Preview of Wed’s show –

I will be discussing the genealogies of Jesus found in Matthew and Luke – and we will see that they different, and why this is not a contradiction.

Matthew;s gospel
16 And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ. 

Luke’s gospel
23 Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, the son of Heli.

The genealogies of Jesus. They are found in Luke and Matthew. Last week we covered Matthews Genealogies, this week we will look at Luke’s genealogy of Jesus. The first thing that you will notice is that they are different. Matthew gives the line through Joseph, the legal line that shows that Jesus was heir to the throne of David. Luke’s gives the physical line through Mary and traces it all the way back to Adam. The common descendant is David.

Will have the study of Revelation up on Saturday.
