John 14:1-4 1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Fatherís house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

The following is the lineage of Jesus Christ. You may find it in part in the book of Ruth 4:13-22. It is in Matthew 1:1-25 and in Luke 3:23-38.


Joseph's Patriarch Tree - Matthew 1:1-25 1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, son of Abraham: 2 Abraham begot Isaac, and Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers, 3 And Judah begot Pharez and Zarah of Tamar, and Pharez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Aram, 4 And Aram begot Aminadab, and Aminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon, 5 And Salmon begot Boaz of Rahab, and Boaz begot Obed of Ruth, and Obed begot Jesse, 6 And Jesse begot David the king. And David begot Solomon of her who had been the wife of Uriah, 7 And Solomon begot Rehoboam, and Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa, 8 And Asa begot Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot Uzziah, 9 And Uzziah begot Jotham, and Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah, 10 And Hezekiah begot Manasseh, and Manasseh begot Amon, and Amon begot Josiah. 11 And Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the deportation to Babylon. 12 And after the deportation to Babylon, Jeconiah begot Salathiel, and Salathiel begot Zerubbabel, 13 And Zerubbabel begot Abiud, and Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor, 14 And Azor begot Zadok, and Zadok begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud, 15 And Eliud begot Eleazar, and Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob, 16 And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. 17 Thus all the generations from Abraham until David are fourteen generations, and from David until the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon until the Christ, fourteen generations. 18 Now the origin of Jesus Christ was in this way: His mother, Mary, after she had been engaged to Joseph, before they came together, was found to be with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 And Joseph her husband, being righteous and not willing to disgrace her openly, intended to send her away secretly. 20 But while he pondered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife, for that which has been begotten in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bear a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins. 22 Now all this has happened so that what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet might be fulfilled, saying, 23 "Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel" (which is translated, God with us). 24 And when Joseph awoke from his sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to himself his wife. 25 And he did not know her until she bore a son. And he called His name Jesus. Matthew 1:1-25 KJV


Mary's Patriarch Tree - Luke 1:1-38 23 When Jesus began his ministry he was about thirty years of age. He was the son, as was thought, of Joseph, the son of Heli, 24 the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Jannai, the son of Joseph, 25 the son of Mattathias, the son of Amos, the son of Nahum, the son of Esli, the son of Naggai, 26 the son of Maath, the son of Mattathias, the son of Semein, the son of Josech, the son of Joda, 27 the son of Joanan, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, the son of Neri, 28 the son of Melchi, the son of Addi, the son of Cosam, the son of Elmadam, the son of Er, 29 the son of Joshua, the son of Eliezer, the son of Jorim, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, 30 the son of Simeon, the son of Judah, the son of Joseph, the son of Jonam, the son of Eliakim, 31 the son of Melea, the son of Menna, the son of Mattatha, the son of Nathan, the son of David, 32 the son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of Boaz, the son of Sala, the son of Nahshon, 33 the son of Amminadab, the son of Admin, the son of Arni, the son of Hezron, the son of Perez, the son of Judah, 34 the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor, 35 the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Shelah, 36 the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech, 37 the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalaleel, the son of Cainan, 38 the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God. Luke 1:23-38 - From United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)


Mary and Joseph were both descended from David; however, Joseph was descended from David's son Solomon and Mary was descended from David's son Nathan. click here to download Joseph's genealogy in pdf format. click here to download Mary's genealogy in pdf format. My side note: You will note in Joseph's tree there are forty-two generations to Christ which is the same number mentioned in the book of Revelations which translates to three and a half years. I found that interesting. The two names other than David that are in both trees are Salathiel and Zerubbabel. ~~~ ><> ~~~~ ><> ~~~ ><> ~~~ ><> ~~~ ><> ~~~ ><> ~~~ ><>~~~ Follow the DNA Seed (a new section on this page and may become a new webpage in my website) Mary and Joseph were both descended from the seed of David, Mary from Davidís son Nathan and Joseph from Davidís son Solomon. If, as some people believe, Mary had other children, then those sons and daughters children would be nieces and nephews of Christ. To say that Christ was the uncle of any earthly children is the same as saying God was the grand uncle of earthly children and that I call heresy. That would also be the same as calling Mary and Joseph grandparents of earthly children. Nowhere in scripture does it state that Mary and Joseph became grandparents. If, as some people say, Christ had natural brothers then why did he designate the apostle John as the caregiver for his mother which he addressed as "woman?" God is our Father in heaven. Christ is our Saviour and one person in the Holy Trinity. Mary had siblings and their children would be cousins of Christ. If you call your pastor/preacher or male members of the congregation brother where you attend church, why? Is your pastor/preacher your brother? Are the male members of the congregation your brothers? You people are committing heresy when you make false claims against Christ. That also means you are making false claims against God. You better think about those statements. This may become another webpage in my website. Keep checking back. This will be continued. Copyright © Carolyn B.
