The Names in ( ) are for the persons who have other names that they are known as.  In God’s Word many Bible Characters have more than one name applied to them, such as, “Simon,” with his other name being, “Peter” as an example.  Also see Paul as (Saul).

D) EXPLAINING MATTHEW’S LINE AND LUKE’S LINE

 

 

We are talking about Jewish customs and economy here.  In the official records in the Temple at Jerusalem, Jesus was registered as the “first-born” of Joseph and Mary; meaning He is the Son of Joseph (see Luke 2:21).

 

All the prophecies of a Coming Messiah specified God would come through the mother; a “virgin.”

Second Kings 8:19; Psalm 22:10; Isaiah 7:14; Jeremiah 31:22; Micah 5:3-4.

 

However, the obvious prophecies, is that He would come through the “line of David:”

Second Samuel 7:12; First Chronicles 17:11; Psalm 132:11; Jeremiah 23:5; 33:15; Ezekiel 34:23-24; 37:24-25; fulfilled in Matthew 1:1; 9:27; Luke 1:32; Acts 2:30; 13:22-23.  Thus, Matthew’s account follows the kingly linage of Messiah.

 

Therefore, what is Luke’s account a record of?  Luke follows the eventual adoptive account of Messiah through Joseph adopting Mary’s child.  That an adoptive child, according to Jewish law, inherits all of the possessions of the adoptive father, please re-read the Book of Ruth.  Luke follows the line of “Nathan,” which is the Priestly line of Messiah.

 

Thus, Matthew’s list designates the Kingly line of Messiah; while Luke’s line follows that of the Priestly aspects of Messiah.  That Messiah is both King and priest see Hebrews 7:1-3.
