the only thing clumsy here is your exegesis.
shame he cant sit on the throne of david like luke thinks.
shame that jesus cant be in a righteous
branch of davids line because god cursed jeconiah and declared his line of descendants as illegitimate.
shame that in jesus' days judah and israel werent in safety.
shame that the torah says any descendant of jeconiah will not sit on davids throne or be a legitimate ruler of judah.
i cant see why u cant see the massive contradictions between matthew luke and jeremiah.
theres a difference between proper exegesis and selective reading. ur in the latter.
