From John the Baptist to Jesus Christ

As of this writing, Michael Rood has not yet discovered true salvation, but has still been a tool used by God. I also thank Yehovah, who guided Mr. Rood and helped him to complete that 40 year task. I urge all to purchase a copy, to enrich your understanding of the feasts and how they played a major part in the life of Yeshua.

The fifteenth day of the 3rd month (Sivan) was the pagan date of June 10, of the year 4 BC.

This is near the day that Zacharias would conclude his order of service in the Temple, ending with the burning of incense.  It is on this day that the arc-angel (probably Gabriel) announced to Zacharias that he would have a son.

Zacharias and his wife Elisabeth were close their mid-seventies, and were childless. Because he was doubting that this could come about, Zacharias was struck deaf and dumb until this child was born.  About three days later, when his interval of service was over, Zacharias left the Temple and returned to his home, which appears to be near Bethlehem.

In July, the next month, Elisabeth conceives, and hides herself for five months.

Meanwhile, Mary is the younger first cousin of Elisabeth.  Their mothers were sisters, being maybe twelve years apart, and of the linage of Moses and Aaron.

However, Mary’s father was of the kingly line of David and Solomon.  His name was also Joseph.  Matthew 1:16 (KJV) mistakenly names Joseph “the husband of Mary”, which the translators got wrong.  Joseph, the “father” of Mary, was the twelfth generation from Babylon, Mary was the thirteenth, and Yeshua was the fourteenth generation.  Joseph, who was the “husband” of Mary, was of the linage of King David and his son Nathan.  Two different men named Joseph.

The narrative in Matthew counts fourteen generations from Abraham to David, and fourteen from David to Babylon. So far, there are fourteen names each time. But when you count the names from Babylon to Jesus, there are only thirteen names. Yet the author says “fourteen”.

It’s not that the author can’t count, it’s because the translators didn’t know the meaning of the word that was used for “master of the house”.

Since the name attached to it was “Joseph”, they assumed that it was referring to Mary’s husband, who was no kin to Jesus, and not of the lineage of Solomon. But the “master of the house” was Mary’s father, being the 12th generation, Mary his daughter being the 13th, and Jesus being the 14th generation.

In the next chapter, the Spirit of Yehovah goes to work.

About the Author

- Herman Cummings is a computer data analyst, who used his training to analyze the written text of Genesis. On EasterSunday, in 1990, a lady stood up in Sunday School and asked the pastor “How can I teach my children about Adam & Eve, when all they are taught is evolution in school?”. The pastor could only say “Just believe the Bible”. That was of no help to the lady. So Herman Cummings began his research to resolve the issue, since the worlds of Creationism and Theology could not literally reconcile Genesis with scientific reality. After receiving the revelation of the first chapter from the Lord in December 1993, Herman Cummings became the world’s leading expert on the book of Genesis (Bereshit).
