The "Jeconiah" Curse

Paqid Yirmeyahu (Paqid 16, the Netzarim)
Pâ•qidꞋ  Yi•rᵊmᵊyâhꞋ u

This curse on , a patrilineal ancestor of Ribi Yᵊho•shua, is found in Yi•rᵊmᵊyâhu 22.30:

"Thus says ‑‑, 'Write this man childless, an adult who shall not succeed in his days; because from his seed a man shall not succeed to sit on the bench of Dâ•wid or ever rule in Yᵊhud•âh."

This curse is why the original Christians (followers of "the Apostle St. Paul" the Apostate) considered that they had no alternative but to insist that their developing idol-version of Yesh"u, which they were syncretizing from their native Hellenist mythology, Zeus (= Deus), had to have been born of a virgin, supernaturally inseminated by the traditional Egyptian and Hellenist mythological doctrine of the mating of a mortal woman with deus (= theos = god), instead of by Yo•seiph – who descended through .

King , or , both diminutives of , was later Hellenized to:

  1. Ιωακιμ (confused by Hellenists with his father, King ; e.g., LXX Ἱερεμίας 52.31) and,

  2. primarily, Ιεχονιας (LXX Παραλειπομένων Β' 36.8,9

then Anglicized to "Coniah", "Jeconiah" and "Jehoiachin".

Ta•lᵊmud: Tᵊshuv•âh Produced Ki•pur, Averting The Curse

Ta•lᵊmud records (Ma•sëkët Συνέδριον 37b-38a) that , aka — namely, — made tᵊshuv•âh, thereby obtaining ki•pur, removing the curse from his Davidic line.

According to Ta•lᵊmud (Ma•sëkët Git•in 88a), the Beit Din -Jâ•dol, fearing that Beit-Dâ•wid might cease since the king was childless, succeeded in obtaining permission for his wife to live with him. returned tᵊshuv•âh, keeping the mi•tzᵊw•ot of marital purity during this time, as a result of which Tor•âh documents that he received ki•pur and the curse was thereby averted (Yi•rᵊmᵊyâhu 3.22 with Lev. R. 19.6). Yon•âh's prophecy to Ni•nᵊveih was later rescinded. Even the decree that none of his seed would sit on the seat of Dâ•wid was repealed when his descendant, Zᵊru-Bâ•vël, was appointed leader of the returned exiles (documented proven in Ëzᵊr•â 3.2; Khaj•ai ha-Nâ•vi 2.23 and Zᵊkhar•yâh chapters 3-4 (see also Ma•sëkët Συνέδριον 37b-38a). The exile of Tzi•dᵊq•i•yâh while was still alive was a merciful act, since it gave the opportunity to teach him Tor•âh. (See also "Jehoiachin," Encyclopedia Judaica, 9.1318-19).

Patrilineal Descent

Tribal heritage is defined exclusively by patrilineal descent based on bᵊ-Mi•dᵊbar 1.18 ("by their fathers' houses").

The patrilineal descent of Ribi Yᵊho•shua, taken directly from the yo•khas•in, is preserved in NHM whose earliest extant source mss. date back to the 2nd-4th centuries C.E., from which time its authenticity was unchallenged.

Matrilineal Descent

Tor•âh = Judaic identity passes exclusively through the mother, based on Ëzᵊr•â 10.2-3 (offspring of non-Tor•âh = non-Judaic, wives cast out too). The matrilineal descent of Ribi Yᵊho•shua is preserved in NHM. whose earliest extant source mss. date back to the 2nd-4th centuries C.E., from which time its authenticity was unchallenged.

Only 2 Surviving Davidic Genealogies From Ancient Yo•khas•in

Genealogies, Once Corrupted, Forever Invalidated (Ma•sëkët Qi•dush•in 70b)
Therefore, the Only Possible Messiah Candidate – Ever!!!

These two copies from the yo•khas•in are the only genealogies to survive Herod's destruction of the Davidic genealogies (documented by Africanus), thus remaining the sole extant legitimate genealogies of Dâ•wid ha-Mëlëkh, quoted from the public yo•khas•in accepted by the Beit Din -Jâ•dol. Any lesser authority was unacceptable; e.g. the yo•khas•in was proof for taxation, military service, to qualify for marriage, for legitimate Ko•hein genealogy (Nᵊkhëm•yâh 7.63; without which claimants were summarily disqualified, even from the Diaspora, cf. Jos., Apion, 1.7) and certainly the Mâ•shiakh can be no exception. Further, the Sages ruled that such a disconnection is irreparably permanent forever, according to the rule that "a family once mixed up remains so" (Ma•sëkët Qi•dush•in 70b).

This copy of the relevant section of the yo•khas•in proved, to the satisfaction of the Beit Din -Jâ•dol (else it would have immediately repudiated and initiated legal action), that Ribi Yᵊho•shua was of the tribe of Yᵊhud•âh and the lineage of Dâ•wid ha-Mëlëkh through Shᵊlomoh ha-Mëlëkh, according to Shᵊmu•eil Beit 7.12-16. The early sections of NHM are corroborated by Di•vᵊr•ei-ha-Yâm•im Âlëph 3.11-12, 15, 16-17); Di•vᵊr•ei-ha-Yâm•im Beit 17.11-14; 22.9-10; 28.6-7 and Tᵊhil•im 89.20-38.

Significantly, because these two genealogies are the only surviving scientifically and archeologically credible extracts from the first century yo•khas•in of Beit-Dâ•wid, to reject these only two extant legitimate genealogies makes any Mâ•shiakh-candidate after 135 C.E. a complete impossibility – like most Jews today, ignorantly placing one's belief in a guaranteed never-to-come Mâ•shiakh.
