The divine apostle Paul when he wrote to men like those today, who were interpreting with great difficulty the mysterious words of the Gospel of Christ, said with wisdom and profundity: If there are men for whom our gospel is hidden, it is so for those who are perishing, for the unbelievers whose minds the god of this world has clouded, so that they do not see shining the light of the Gospel of the glory of the Messiah who is the image of God 1. So your Fraternity will know that, if someone interprets with great difficulty, finds obscure the words of the Gospel and does not believe it, or wants to oppose it with insidious and treacherous subtleties, this is one of those for whom the Gospel is hidden, one of those who are perishing, and one of those whom God has abandoned and, so that their minds are darkened by the shadows of the god of this world, and that the light of his Gospel does not shine in their eyes, because they are not worthy of being saved, because of their disbelief and the lack of rectitude of their spirit. We learn from it that the Messiah has truly come, and we say that if he has truly come he was born, in the flesh, of the seed of David, as the prophets said of him; if he came and if he was born of the seed of David, he must necessarily also come at his time; if he came and he came at his time, and if he is born in the flesh of the seed of David, then the woman who gave birth is also by absolute necessity of the seed of David, as all these things depend on each other and are attached like the rings of a chain; they are combined and established by a necessary sequence of ideas and there is no possible hesitation on this subject.

The Genealogy of Jesus Through Mary. Open the Bible Question Form to send your own question. A: I am convinced that Luke gives the genealogy of Jesus through Mary.
The books of the contemporary New Testament offer very little substance with regard to the background of Mary, the mother of Jesus. The only readily available information can be seen in Luke, where Mary is said to have been a relative of Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, and where it is stated that Mary spent three months of her pregnancy in the house of Zechariah and Elizabeth, the parents of John the Baptist. I do dedicate unto Thee what is in my womb for Thy special service: so accept this of me: for Thou hearest and and knowest all things. I am delivered of a female child!
See this page in: Dutch. M ary was the wife of Joseph and the mother of Jesus Christwho was conceived within her by the Holy Spirit when she was a virgin. Little is known of her personal history.
I love this site. One question: Given what you've posted here, why do both Matthew and Luke give the genealogy of Joseph, rather than Mary? What are they trying to tell us?
There are two records in the Bible of the genealogy of Jesus Christ. One is in the Gospel of Matthewchapter 1; the other is in the Gospel of Lukechapter 3 Both are listed below. Matthew's account traces the line of descent from Abraham to Jesus, while Luke's account follows the ancestry from Adam to Jesus.
Jesus Christ is descended from David : If He is from the line of Davidthen certainly Joseph could not be of his immediate paternal bloodline since Joseph was not his natural father. The bloodline could only be traced through His mother, Mary. Does not the Scripture say that it is of the offspring of Davidand from Bethlehem, the village where David lived, that the Christ is to come.
We really can't take anything about Mary from the Quran since it was written so many years after the events happened, It was also written by a man with limited knowledge of the events. As for the Bible pulling facts based on historical events is acceptable, but anything spiritual or mystical needs to be left out of the work here. The birth of Mary is narrated in the Quran with references to her father as well as her mother.
