If someone told you that I am Yash, the son of Fred, the son of John, and someone else told you that I am Yash, the son of Fred, the son of Bill. What would you think?

You would think that at least one of these two people were lying! (and you would be right!)

In the Christian scriptures, the author of Matthew says that Jesus is the son of Joseph, the son of Jacob (Matthew 1:16). The author of Luke says that he is Jesus, the son of Joseph, the son of Heli (Luke 3:23).

My question for Christian missionaries: Who is lying? Luke or Matthew or both?
