In Luke there are 42 generations between Jesus and David, who lived about
1000 B.C. This means that 1000/42=24 years for the age of birth of the next
child in the lineage. There are 13 generations between David and Abraham
who lived about 1800 B.C. thus during this period either one must believe
that the average man sired his son at age 61 or that only 1/3 of the people
are listed. There are 20 generations from Abe to Adam, who supposedly lived
4004 BC. A difference of around 2100 years. During this period one must
believe the average siring tookplace at 105 years. There are lots of gaps
in these records, I just believe that there are more than you but we both
MUST believe that there are gaps. Look at Luke 3:36 where a new guy is
inserted into the genalogy who does not appear in Genesis.
