One more reason I prefer Christ


Buddha was born a prince and raised in wealth. Mohammed was born into a family of mid-level merchants and married the richest woman in town. Brahma was a demigod who drove his consort insane. Jesus lineage is somewhat more colorful.

Genesis 25:19-34 (Matthew 1:1-2)
Genesis 38:12-30 (Matthew 1:3)
Joshua 2:1-24 (Matthew 1:5)
Ruth (Matthew 1:5)
2 Samuel 11-12 & Psalm 51 (Matthew 1:6)
1 Kings 11-12 (Matthew 1:7)
1 Kings 14:21-15:24 (Matthew 1:7-8)
2 Kings 21 (Matthew 1:10)
2 Kings 22:1-23:30 (Matthew 1:11)

And I bet you thought Matthew 1:1-11 was dry and boring.
