  • I can't personally, but there are historic records available that trace at least back to his grandparents.

  • And here is the genealogy from the book of Luke first chapter, Joseph's side of the family. 23 Furthermore, Jesus himself, when he commenced [his work], was about thirty years old, being the son, as the opinion was, of Joseph, [son] of He´li, 24 [son] of Mat´that, [son] of Le´vi, [son] of Mel´chi, [son] of Jan´na·i, [son] of Joseph, 25 [son] of Mat·ta·thi´as, [son] of A´mos, [son] of Na´hum, [son] of Es´li, [son] of Nag´ga·i, 26 [son] of Ma´ath, [son] of Mat·ta·thi´as, [son] of Sem´e·in, [son] of Jo´sech, [son] of Jo´da, 27 [son] of Jo·an´an, [son] of Rhe´sa, [son] of Ze·rub´ba·bel, [son] of She·al´ti·el, [son] of Ne´ri, 28 [son] of Mel´chi, [son] of Ad´di, [son] of Co´sam, [son] of El·ma´dam, [son] of Er, 29 [son] of Jesus, [son] of E·li·e´zer, [son] of Jo´rim, [son] of Mat´that, [son] of Le´vi, 30 [son] of Sym´e·on, [son] of Judas, [son] of Joseph, [son] of Jo´nam, [son] of E·li´a·kim, 31 [son] of Me´le·a, [son] of Men´na, [son] of Mat´ta·tha, [son] of Nathan, [son] of David, 32 [son] of Jes´se, [son] of O´bed, [son] of Bo´az, [son] of Sal´mon, [son] of Nah´shon, 33 [son] of Am·min´a·dab, [son] of Ar´ni, [son] of Hez´ron, [son] of Pe´rez, [son] of Judah, 34 [son] of Jacob, [son] of Isaac, [son] of Abraham, [son] of Te´rah, [son] of Na´hor, 35 [son] of Se´rug, [son] of Re´u, [son] of Pe´leg, [son] of E´ber, [son] of She´lah, 36 [son] of Ca·i´nan, [son] of Ar·pach´shad, [son] of Shem, [son] of Noah, [son] of La´mech, 37 [son] of Me·thu´se·lah, [son] of E´noch, [son] of Ja´red, [son] of Ma·ha´la·le·el, [son] of Ca·i´nan, 38 [son] of E´nosh, [son] of Seth, [son] of Adam, [son] of God.
  • They could, except that there's two conflicting and mutually exclusive accounts of Jesus' genealogy in the Bible as they both attempt to connect him to the house of David. Which, of course, are both moot points if Joe Hovah was his father and not Joseph...
  • Here some references: "The genealogy of Jesus through either one or both of his earthly parents (Mary and Joseph) is given by two passages from the Gospels, Matthew 1:2–16 and Luke 3:23–38. Both of them trace Christ's line back to King David and from there on to Abraham; Luke traces the line all the way back to Adam. These lists are identical between Abraham and David, but they differ radically from that point onward."

  • Perry already mentions the lineage of Jesus through the Gospel of Matthew. Luke, Chapter 3 reports it this way: 23 Furthermore, Jesus himself, when he commenced [his work], was about thirty years old, being the son, as the opinion was, of Joseph, [son] of He´li, 24 [son] of Mat´that, [son] of Le´vi, [son] of Mel´chi, [son] of Jan´na•i, [son] of Joseph, 25 [son] of Mat•ta•thi´as, [son] of A´mos, [son] of Na´hum, [son] of Es´li, [son] of Nag´ga•i, 26 [son] of Ma´ath, [son] of Mat•ta•thi´as, [son] of Sem´e•in, [son] of Jo´sech, [son] of Jo´da, 27 [son] of Jo•an´an, [son] of Rhe´sa, [son] of Ze•rub´ba•bel, [son] of She•al´ti•el, [son] of Ne´ri, 28 [son] of Mel´chi, [son] of Ad´di, [son] of Co´sam, [son] of El•ma´dam, [son] of Er, 29 [son] of Jesus, [son] of E•li•e´zer, [son] of Jo´rim, [son] of Mat´that, [son] of Le´vi, 30 [son] of Sym´e•on, [son] of Judas, [son] of Joseph, [son] of Jo´nam, [son] of E•li´a•kim, 31 [son] of Me´le•a, [son] of Men´na, [son] of Mat´ta•tha, [son] of Nathan, [son] of David, 32 [son] of Jes´se, [son] of O´bed, [son] of Bo´az, [son] of Sal´mon, [son] of Nah´shon, 33 [son] of Am•min´a•dab, [son] of Ar´ni, [son] of Hez´ron, [son] of Pe´rez, [son] of Judah, 34 [son] of Jacob, [son] of Isaac, [son] of Abraham, [son] of Te´rah, [son] of Na´hor, 35 [son] of Se´rug, [son] of Re´u, [son] of Pe´leg, [son] of E´ber, [son] of She´lah, 36 [son] of Ca•i´nan, [son] of Ar•pach´shad, [son] of Shem, [son] of Noah, [son] of La´mech, 37 [son] of Me•thu´se•lah, [son] of E´noch, [son] of Ja´red, [son] of Ma•ha´la•le•el, [son] of Ca•i´nan, 38 [son] of E´nosh, [son] of Seth, [son] of Adam, [son] of God. (NWT) translation So the next question would be, why do the genealogies of Jesus Christ as given by Matthew and by Luke differ? The difference in nearly all the names in Luke’s genealogy of Jesus as compared with Matthew’s is quickly resolved in the fact that Luke traced the line through David’s son Nathan, instead of Solomon as did Matthew. (Luke 3:31; Matthew 1:6, 7) Luke evidently follows the ancestry of Mary, thus showing Jesus’ natural descent from David, while Matthew shows Jesus’ legal right to the throne of David by descent from Solomon through Joseph, who was legally Jesus’ father. I hope that this helps.
  • 7-13-2017 It concerns the Hebrew word zemach, which means branch. You can research that word on your own. It was used in four prophecies of the coming savior. Tthe savior was prophesied as a servant, a king, a man, and the son of God. There are five prophecies, but the reference to a king is repeated in Jeremiah, so there are four different aspects of his life to be documented. Each gospel treats one of these four aspects. Matthew is the story of a king. The genealogy in Matthew is the royal line, in ascending order because a king traces his ascent to the throne. It is in Matthew that we are told of wise men bringing gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh: the traditional gifts to a king. It is in Matthew that another king tries to murder the infant Jesus to protect his own status. It is in Matthew that Jesus declares most of the new, stricter interpretations of the law of Moses, acting on his kingly authority. In Matthew we see the pageantry of an angel rolling the stone away from the tomb and sitting upon it. The other gospels just say the tomb was open. Mark is the story of a servant. It begins, with only a slight preamble, where Jesus's ministry begins. Very little of what Jesus said is recorded, since a servant's opinions and pronouncements are important only insofar as they come from his master. His last words are not recorded, he just "cried with a loud voice." Mark is a short, terse record of where Jesus went and what he did. There is no genealogy because a servant has none. Luke is the story of a man. As such it has a man's genealogy, recorded in descending order because a man traces his descent from an ancestor. The genealogy in Luke is the legal line, beginning with "as was supposed", which is a legal term meaning "determined by law". The genealogy in Matthew is the kingly line, recorded in ascending order because a king traces his ascent to the throne. The genealogy in Luke says so-and-so "son of" so-and-so, and some of the names were in fact adopted sons. But in Matthew it says so-and-so "begat" so-and-so, a purely human genealogy. Mark has no genealogy because a servant has none. John has a very short genealogy: he is the son of God. His last words on the cross, "It is finished", recall his first recorded words, "Wist ye not that I must be about my father's business?"
  • Can't you just print one off of familysearch.org?
  • There are two main genealogies in the NT. one in Matthew and one in Luke. Both are accurate but there is some confusion unless one reads closely. Matthew is the lineage of Joseph, Mary's betrothed husband. The second is Mary's lineage. Both lineages line back to King David so Joseph and Mary were actually distant cousins. They lined back to David, but different wives of David. There is also a genealogy listed in Gen. 5 from Adam forward towards King David. The genealogy in Gen. 5 has an interesting hidden information speaking of Jesus Christ through the names listed.

  • Technically he can have no "family tree" as God does not have a family. But in reality he is just another man on the prophetic lineage.
  • The historic records are based on Joseph, Mary and His brothers in the New Testament by what the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus wrote. (Matthew 1:18-25), (Matthew 12:46; 13:55) In the genealogy of the Messiah: Luke 3:23-38 "Jesus, when He began His ministry, was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) 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. To further define this tree in Scripture: Jeremiah 23:5 "Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous [Branch], and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the Earth."
