Matthew begins with . . 14 generations from Abraham to David 14 generations from David to captivity 14 generations from captivity to Jesus Christ We know of the dates with great accuracy 2100 BCE to 1010 BCE 1010 BCE to 586 BCE 586 BCE to 4/7 BCE Are these accurate geneologies? Had a student (I'm preparing for teaching "Chronology of the OT" next semester) who said something just didn't "add up" here. Thoughts?
