Lightspeed Lab Luke Challenge Beginner Question #19
Matthew, writing to Jews, presents Jesus as the King of the Jews, and thus starts the lineage with Abraham. Luke, on the other hand, presents Jesus as the Son of Man, a human, and thus goes all the way back to Adam. Mark has no genealogy because he is presenting Jesus to the Romans as a servant, and no servant needs a background. John presents Jesus to the whole world as the Son of God. Christ is all four of these. Oh, and since I mentioned the genealogy, why does Luke assign Mary’s family tree to Joseph?
