Geneology of Messiah

    the Eth Cepher About page reads:

    "Another glaring error is the genealogy set forth in Matthew 1 is that of Miryam (Mary), it is not the genealogy of her husband Joseph! Count the generations: 14, 14, and 14 – except in every English Bible the last set has 13. This error was easily corrected, once we realized that Joseph (Yoceph) was also the name of her father."

    is there a scholarly justification for this assertion? Or, was this knowledge received by revelation?

    The Syriac and Aramaic texts tell us that word "gowra" in the Aramaic text of Matthew 1 means "father". We also have the "math problem" of 14 14 14=42. But if you call Yoceph the "husband" of Miryam in verse 16 of Matthew 1 then we have 14 14 13=41.

    Our research led us to this conclusion. But ultimately the RUACH HA'QODESH led us to the research.
