This weekly installment of KD Manes’ study provides a great chart of the geneology of Jesus from Abraham. I found it very useful. Head over and say hi!

do you happen to have any sources for this outside of the bible? how about any 1st century contemporary non-christian historians that mentioned the life, death and resurrection of jesus? (don’t try josephus’s references. they are proven 4th century ‘additions’) -KIA

Actually, Mike, this was only to show what the Bible teaches, sources outside the Bible is not the issue here. But thanks kindly for visiting anyway.
And the death, burial and resurrection wasn’t actually mentioned in the post.
Again, thanks for reading and commenting.

my comment was to question whether the geneology you show has any evidence of historicity.
i can make a genealogical tree for Frodo Baggins from the LOTR Trilogy, but that doesn’t mean much outside of the story unless i can show it to correspond to reality.
so… as for the genealogy of jesus you show, can you demontrate that it goes beyond the biblical text to actually correspond to reality?
remember as christians, your very lives here and now, and your eternal destinies rely on Jesus and the gospel being not just concordant with itself, but also actual historical reality.
so again, what 1st century contemporary, non-christian historians can be sourced to tell of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus?
as 1 cor 15 says “if christ be not risen, your faith is in vain (false)” so if the Jesus in the bible never lived or died either, he certainly couldn’t have risen (even if there was a ‘jesus’ that the story was based on and embelished from).
not sure how you could have not understood the implications of my question.

“not sure how you could have not understood the implications of my question.”
Mike. I understood clearly the implications of your question. That was not really necessary to be said.
Here is the deal. I don’t like to moderate. But, this is how things work. I wrote the post, I get to decide what it is about. It’s about WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT THE GENEALOGY. No more, no less.
In fact, the idea that the genealogy of Jesus would appear somewhere other than the Bible is actually absurd and no more than a red herring.
Anyway, thanks for coming by. Please, if you think I posted something in error, BASED ON WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS then feel free to point our my error. Any other arguments are not relevant to the point and purpose of this post. Soooooooooooo..you can respect that or go back to the trash bin.

This is useful Wally. A lot of people don’t pay much attention to genealogy in the Bible but it’s important.

It is…and a chart was really cool. KD is nice. Doesn’t interact a lot, but is very nice and knowledgeable when she does.

How can this make any sort of sense when the Pentateuch is Historical Fiction?
