Matthew 1v1-16

This is the genealogy of Jesus through Joseph his stepfather.

Jeremiah 22:30 Thus saith the LORD, Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.

Luke 3v23-38

This is the genealogy of Jesus through his mother Mary.

The line goes through David and Nathan rather than Solomon, thus bypassing Jeconiah.

Luke 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
