Matthew 1:11

11 And 1Josiah begot 2aJeconiah and his 3brothers at the time of the 4bdeportation to Babylon.


111 The genealogy here records that "Josiah begot Jeconiah." However, 1 Chron. 3:15-16 says, "The sons of Josiah ... the second Jehoiakim ... and the sons of Jehoiakim: Jeconiah his son." One generation — Jehoiakim — was omitted from the genealogy of Christ. This must have been because he was made king by Pharaoh of Egypt and collected taxes for Pharaoh (2 Kings 23:34-35).
