NT Pod 9: Jesus' Genealogy in Luke's Gospel
For those who are not subscribed to the NT Pod, I will continue to mention it here when I remember. The latest episode, uploaded earlier, is on Luke's Genealogy (Luke 3:23-38). In it I develop the suggestion that Luke takes his genealogy of Jesus through Nathan (Luke 3:31) rather than Solomon (Matthew 1:6) because he is developing an idea drawn the famous messianic passage Isaiah 11:1, which speaks of the "shoot coming from the stump of Jesse". I don't think I have any substantial programme notes to add this time, but it is possible that I might follow up the podcast with some notes here in due course.
