The Genealogical Line from Adam to Jesus

I thought I’d do something a little different. I’m going to the “bloodline” from Adam to Jesus. This is through Joseph’s (the Virgin Mary’s Joseph) line, at least according to the book of Luke (chapter 3, verses 23-38). I’ll be breaking it up, like pre-flood, post-flood, etc. I hope you enjoy!

This is pre-flood, after the banishment from the Garden of Eden.

  1. We start off with God (because God created Adam).
  2. Adam (& Eve)
  3. Seth (because Abel (the 1st born is dead, Cain doesn’t get into the lineage due to the murder.)
  4. Enosh (Seth’s son; Adam & Eve’s grandson)
  5. Kenan (Enosh’s son; Adam & Eve’s great-grandson)
  6. Mahalalel (Kenan’s son; Adam & Eve’s 2x-great-grandson)
  7. Jared (Mahalalel’s son; Adam’s 3x-great-grandson)
  8. Enoch (Jared’s son; Adam’s 4x-great-grandson; this is the man whom the Book of Enoch is made/based)
  9. Methuselah (Enoch’s son; Adam’s 5x-great-grandson; Noah’s grandpa; oldest man in the Christian & Jewish bibles)
  10. Lamech (Methuselah’s son; Adam’s 6x-great-grandson; Noah’s dad)

Now we’re gonna get into after the flood

  1. (11) Noah (Lamech’s son; Adam’s 7x-great-grandson)
  2. (12) Shem (Noah’s oldest son; Adam’s 8x-great-grandson)
  3. (13) Arphaxah (Noah’s grandson; Shem’s son; Adam’s 9x-great-grandson)
  4. (14) Cainan (Arphaxah’s son; Noah’s great-grandson; Adam’s 10x-great-grandson)
  5. (15) Shelah (Cainan’s son; Noah’s 2x-great-grandson; Adam’s 11x-great-grandson)
  6. (16) Eber (Shelah’s son; Noah’s 3x-great-grandson; Adam’s 12x-great-grandson)
  7. (17) Peleg (Eber’s son; Noah’s 4x-great-grandson; Adam’s 13x-great-grandson)
  8. (18) Reu (Peleg’s son; Noah’s 5x-great-grandson; Adam’s 14x-great-grandson)
  9. (19) Serug (Reu’s son; Noah’s 6x-great-grandson; Adam’s 15x-great-grandson)
  10. (20) Nahor (Serug’s son; Abraham’s grandpa; Noah’s 7x-great-grandson; Adam’s 16x-great-grandson)
  11. (21) Terah (Nahor’s son; Abraham’s dad; Noah’s 8x-great-grandson; Adam’s 17x-great-grandson)

This is the start of Judaism, in the Christian & Jewish bibles.

  1. (22) Abraham/Abram (Terah’s son; Noah’s 9x-great-grandson; Adam’s 18x-great-grandson. So within 18 generation, Judaism is “born.”)
  2. (23) Isaac (Abraham’s son; Noah’s 10x-great-grandson; Adam’s 19x-great-grandson)
  3. (24) Jacob/Israel (Isaac’s son; Abraham’s grandson; Noah’s 11x-great-grandson; Adam’s 20x-great-grandson)
  4. (25) Judah (Jacob/Israel’s son, his 4th born son; Abraham’s great-grandson; Noah’s 12x-great-grandson; Adam’s 21x-great-grandson)
  5. (26) Perez (Judah’s 3rd born son; Abraham’s 2x-great-grandson; Jacob’s great-grandson; Noah’s 13x-great-grandson; Adam’s 22x-great-grandson)
  6. (27) Hezron (Perez’s son; Abraham’s 3x-great-grandson; Jacob’s great-grandson; Noah’s 14x-great-grandson; Adam’s 23x-great-grandson)
  7. (28) Ram (Hezron’s son; Jacob’s 2x-great-grandson; Abraham’s 4x-great-grandson; Noah’s 15x-great-grandson; Adam’s 24x-great-grandson)
  8. (29) Amminadab (Ram’s son; Jacob’s 3x-great-grandson; Abraham’s 5x-great-grandson; Noah’s 16x-great-grandson; Adam’s 25x-great-grandson)
  9. (30) Nahshon (Amminadab’s son; Jacob’s 4x-great-grandson; Abraham’s 6x-great-grandson; Noah’s 17x-great-grandson; Adam’s 26x-great-grandson)
  10. (31) Salmon (Nahshon’s son; Jacob’s 5x-great-grandson; Abraham’s 7x-great-grandson; Noah’s 18x-great-grandson; Adam’s 27x-great-grandson; King David’s 2x-great-grandpa)
  11. (31) Boaz (Salmon’s son; Jacob’s 6x-great-grandson; Abraham’s 8x-great-grandson; Noah’s 19x-great-grandson; Adam’s 28x-great-grandson; Boaz married Ruth (Ruth 2 & 4); King David’s great-grandpa)
