Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of YHWH  Tzva'ot will perform this.
The Prophecy at YeshaYahu 9:7 (6)

He shall be Great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and YHWH ELOHIM shall give unto him the throne of his father David: Loukas 1:33 And he shall reign over the Beit Yaakov (יעקב) forever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end.
The fullfilment in Loukas 1:32-33

But thou, Beit-Lechem Efrata (אפרתה), [though] thou be little among the thousands of Yehudah, [yet] out of thee shall he come forth unto me [that is] to be ruler in Yisrael; whose goings forth [have been] from of old, from everlasting.

Yeshua was born in the natural Royal family

I understand those who opposed to good news of Yeshua resisted and acted ignorantly in unbelief.  Rav Shaul was just like you against the Messianic believers, he confessed that......." I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor. Yet I was shown mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief;" Timotheos Alef 1:13 Your unbelief has keep you out from knowing your Messiah. Pray and ask the Almighy to show you His revelation of about HIMSELF and who is the Messiah not depending on tradition teaching.

Loukas 3:36 the name: "son of Cainan" is not found in the Masoretic text of Tenakh (OT) but it is found in the Septuagint

Of interest too is the mention of a king named Yekonyah. In Yirmeyahu 22:30 The Almighty pronounced a curse on this man:

Thus says YHWH Elohim: “Write this man down as childless, A man who shall not prosper in his days; For none of his descendants shall prosper, Sitting on the throne of David, And ruling anymore in Yehudah.”

There some who view that the Mashiach must come from the father.

Can the Moshiach  be the arise one who has a legitimate claim to the throne that is through the descendant of Shlomo; yet not be a descendant of Yekonyah?

Please think carefully that if the Mashiach had been the real son of Yosef, He would have come under this CURSE. Yet He had to be the legal son of Yosef in order to inherit the rights to the throne of David. The problem was solved by the miracle of the virgin birth: Yeshua was the legal heir to the throne through Yosef. He was the real Son of David through Miryam. The curse on Yekonyah (Yekhanyahu) did not fall on Miryam (seed of the woman) or her children since she did not descend from Yekonyah.

Mattiyahu proclaims that Yeshua as a descendant of Shlomo (1:6-7) and also includes Y'hoyachin (verses 11-12) in his genealogy while Loukas did not stress on issue of Miriyam virgin birth but Yeshua's lineage through Nathan instead of Shlomo to  point out that the seed of Moshiach is undefiled.

While we learn from Chagai 2:23 about Zeruv-bavel that the Almighty make him a signet (khotam, חותם ) ring" here implies that the curse was lifted which indicates that divine authority to rule is committed to the Mashiach Yeshua His earthly mother Miryam who married to Yosef thus Yeshua was adopted into the legal Royal family . Praise YAH for His All-Knowing.

There is the two comparison, four goyim (gentile women) being listed in the genealogy of Yeshua in contrast with four Jewish kings name not included in the Messianic line for evil deeds. see the chart of Melekhim Yehudah if you use firefox you see the four kings name blinking "not listed Messianic line.

To those who cross reference with the Tenakh notice there are four kings name were not listed in Messianic line in Mattityahu 1:17 The names are as follows some how related the consequence of the deeds of Yoram ---> read the extract of John Lightfoot A Commentary on the New Testament from the Talmud and Hebraica

Ahaziyah (had wicked mother) cut off  ,

Yoash not written in Chronicles 2 Kings 12:19,

Amatzyah also not written in the kings of Yehudah and

Yehoyakin not written (2 Kings 24:5).

The Shliach (the Sent Ones) tell us The phrase being "not written" was great loss for these kings as you examine closely their lives who did evil, they have reap what they sown. Although they are list in toldot Shlomo but resulted not having the priviledge to be in the Messianic line. See the chart The Chart of Melekhim Yehudah.  Just as Reuven although was physical firstborn but was forfittd due to his evil deed loses his birthright. Thus we can see the 14th generation supposedly to be 18th generation in toldot Shlomo.

Almah Naara (naarot-Pl) betulah (virgin) - In the Tenakh These four similar words are use meaning maiden,damsel, girl, young woman, young marriageable woman, virgin, a woman who does not have sexual relationship with man. These four words are also use in the same chapter Beresheet 24

How do we know Miryam is a virgin?

Loukas 1:34 And Miryam said to the Messenger: "How shall this be, since I do not know a man?"

Beresheet 24:43 behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass that when the maiden comes out to draw water, and I say to her, "Please give me a little water from your pitcher to drink,"
The word "maiden" is the same Hebrew word "almah" meaning a unmarried young woman who does not have sexual relationship with man.


parthénos; gen. parthénou, masc.-fem., adj. In the NT:

(I) In the fem. as a subst., hē parthénos means a virgin, maiden.


If you have read Yeshayahu 11:1 read on

Yeshayahu 11:2 And the Ruach YHWH (יהוה) shall rest upon Him, the spirit of chokmah (wisdom) and Binah (understanding), the spirit of etsah (counsel) and gevurah (strength), the spirit of daat (knowledge) and of the yirah (fear) of YHWH (יהוה);

Luke3:22 And the Ruach HaKodesh descended in a bodily shape like a yonah (dove) upon Him, and a Voice came from shamayim, which said:

"Atah Beni Ahuvi Asher Becha Chafatsti"

"Thou art My Beloved Son; in Thee I AM well pleased."

Sarai Means Princess she was remame to Sarah (noble women) a mother of the Jews people wife of Avraham. YHWH fulfilled His promise to Sarah, and at the appointed time shegave birth to Yitzchak (יצחק). Sarah laughed ???? when the angels told Avraham that he was going to have a son. It was a miracle that YHWH has performed since both Sarah and Avraham were too way advanced in years


means a palm tee. The wife of Er , Yehudah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of YHWH; and YHWH slew him.(Gen 36:7)and Yehudah asked his son Onan to take his brother's wife (Tamar) and raise up seed to his brother but he refused by spilling the seed which YHWH was displeased and slew him. The sudden death of his two sons so soon after their marriage with Tamar made Yehudah hesitate to give her the third also, thinking, very likely, superstition (Tobit2:7ff), that either she herself or marriage with her had been the cause of their deaths. He therefore sent her to her father, with the promise that he would give her his youngest son as soon as he was grown up, though he never intended to do so. Desirous of retaining the family inheritance and name through children, Tamar waited until satisfied that Shelah was not to be given to her as a husband and then determined become a widower. She ensnared him by pretending to be a prostitute consecrated to the impure rites of Kenaanite worship. He gave her pledges, which she produced some three months later, when she was accused of unchastity and sentenced to death by Judah. He acknowledge his own guilt and the provocation he had furneished her to do wrong. Tamar's life was spared and she became the mother of the twins Peretz and Zerach about 1925 bC Gen 38:6-38

Bat-Sheva Bat Eli'am

Commited adultery with King David and became pregnant. David had Bat-Sheva's husband killed in battle, so that He could marry her. The baby died in infancy. Later Bat-Sheva gave birth to Shlomo, the son who inherited the throne. The Almighty is righteous, he does not allow sin in presence therefore He pronounce judgment by acquire the death of the 1st baby born of David. You notice that in the Brit Hadashah credit was given to Uriyah instead of David and also in Jewish custom one could not mention the name of a woman, but wished to trace her line, He would use the name of her husband.
