Detailing the lineage: Joseph, Exodus, Levites to Mary

In 1998 BC, when Joseph was 70 years old, Upper (southern) Egypt conquered Lower (northern) Egypt. Ahmose I, the new pharaoh and probably a teenager, and his mother, Queen Ashotep, decided to enslave Israel (maybe 200 souls at the time) after defeating the Hyksos regime.

Some tribes had as many as thirteen generations before the Exodus. But Yehovah promised Abraham (Gen 15:13-16) that his seed would come out of slavery in the fourth generation. The first generation was Jacob, the second was Levi, the third was Jochebed (Levi’s daughter), and the fourth was Moses, the “deliverer of Israel”, the third child of Jochebed. Amram, the son of Kohath, married Jochebed (his much older paternal aunt), and she gave birth to Moses at the age of 256, in 1678 BC. The birth of Moses was much more miraculous than that of Isaac.

Mary, the mother of Jesus, was the daughter of a man named Joseph, who was of the monarchal line of Judah. Her mother, a Levite, was of the lineage of Moses and Aaron. Mary’s virgin birth made Jesus both of royal (Judean) and priestly (Levite) ancestry. The King James Version of Matthew 1:16 is a mis-translation. Jacob begat Joseph the FATHER of Mary (the thirteenth generation), and Jesus was the fourteenth generation from the carrying away into Babylon. The book of Luke gives the lineage of Joseph, the HUSBAND of Mary, for legal purposes. We know Mary’s mother was a Levite, because scripture tells us that John the Baptist’s mother (Elisabeth) was of the lineage of Aaron (Luke 1:5), and her mother and Mary’s mother were sisters. That’s how Elisabeth became Mary’s older cousin.

The Hebrew roots of Christianity begin to unfold fifteen days before the Exodus. The new day starts at sundown for the Jews because Yehovah assigned the cycle of the Moon to mark the feasts (moadim) of the Lord, given to Israel. Each month begins with the visual sighting of the renewed Moon (first sliver, lower crescent) at sundown. The cycle is 29.53+ days. If there is cloud cover and the renewed Moon can’t be seen, the new month begins by default on the 30th day.

The new year begins with the next renewed Moon after the barley in Israel is ripe enough (aviv) to be roasted for the “first fruits” offering after Passover. If the barley is not aviv yet, a second twelfth month is observed, to give the barley time to ripen. The first month of the year, as determined by Yehovah, is called the “month of the Aviv”. On the tenth day of that month, the “perfect” lamb is chosen, and inspected for four days. On the afternoon of the fourteenth day of the month, the sacrificial lamb is put in the oven, and eaten after sundown. This starts the seven days of eating unleavened bread. The first Sabbath following the end of Passover (1 to 7 days),is the firstfruits offering of barley. Forty-nine days later is the Day of Pentecost. These are the four Spring feasts (moadim) Yehovah required of Israel.

The first day of the seventh month (Tishri) is the Day of Trumpets, commemorating when God first spoke to all of Israel from Mt. Sinai, and gave them “a new tongue”. The tenth day of that month is the Day of Atonement, when the High Priest uses animal sacrifices to sprinkle blood on the East end of the Arc of the Covenant (when it became available) once a year for forgiveness of the sins of the people. The fifteenth through the twenty-first is the moadim of Tabernacles (sukkahs) where grown men build temporary small shelters to live in for one week. The twenty-second day is called “the last great day”. These are the three Autumn feasts (moadim) Yehovah required of Israel.
After 400 years of slavery in Egypt, Israel crossed the Red Sea in 1598 BC, and journeyed to Mt. Sinai in Saudi Arabia. The first day of Pentecost occurred when Yehovah spoke to all of Israel from the top of the mountain (scaring them half to death), and God gave all of Israel a new language…, Hebrew. It was in addition to the Egyptian and Canaanite languages which they previously spoke. That is why no interpreter was needed when the spies “cased out” Jericho.

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).
