4. The geneaology of Jesus

introduction

December 25. The baby is born. This is excerpt 4 from  a  page about Jesus I am working with and will publish after Easter 2019.
It is time to share some facts about Jesus as told about by the Gospel of Matthew and Luke.

Geneaology of Jesus

Matthew and Luke describes the Geneaology of Jesus in different ways. You find a Maternal ancestry in Luke.  Luke’s genealogy is of Mary, with Eli being her father, while Matthew’s describes a paternal genealogy.

Matthew starts with Abraham, while Luke begins with Adam.
The lists are identical between Abraham and David (I marked these parts with green text), but differ radically from Jesus to David and from Abraham  backwards to Adam in Luke. ( I marked these text in red )

To make them comparable, I reordered so both start from Jesus.

3. the name of Jesus

introduction

December 25. The baby is born. This is excerpt 3 from  a  page about Jesus I am working with and will publish after Easter 2019.

The name of Jesus

The name “Jesus, son of Mary” written in Arabic calligraphy
(Isa ibn Maryam), 
followed by “peace be upon him.” بلال الدويك

The name of Jesus appears appears 72 time(s) in 59 verse(s) in Quran in Mohsin Khan translation in the Quran.(  Read more in  www.vox.com.

In the Bible it is of course more. You find the word 7990 times. https://www.catholic.org/search/bible/?q=jesus

 Iēsous (Greek: Ἰησοῦς), the Greek form of the Hebrew name Yeshua (Hebrew: ישוע‎). As its roots lie in the name Yeshua, it is etymologically related to another biblical name, Joshua.

Jesus Christ is  called यीशु मसीह (Yīśu masīha) in Hindi. very similar to the Arabic Isa.

What does the name mean?

“The name Jesus means ‘Savior’. It is the same name as Joshua in the Old Testament. It is given to our Lord because “He saves His people from their sins.The Song of Solomon describes the experience of many, when it says, “Your name is oil poured forth” (Song of Solomon 1:3)” (Source: https://www.christianity.com/jesus/is-jesus-god/names-of-jesus/what-does-the-name-jesus-mean.html )

2. A unpleasant start for Joseph, Mary and Jesus.

introduction

We are approaching December 25. This is excerpt 2 from  a  page about Jesus I am working with and will publish after Easter 2019.

Problems, problems

Matthew1:19   says: 

“Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly”

Joseph was  thinking about exposing Mary  to public disgrace with a divorce but he had according to Matthew1:20 a revealing dream:

20 He had made up his mind to do this when suddenly the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because she has conceived what is in her by the Holy Spirit.

Joseph got that saving dream. But Marys and Josephs neighbors? probably not.

Let us move to Nazareth were this probably happened and imagine yourself outisde your house. there you met  the  beautiful young girl neighbor of yours since many years and you see that she is pregnant.  She is yet not married. What   the first question you probably will ask is…. 

“Who is the father of the baby?”

2000 years ago the tollerance was not like it is today. Not only.

the rule followed at that time, was among others

 Deuteronomy 22:20. Imagine a girl who was raped. Deuteronomy makes no distinction. it simply says 20 “But if the accusation that the girl cannot show evidence of virginity is substantiated, 21 she must be taken out, and at the door of her father’s house her fellow-citizens must stone her to death for having committed an infamy in Israel “. To remember that not all girls bleed the first time they had sex.

How about Jesus?

Joseph saved Mary thanks to the dream he had. But what can happen with the baby, in this case Jesus?

Deuteronomy 23:2  says that 3 “No half-breed may be admitted to the assembly of Yahweh; not even his descendants to the tenth generation may be admitted to the assembly of Yahweh.”

The newborn (Jesus) is to be  repudiated.
