Luke’s Lineage of Jesus

As discussed in an earlier article about the two genealogies of Jesus, there are 2 different listings of Jesus’ ancestors in the Bible. For further reference, here is the lineage of Jesus as told in Luke 3:23. And for comparison, you can see the other lineage from Matthew 1:1.

Jesus, son of Joseph
son of Heli, son of Matthat
son of Levi, son of Melki
son of Jannai, son of Joseph
son of Mattathias, son of Amos
son of Nahum, son of Esli
son of Naggai, son of Maath
son of Mattathias, son of Semein
son of Josech, son of Joda
son of Joanan, son of Rhesa
son of Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel
son of Neri, son of Melki
son of Addi, son of Cosam
son of Elmadam, son of Er
son of Joshua, son of Eliezer
son of Jorim, son of Matthat
son of Levi, son of Simeon
son of Judah, son of Joseph
son of Jonam, son of Eliakim
son of Melea, son of Menna
son of Mattatha, son of Nathan
son of David, son of Jesse
son of Obed, son of Boaz
son of Salmon, son of Nashson
son of Amminadab, son of Ram
son of Hezron, son of Perez
son of Judah, son of Jacob
son of Isaac, son of Abraham
son of Terah, son of Nahor
son of Serug, son of Reu
son of Peleg, son of Eber
son of Shelah, son of Cainan
son of Arphaxad, son of Shem
son of Noah, son of Lamech
son of Methuselah, son of Enoch
son of Jared, son of Mahalalel
son of Kenan, son of Enosh
son of Seth, son of Adam
son of God.

Compared to the other lineage in Matthew, this one is in reverse order. Sorry to be confusing but I thought it best to leave it as it stands from the Bible.
