The Jesus Genealogy

In church the pastor has been using Matthew 1 as the reference for his sermons. This is where the lineage of Jesus is laid out by the disciple Matthew. Lots of very interesting things about the people listed and stuff like that but it also made me wonder something I’ve never thought about before.

Is there someone alive today that’s in the family lineage of Jesus?

-me, last week

I only did a brief online search and nothing really turned up but it’s fascinating to me to think there might be people alive today who could trace their lineage back to Mary and/or Joseph. I’m not saying Jesus has any direct descendents because I don’t believe he ever had children or got married. But he had brothers and sisters and surely they had children and those children had children.

Fascinating stuff! Thanks for dropping in…
