There are two genealogies given in the New Testament concerning Jesus.
The first is found in Matthew’s account in chapter one. It begins with Abraham and lists many of the kings of Israel. It continues through the deportation to Babylon and thence the return to the land. This genealogy concludes with Jacob, the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary of whom Jesus was born, who is called the Christ.
The second is found in Luke chapter three. This genealogy begins with Jesus in verse twenty-three and ends with Adam, the son of God in verse thirty-eight.
Matthew’s record is the royal line on Joseph’s (Jesus step father) side and reveals that only Jesus has a right to the throne of David.
Luke’s line records Mary’s lineage from her son all the way back to the first man, Adam, thus recording Jesus as the Son of Man.
The book of First John records a wonderful testimony. Chapter one and verse one states, “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life…”
