    Very excited to start this journey in parallel to Tom Bradford's work in Matthew as well.
    I will as you what I asked him, The Genealogy of Matthew despite what the translation says in Matthew's lineage, Vs 17 Thus there were fourteen (14) generations in all from Abraham to David ( which there is if one counts them), fourteen (14) from DAvid to the Exile to Babylon ( which there is when one counts them), and fourteen from the exile to the Messiah. ( Here is where we run into a problem From the exile to Messiah, as recorded in Matthew is NOT 14 generations, it is 13.
    If we begin in Matthew 1: 2. and we expect there to be 14X3 (sections of geneology denotations) is 42 (names /generation) that we should expect.

    If we align Both Luke and Matthew's geneology they parellel from Abraham (where Matthew begins) all the way up to David. And then… It splits. Matthew takes on Solomon's Line. Luke takes up Nathan's line. This is a problem because both attest right up to the Birth of Messiah "Joseph THE FATHER OF "Messiah" . So.. who is right? Was it Nathan's line, Or Solomon's line that we find Messiah born from? This is imperative to understand the CORRECT lineage to DAVID.
    In Matthew's lineage, Joseph's father is said to be "Jacob"
    In Luke's lineage, Joseph's father is said to be Heli.
    Joseph (Husband of Mary) cannot have 2 father's. Which is the correct line.
    Is it possible Shem Tov's Hebrew Matthew accounts it correctly? Where the Yosef described as abi Miraim ( Joseph father of Miriam Mother of Jesus… could indeed be the correct lineage?
    Are we not to consider the literal biological blood line of Jesus back to DAvid for a prophetic validiation of Jesus' rightful heriitage to king/kinship of David?
    These are the questions I have that no one wants to take on
    Matthews geneology Obed
    So the 14 generations from Abraham to DAvid. Jesse
    Matthew's accounting David
    1. Abraham * Nathan * the lineage dramatically differs. from here on out .
    2. Isaac Mattatha
    3. Jacob Menna
    4. Judah Melea
    5. Perez Eliakim
    6.. Hezron Jonam
    7. Ram Joseph
    8.. Amminadab Judah
    9. Nahshon Simeon
    10. Salmon Levi
    11. Boaz Mattat
    12. Obed Jorim
    13. Jesse Eliezer
    14 David Joshua

    Then the 14 Generations from David to the Exile.
    1. Solomon Er
    2. Rehoboam Elmadam
    3.Abijar Cosam
    4. Asa Addi
    5.Jehosphaphat Melki
    6. Abijah Neri
    7. Jehoram Sheltiel
    8 Uzziah Zerubbabel
    9 Jotham Rhesa
    10. Ahaz Joanan
    11. Hezekiah Joda
    12. Manasseh Josech
    13. Amon Semein
    14. Josiah Mattathias

    So vs. 12. "After the Exile to Babylon:
    1. Jeconiah Maath
    2. Shealtiel Naggai
    3. Zerubbabel Esli
    4. Abiud Nahum
    5. Eliakim Amos
    6. Azor Mattathias
    7. Zadok Josef
    8. Akim Jannai
    9. Eliud Malki
    10. Eleazar Levi
    11. Matthan Mattat
    12. Jacob Heli
    13. Joseph "Husband of Mary". Joseph ( Luke's words "thought to be" father of Jesus)

    14 Messiah Messiah

    The Luke accounting is dramatically different after King David, following Nathan's line, all the way down to Mary

    I am so Blessed to have found your studies. Thank you. And yes sadly the Word of our Lord, is being twisted and miss handled by too many today. I don't believe in woman preaching. Unfortunately today, men are trying to be woman and woman want to be men. No I am not just talking about the gay life style, but in how men and woman are behaving. Men don't want to do any heavy lifting, they want easy lives where they don't have to do more than sit in a chair and type. Then you have woman who want to go be pro boxers and wrestling maniacs, and want to be like men doing men's jobs. We where not designed for it. What is going on. The world has flipped. OK we know what's going on. Jesus warned us of it. But wow I never thought it would be this crazy. We need to hang on to Jesus with all we have, because we are in for one crazy rough ride. But wow how Glorious will His return be. Blessings to you and your ministry.

    Was it intentional that you skipped over the controversial "Rhachab" in verse 5? Dr. Kormon you are always so good about pointing out error and the verifying all things in the Greek. Rhachab in the Greek is a different name than that of "Rahab the harlot" of Jericho. It's a common error in Christianity that Christians teach that Rahab the harlot became the mother of Boaz. Yeshua did not descend from a harlot.

    If you are going to not permit a woman to teach, then you need to burn every book a woman of GOD every wrote, because that is a woman teaching. When it comes to Paul's commands, they do not equal the Law given by YHVH. When it comes to that kind of "gray" subject, we need to go back to the 613 Laws given to Moses, not what a commentator says in a letter in response to an issue a church was having. The ONLY commandments we need to obey is GOD's that HE Himself personally gave us. Paul's letter are not equal to the Law in the Torah.
    I personally do not believe in women pastors, but I don't believe in pastors in general. Yeshua is our pastor. There is too much room for error when we man a man our "Rabbi." Yeshua said that we have only One Rabbi and that is him. I don't believe a woman should be head of the household or spiritual head of the family, UNLESS she is married to an ungodly man. Some of us are/were. Mine was so ungodly that he divorced me after 37 years. He walked away from GOD after being a "Christian" for 25 years, and destroyed his family. Now our five adult offspring are following in their earthly father's footsteps because G-D has allowed him to not only get away with it, but He has rewarded him with riches and a job promotion. I am the ONLY one seeking after Elohim. I sit up in my room, all alone and cry for the family I lost.

    Many of the language was written in Koine not Greek for a proper
    term. By knowing the term Koine, you would therefore understand that it was a language chosen for everyone.
    Wonderful teaching Dr Barukh.
