The genealogy according to Matthew
* Luke's genealogy goes back to Adam, through a minor son of David, Nathan and apparently again to Joseph.
* Matthew's genealogy commences with Abraham and then from King David's son Solomon follows the legal line of the kings through Jeconiah, the king whose descendants were cursed, to Joseph, legal father of Jesus.
* Christ's ancestry in art; the [[http://orthodoxwiki.org/St. Nicholas Monastery Andros Greece|Root of Jesse]] icon
