2000 years ago Jews in the Galilee, in Judea, and outside of Eretz Israel, the Land of Israel, were fully convinced that Yeshua (Jesus), the inspiring rabbi-teacher and the miracles performer, was the son of a man called Joseph (Luke 3:23), “of the house of David” (Luke 1:27; 2:4). Many believed that his mother was Miriam from Nazareth (John 6:42).
At the very beginning of Matthew’s Gospel in the New Testament (NT), the apostle wrote about Messiah Yeshua’s family-tree as follows: “This is the genealogy of Yeshua the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham” (Matt 1:1).
As a matter of principle, according to biblical narration all parentage lists refer only to the ancestry’s fathers, neglecting to mention the mothers’ names.
