This page is part of the Biblical Tree Merge project.

When merging big trees, some of which contain plenty of errors, it is often easy to get confused as to which version is correct. So this page is a quick reference to use when merging biblical trees. As such, it will list various "main" lines in this tree.

Adam ==> King David ==> Zerubbabel

List of fifty-four generations of the "main line" of the tree from Adam until Zerubbabel.

  1. Adam
  2. Seth
  3. Enosh
  4. Cainan
  5. Mahalalel
  6. Jared
  7. Enoch
  8. Methuselah
  9. Lamech
  10. Noah
  1. Shem
  2. Arphaxad
  3. Shelach
  4. Eber
  5. Peleg
  6. Reu
  7. Serug
  8. Nahor
  9. Terah
  10. Abraham
  1. Isaac
  2. Jacob
  3. Judah
  4. Pharez

  9. Josiah
  10. Jehoiakin
  1. Jechoniah
  2. Shealtiel
  3. Pedaiah
  4. Zerubbabel


King David ==> Jesus

Based on Wikipedia article Genealogy of Jesus. This list follows the genealogy listed in Luke 3:23–38, where Jesus is described as the descendant of Nathan, son of King David.

Luke's list as far as King David, is in complete agreement with the "Old Testament" list above (with the minor addition of Cainan between Shelah and Arphaxad, as found in the Septuagint, but omitted in the traditional Bible text). As such, this list here, will start with King David.

The one MAJOR difference between the list in Luke, and the traditional line followed in the Geni tree, is that Luke has the first Exilarch Zerubbabel, "son of" Shealtiel, as descendant of this obscure Davidic line, while other, earlier sources have Zerubbabel as a direct near-descendant (great-grandson) of Jechoniah, the next-to-last King of the House of David. Luke's version does NOT make any sense, as "his" Zerubbabel would be a "nobody", having no-real claim to this Line/Title. As such, the "main-line" tree follows Luke as far Shealtiel, and then has a pointer to the "main" Zerubbabel, where the line is continued, through his son Rhesa.

This line has many duplicated or similar names (even "duplicate" father-son pairs, such as Levi-->Matthat). As such, it is VERY common to find completely mangled versions of it.
Great care MUST be taken to not mess it up when merging in new copies.
