (traceable)of Matt. 1, are linked directly to Jesus Christ. Mary was in the natural line but because women were not reckoned in genealogies, Joseph the legal sin of Heli took Mary’s place from Jesus back to Adam. The royal line in Matthew 1 is thru Joseph back to Abraham.

    What did Jesus say about it? He said that we all maybe saved the shedding of His blood and Him being the sacrifice for our sins. He suffered for mankind that means all of us. The Lord says in His word He is no respect of persons. He also said don't add to His word and don't take away from it. God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost are real.
    I have a question, what was the blood line through which Mary the mother of Jesus came?
  • Mary s
    Mary's mom was from tribe of Levi, her dad from tribe of Judah, therefore Christ is called the King Priest.
  • Ondray DeAngelo Pearson
    According to Hebrews 7:14 our Lord and Christ is from the tribe of Judah. This is how we know the identification of this person because we know in Deuteronomy chapter 28 the tribe of Judah we're black slaves that were taken in captivity put on slave ships brought to America and sold to other people.

    Jesus is from the line of David through Virgin Mary His Mother.
  • Dallas Brooks
    Jesus is of the line of David through Solomon who was the chosen seed not Nathan who was the forefather of Mary. Hint: Mary had sex with Joseph her husband not Gabriel the angel. Hint: Angels don't have sex nor commit adultery.
  • Stanjett
    Mary did not have sex with her husband until after Jesus was born. The Holy Ghost of God is Jesus real Father.
  • Adam
    Scriptures I know of that indicates angels might be able to have sex. Genesis 19:5 men of Sodom wanted to have sex with the angels, and some think that Genesis 6:4 talks about angels having relations with people. It also says some look like normal people Heb. 1:14, Hebrews 13:2, etc.
  • Andrew
    Angels don't have sexual intercourse, they are spirits. The thing is that there is a misunderstanding, the sons of God that came to the earth and had progeny the annunaki , very likely were beings from other planets extraterrestrial . Many gods of different religions were just extraterrestrial aliens using advanced technology that were misinterpreted as gods.

    Gloria no body from the tribe of Judah impregnated Mary but she was the connection between Judah and God She was impregnated by the living word of God He was the living word made flesh and blood according to scrip.Jesus told the Jews you are from beneath i am from above you are of this world i am not of this world. God Almighty was the one who impregnated Mary BY HIS WORD THE GOOD/GODLY SEED. GBU
  • Gloria Tauzin
    So Jesus is from the linage of David through his stepfather Joseph Is that correct
  • Lorral Weaver
    I believe that it is more the blood line in itself that was clean, rather than the character of the people itself.

    Matthew 1:20
    “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 Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

    Luke 18: 38
    And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David,
    have mercy on me.

    42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight thy faith has saved thee.
  • Tom
    IMHO (based on my study and understanding ), Mary, being a virgin and chosen by God the Father to bear His Son, Jesus, was blessed. Obviously, a virgin conceiving without "knowing" a man is a miracle by God. But, Mary, unlike Jesus, had an earthly father and the sin nature of Adam since it is the father that contributes the blood to the conception. She rejoiced in God "her Savior". Jesus saves!

    More people's need to start reading the bible
  • Nellie hamilton
    God had to find a Godly woman with a clean channel that has never been used so his son could be born clean in order to carry out the mission he sent him for we should all thank God for this precious gift he gave us
    What man will hold the name of JESUS, even the Christ child, in all unrighteousness? And what will he gain? Do not all of GOD'S chosen elect receive the truth in their hearts?
    Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas...…"should be Judah";

    Genesis 3:14,15
    And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
    And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel
  • Bruce
    The Only Thing Pure about The Blood Line was Pure Sin: David committed Adultery and murder. Tamar Played a Harlot and had Twins by Judah. Lot had Sons by His Daughters. The Lineage is Just like Us Today, Lies, Stealing, Murder, Adultery, Prostitution. We All Need a Savior! / She Shall Bring Forth a Son and Thou Shall Call His Name Jesus for He Shall Save His People from Their Sins. Matthew 1: 21
