Connecting jesus to the davidic line in the king james bible and the book of matthew
Nathan was the older brother; Solomon was younger, next in line after him see 2 Sam ; 1 Crontherefore he was the first candidate to a levirate marriage compare Ruth ; Lk Augustinefor example, attempted on several occasions to refute every criticism, not only because the Manichaeans in his day were using the differences to attack Christianity,  but also because he himself had seen them in his youth as cause for doubting the veracity of the Gospels.
Hence, the prophetic curse upon Jeconiah stands inviolate. Notice that Luke starts with Mary and goes backwards to Adam.

If we were to think of a theme for this book, we would say its purpose would be to show Jesus as a fulfillment of that promised Messiah His Kingship. Some due to length, have been shorten into "continued" sections. But there is one problem--they are different. God cursed Jeconiah also called Coniah , stating that no descendant of his would ever sit on the throne of David, "For no man of his descendants will prosper sitting on the throne of David or ruling again in Judah," Jer. I find it difficult to accept that those who collected the books of the New Testament, and who believed it was inerrant, were unaware of this blatant differentiation in genealogies. In his book An Exact Exposition of the Orthodox Faith, John Damascene argues that Heli of the tribe of Nathan the son of David died childless, and Jacob of the tribe of Solomon, took his wife and raised up seed to his brother and begat Joseph, in accordance with scripture, namely, yibbum the mitzvah that a man must marry his brother's childless widow ; Joseph, therefore, is by nature the son of Jacob, of the line of Solomon, but by law he is the son of Heli of the line of Nathan. Perhaps this view is attended with fewest difficulties, as it certainly is the best supported. Brown says the genealogies "tell us nothing certain about his grandparents or his great-grand-parents". Matthew He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. Finally, in the Joseph genealogy is a man named Jeconiah.
Matthew He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. Matthew starts with Abraham and goes forward to Joseph.
Why is jesus genealogy traced through joseph
The Old Testament is silent on whether Nathan had children, so we may very well conclude that he had none. But, the legal adoption of Jesus by Joseph reckoned the legal rights of Joseph to Jesus as a son, not the biological curse. But Jesus, of course, will sit on the throne in the heavenly kingdom. Matthew was one of the twelve apostles. So, we can say that Joseph was the son of them both — Eusebius of Cesarea. Thus by both His mother and His earthly father, Jesus had a right to the throne of Israel. When the genealogies arrive at David, they split with David's sons: Nathan Mary's side? It is consistent with the early tradition ascribing a Davidic ancestry to Mary.
The Church Fathers held that both accounts are true. The intents of the genealogies were obviously different which is clearly seen in their styles.
Heli died childless; Jacob raised up his seed by begetting Joseph who was his son according to the flesh, and Heli's son according to the Law. The genealogy in Matthew lists births according to the flesh; the one in Luke is according to the Law.
