who were Jesus’ ancestors? (Lamoureux on genealogies, part 2)

Today we continue with part 2 of a 6-part audio-slide series by Denis Lamoureux on biblical genealogies.

Jesus’ genealogy is found in Matthew 1 and Luke 3, and they are significantly–and I think it is fair to say, irreconcilably–different. They differ, however, as Lamoureux tells us, because as ancient genealogies, they serve a primarily theological function, rather than being an accurate record of ancestry.

The audio-slide can be accessed here, and an accompanying handout is here.

Lamoureux holds three earned doctoral degrees (dentistry, theology, and biology) and is associate professor of science and religion at St. Joseph’s College in the University of Alberta (full bio here). He is the author of I Love Jesus & I Accept Evolution (see first of the audio slide series on this book here) which is a great introduction to his view of origins called “evolutionary creation.”
