The Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah

Family-of-Jesus-e1401390232612

When I read the book of Matthew especially on Jesus genealogy, I find it hard to know whose father and child is such and such because of how it was written. So for better understanding, I’ve decided to graph it in a family tree to have a better visualization of it.

So here goes the genealogy of Jesus:

ABRAHAM

ISAAC

JACOB

JUDAH & HIS BROTHERS

PEREZ & ZERAH
(Parents: Judah & Tamar)

HEZRON
(Father: Perez)

RAM

AMMINADAB

NAHSHON

SALMON

BOAZ
(Parents: Salmon & Rahab)

OBED
(Parents: Boaz & Ruth)

JESSE

KING DAVID

SOLOMON
(Parents: King David & Bathsheba)

REHOBOAM

ABIJAH

ASA

JEHOSHAPHAT

JEHORAM

UZZIAH

JOTHAM

AHAZ

HEZEKIAH

MANASSEH

AMON

JOSIAH

JECONIAH & HIS BROTHERS
(Father: Josiah at the time of the exile to Babylon)

SHEALTIEL
(Father: Jeconiah after the exile to Babylon)

ZERUBBABEL

ABIHUD

ELIAKIM

AZOR

ZADOK

AKIM

ELIHUD

ELEAZAR

MATTHAN

JACOB

JOSEPH – Husband of Mary

JESUS (Who is called the Messiah)

I hope this would help you too as you continue reading God’s Word and in memorizing the names and their stories and how it can be applied in your own life as you go along in your study.
