The first chapter of Matthew, also the first chapter of the New Testament traces the genealogy of Jesus all the way back to Abraham and the other gospel author Luke takes Jesus’s lineage even further to the first created human by God – the first man Adam. In the data visualization below, I have attempted to correlate these two New Testament chapters with the genealogy presented in various Old Testament books – Genesis, Ruth, 1 Chronicles, 1 Kings and 2 Kings. As always, any errors or omissions are all mine!
