Genealogy of Jesus

(and about 2500 others)

Since every person in the Bible is a direct descendant of Adam and Eve, they were all actually related to each other in one way or another. The fact that all of us are also direct descendants of Adam and Eve means that we are also (distantly) related to every singler person mentioned in the Bible. These facts caused me to desire to create a Genealogical Chart of all the names I found in the Bible.

The following Genealogical Chart includes most of the names mentioned in the Old Testament. All those names where family relationships are reasonably specific are included. (At the very end are lists of vague references that were not included.)

Such relationships are generally not mentioned in the New Testament, except for situations where there was clear importance to the relationship. This made it essentially impossible for me to include most of the names mentioned in the New Testament in this Chart.

Each line usually represents an individual person. The first number seen is the 'Generation Number' from Adam. The name is next; if alternate spellings appear in the (English) Bible, they are then shown, with a brief reference. Next, brief notes may be included about the person; this may include dates of existence. For the first 32 generations, these dates are counted in years from Adam's beginning ('Year 0'); later generations' dates refer to our present Gregorian calendar. Finally, Scriptural reference is often given for the source of the genealogical placement.

If the mate (wife, concubine, husband, etc) is known, and referred to in the Bible, that mate's name is listed below the person in italicized print. Children's names are then listed below, shifted over one space and with the 'Generation Number' being one higher, because they are one more generation separated from Adam (who is at generation #1).

A second mate would be listed after all the children, grand - children, and later progeny of the first mate were listed.

The direct genealogy of Jesus is indicated by bold names.

A few important individuals are also highlighted, such as Moses.

An Example, to show the format:

1Adam(shown in bold because forefather of Jesus)
..Eve(his wife (shown in italics))
.2 Cain(first child)('2' means 'second generation')
..3 Enoch(grand - child (through Cain)('3' means third generation)
...4 Irad(great grand - child (through Cain))
....5 Mehujael(not high - lighted - not forefather of Jesus)
.(rest of the descendants of Cain)
.
.2 Abel(second child of Adam, no known descendants)
.2 Sheth, (Seth)(third child of Adam, bold because forefather of Jesus)
..3 Enosh, (Enos)(grand - child (through Sheth)) (third generation)
...4 Kenan, (Cainan)(great grand - child (through Sheth))
....5 Mahalaleel, (Maleleel)
.....6 Jered, (Jared) (sixth generation)
.....rest of the descendants of Seth, which is most of mankind!

(Luke's genealogy of Jesus (which follows marked MG) goes from Nathan rather than Solomon - many more generations of which are listed than from other Bible sources. Some feel that Luke was referring to the genealogy of Mary and not Joseph)

(From here on, the chart no longer shifts names over by the generations, and simply gives the generation number from Adam.

In our modern Bibles, it seems to be true that Matthew's genealogy may be missing a few generations. It had certainly already left out confirmed generations 40, 41, 42 as noted above. If none are missing from here on, that means that about 562 years passed during 12 generations (#52 to #64). This means an average of 48 year old new fathers! (at that time, the average whole human lifetime was about 35 yrs.) This additionally implies that Matthew's listing left out some generations.

62 Jacob, (Heli)
63 Joseph

64 Jesus

Continuing Luke's Genealogy (of Mary??) If this genealogy contains all the intermediate generations then the 562 years is over 21 generations, or an average for the newborn father's age of 27 years, much more likely than Matthew's 48 years.But this still suggests that the listings are not complete, for whatever reason the Lord chose. (In order that this chart be compatible with the Matthew listing above, I have found it necessary to create (imaginary) fractional generations, to be able to fit all the Luke generations in the space that is provided per Matthew!)
