This genealogy of Jesus Christ is recorded in Mathew Chapter 1. There are three periods of 14 according to Matt.1:17 but the astute reader soon discovers 5 Old Testament names are unexpectedly missing from the second 14 and the third 14 and the third 14 appears to be short one generation. Some names are spelled differently, probably because of the change in language Hebrew to Greek. In Gen.6:9 see how Noah was perfect in his generation. Noah is the tenth generation from Adam. The next ten generation leads to Abraham at No.20. The third last group of ten is up to Ruth which takes us from Pharez to David. David would be at generation No.30, But we would be wrong because of three skipped names namely Issac, Jacob and Judah. So David is at No. 33 and Jesus is at No 66. All the generations from Adam to David is 33 and from David to Jesus 33
