In the Book of Matthew 1:17, it states:
"So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon into Christ are fourteen generations."
What, do you suppose is the significance of that, as milestones through generations? I have not dove very deep into numerology or gematria yet. I am spinning enough plates as is, right now. But perhaps someone else can lend insight who IS spinning that plate in their regular studies. Maybe another board for numerology, etc. would also be a decent place to ask this.
As an aside, this lineage also seems to traced through Joseph, not Mary. Thoughts on that would also be interesting.
Many thanks. God bless & get this place active again!
