Funny Bible Quote #22

The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;

And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;

And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;

And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;

And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;

And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;

And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias;

And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;

And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;

And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:

And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;

And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;

And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;

And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;

And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

~ Matthew 1:1-16, KJV

[Why is it funny? In 38 other examples, the lineage is father to son, but Joseph has no relation to Jesus. Jesus is only a “son of David” if he is related to Joseph.]


  1. Now you know why European royalty ordered the Jews to get a name everyone could keep track of. Most of them created names based on their occupations, thus.. Goldstein, Silverman, and the like. Also made it easier to keep track of who paid their taxes.

  2. Looks like your website is under attack from supernatural forces...

    you really need to add comment moderation to your blasphemy...

  3. Post all you like. I don't support censorship.


If your comment is too long, break it into multiple comments and post them all.
