In the Bible: Women Mentioned in Jesus’ Genealogy

This is a new series (1-11) of Verse No. in the Bible versus the Quran.

In verse No. 11 in the Old Testament, God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.

Verse No. 11 in the New Testament says that, and Josiah the father of Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the exile to Babylon..

Verse No. 11 in the Noble Quran says: who believe in that which has been sent down to you (prophet Muhammad) and what has been sent down before you (to prophets Jesus and Moses) and firmly believe in the everlasting life.

The verse No. 11 in the Old Testament is Genesis 1:11

The verse continues talking about the creation of the heavens and the earth, it says: Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.

The verse No. 11 in the New Testament is Matthew 1:11

The verse continues talking about the Genealogy of Jesus Christ, and Matthew lists Jesus’ ancestors, the verse says: and Josiah the father of Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the exile to Babylon.

Here again, we have the intricacy in writing the names of the persons in the different four versions of the Bible studied.

Fundamentally, the names of the people have no translation, they have to be written as they are pronounced.

How come that a person’s name in one version of the Bible is Jeconiah and in another version of the Bible he is Jechoniah  and in a third version of the Bible, he is Jechonias?

Also, it is noteworthy the Babylon is written as it is pronounced in the four versions studied.

On the other hand, the Bible mentioned many names of Jesus’ ancestors without saying “and his brothers” e.g. Abraham Isaac, Jacob, Perez, Hezron, Ram etc. But when it came to  Judah, the Bible says “Judah and his brothers”. Is Judah a unique among Jesus’ ancestors?  The same is true with Jechoniah (or Jeconiah  or Jechonias), is he distinctive?

Furthermore, it should be emphasized that some women are mentioned in Jesus’ genealogy as wives of Jesus’ ancestors. They are Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, and the wife of Uriah.

Nevertheless, Tamar and the wife of Uriah have committed adultery, Tamar was willing to do it and the wife of Uriah was abused by King David as the Bible claim!

However, None of the Muslims believes in that story about King David!.

Verse No. 11 in the Noble Quran is Chapter 2:1, Surah Surah AL-BAQARA (THE COW), 2:4

In the previous article (10), verse 2:3, determines who are the believers, it says:

Those who believe in the unseen, that which is hidden from them such as the Angels, Paradise, hell, the Bridge over hell, the Scale, the Resurrection, the Reckoning, the Eternal Fire etc. It is also said that this means: that they believe in the unseen which is revealed in the Quran and also in that which is not revealed therein.

It is also said that the unseen is Allah Himself.

And establish worship, they perform to completion the five prescribed prayers, including the ablution that precedes them, the bowing and prostrations which are parts of them and also what is obligated in these prayers in terms of appointed timing.

And spend of that Allah has bestowed upon them, and of that which Allah has given them of wealth they give to charity. It is also said that this means: they give the poor-due from their wealth.

Verse 2:4, continues the determination of who are the believers, it says:

And those who believe in:

1)      that which is revealed unto thee (Muhammad) of the Quran and

2)      that which was revealed before you of scriptures i.e.  in the Torah, the Gospel and other scriptures given to all the prophets,  and

3)      the Hereafter, they believe in resurrection after death and are certain of the bliss of Paradise; they know it is real.

It follows that Muslims believe in the Quran, Torah and Gospel in addition to the scriptures given to all the prophets e.g. Abraham, David etc.
