Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom

Submitted by Sohail (United Kingdom), Dec 8, 2006 at 07:23

So you think that your Christian Bible is error free, we'll see:

16and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. (Matthew 1:16)

As you can see in the above it says that Jacob was the father of Joseph but in Luke 3:23 it says the following:

23Now Jesus himself was about thirty years old when he began his ministry. He was the son, so it was thought, of Joseph, the son of Heli,

That is big error in the Christian Bible.

17Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ. (Matthew 1:17)

This verse says that Matthew there were fourteen generations from Abraham-David but we know that his wrong becuse in 1 Chronicles 3: 11-12 and 15-16 it says this:

11 Jehoram his son,
Ahaziah his son,
Joash his son,

12 Amaziah his son,
Azariah his son,
Jotham his son,

15 The sons of Josiah:
Johanan the firstborn,
Jehoiakim the second son,
Zedekiah the third,
Shallum the fourth.

16 The successors of Jehoiakim:
Jehoiachin his son,
and Zedekiah. The Royal Line After the Exile

Matthew left out four generations in his book. The four generations were Joash, Amaziah, Azaariah
