  Jeconiah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jeconiah (also known as Jehoiachin, Joachin, and Coniah) was king of Judah.
Jeconiah, with his household, many of the rulers of Judah, and many craftsmen, were taken captive to Babylon.
Cuneiform records dated to 592 BC mention Jeconiah ("Ia-'-ú-kinu") and his five sons as recipients of food rations in Babylon.

According to Matthew 1:11-12, Jesus was a descendant of King Jeconiah and therefore was ineligible to be the messiah because of this curse.
Due to the prophet's curse, however, Jeconiah's son Shealtiel was ineligible to reign as king and the kingship was given instead to Zedekiah, Jeconiah's uncle.
In spite of Jeconiah's desire to be with her, he resisted committing this grave sin of having sexual relations with a menstruous woman.

 Did Jeremiah Err Regarding Jeconiah? : Christian Courier
Second, the passage says that Jeconiah was to be ‘childless.’ But 1 Chronicles 3:17 indicates that he had several sons.
Jeconiah was the 19th king of the southern kingdom of Judah, and the next-to-last in that line.
The declaration that Jeconiah was to be “childless” must be viewed in the larger context of the biblical data regarding him.

Matthew states that Shealtiel was Jeconiah's (also called Jehoiachin) son (Matthew 1:12), whereas Luke states that he was the son of Neri (Luke 3:27).
Therefore, Jeconiah most probably adopted Shealtiel (who was a direct descendent of David, through Nathan) as a son to continue on the royal line.
This would be a problem if Shealtiel was a son of Jeconiah, because Christ was a direct descendant of Shealtiel and He is destined to reign of David's throne forever, fulfilling the promise God made to David.

 Genealogy of Jesus Christ according to Matthew
The names of David and Jeconiah are repeated in the genealogy.
Jeconiah's name may have been repeated because of a transcription error.
Given the fact that some ancient manuscripts contain both names, it is not unreasonable to admit that a transcriber may have overlooked the different spellings, and repeated Jeconiah's name.

 HaDavar Online: Anti-Missionary Arguments
The progenitors are Jeconiah in Matthew and Neri in Luke.
The anti-missionary too has to solve the problem of the Jeconiah curse when he insists that Jewish tradition states the Messiah must be a descendent of David through Solomon.
Jeconiah, the 19th king, was one of the worst.

 Bible Commentary: Matt. 1:1-17; Luke 3:23b-38 - Jesus' Genealogy
Jeconiah (Jehoiachin) later was the royal representative of that line of descent for which eternal perpetuity had been promised.
First, notice that Jeremiah's account neither indicates Jeconiah would have no seed, nor does is say Jeconiah's line has had its legal claim to the throne removed by his sin.
He breaks the pattern and carefully avoids saying that Joseph (a descendant of Jeconiah) begat Instead he refers to "Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus." In the English translation the antecedent of "whom" is ambiguous.

 The Genealogy of Jesus Christ
It wasn’t until 37 years later, after the exile of Judah, that Jeconiah was released from prison (at the age of approximately 55 years) and so would have been able to have some sort of private life again (Jer 52:31, II Kings 24:8).
Even with around 33 years being left until Zerubbabel would return with the exiles to Jerusalem, there’s still enough time for the adoption to have taken place and for the child to have grown up to be ready to lead the band of exiles back in to the land.
In fact, there are numerous scenarios that we could propose that would give either Jeconiah or his family cause to adopt Shealtiel as a family member both before Jeconiah’s release from prison and after, but it’s best that we note the factual possibility of the occurrence and leave it at that.

But Jehoiakim (not Jeconiah) is undeniably the son of Josiah, and Jeconiah is the son of Jehoiakim.
Jeconiah is the father of Shealtiel, and the grandfather of Zerubbabel, etc.
In Jeremiah 22, both kings Jehoiakim and Jeconiah are damned and their descendents forbidden to succeed on the throne of David.

 Chazak! The Curse of Jeconiah
The anti-missionary argument, therefore, is that since Jeconiah is listed in the genealogy of Yeshua, and the curse of Jeconiah excludes ANY of his descendants from ruling on the throne of David, then Yeshua cannot be the Messiah.
This is the "death blow" to the Jeconiah curse argument.
In conclusion, we have seen that A.) the Curse of Jeconiah was lifted, as evidenced in the Tanakh and Judaic literature.

Jeconiah, also called Jehoiachin, was the last king of Judah before that little kingdom was taken into captivity by the Babylonians.
Although no descendant of Jeconiah ever again reigned on the throne of David, Zerubbabel was restored to the favor of God from which Jeconiah had fallen.

Jeconiah, King of Judah, was a wicked king, and his actions pushed G-d too far.
Jeconiah did indeed have children, but those children would be forbidden from sitting on the throne.
G-d used the same term with Zerubbabel, a descendant of Jeconiah, that He used with Jeconiah, a "signet ring." Christians conclude from this that the curse was annulled.

Shallum--No king of this name is mentioned in the history of Josiah's sons (2 Kings 14:1-29, 23:1-37), but there is a notice of Shallum the son of Josiah (Jeremiah 22:11), who reigned in the stead of his father, and who is generally supposed to be Jehoahaz, a younger son, here called the fourth, of Josiah.
Jeconiah was written childless (Jeremiah 22:30), a prediction which (as the words that follow explain) meant that this unfortunate monarch should have no son succeeding him on the throne.

The Curse of Jeconiah and the Virgin Birth
Jeconiah, also known as Jehoiachin or Coniah, was the next to the last king of Judah who reigned before Zedekiah.

 Jamieson, Faussett and Brown Bible Commentary
Jehoiakim is meant here especially: he, by oppression, levied the tribute imposed on him by Pharaoh-necho, king of Egypt (2Ch 36:3), and taxed his people, and took their labor without pay, to build gorgeous palaces for himself (Jer 22:13-17), and shed innocent blood, for example, that of Urijah the prophet (Jer 26:20-24; 2Ki 23:35; 24:4).
Zedekiah (Mattaniah), uncle of Jeconiah, and brother of Jehoiakim and Jehoahaz, was last of all raised to the throne by Nebuchadnezzar.
He calls on Jerusalem, personified as a mourning female, to go up to the highest points visible from Jerusalem, and lament there (see on Jer 3:21) the calamity of herself, bereft of allies and of her princes, who are one after the other being cast down.

As you come to verse 11 it says, "And to Josiah were born Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the deportation to Babylon," and it goes on from there.
Jeconiah was an evil man, also called Coniah, he was an evil man. And in Jeremiah's prophecy chapter 22 and verse 30, the Word of the Lord says this about Jeconiah, "Write this man childless," in what sense?
And yet it was essential that He be in the legal line of Jeconiah, for that was the line of David that had the right to the throne.

According to the genealogy in Matthew 1:12, Yeshua is a descendant of Jeconiah.
Tanhum bar Jeremiah said: Jeconiah was called Asir, "one imprisoned," because he had been in prison ('asurim); and his sons called "Shealtiel" because he was like a sapling, newly set out (hustelah), through whom David's line would be continued.
Tanhuma said: Jeconiah was called Asir, "imprisoned," because God imprisoned Himself by His oath in regard to him; and Jeconiah's son was called Shealtiel, "God consulted," because God consulted the heavenly court, and they released Him from His oath.

 MESSIAH TO DESCEND FROM JEHOIACHIN & ZERUBBABEL-HOW CAN THAT BE?
Events beyond his control were responsible for the prophecies not being fulfilled and both the Jewish people and their scholars as well as Christians need to see both sides of this problem clearly.
Many feel Yeshua is disqualified for such consideration because of the curse on Jeconiah and his lineage.
However, because of a curse in the genealogy of Yeshua, it is presumed that the seed of Jeconiah (which happens to be Yeshua) cannot reign upon David's throne, thus disqualifying Yeshua for any possibility of being Messiah (admittedly not the Messiah the Jewish people were promised).

 Teachings 3
Although Jeconiah's descendants were cursed in that they could not sit on the throne as the king of Israel, clear messianic promises were made to Jeconiah's grandson, Zerubbabel.
Haggai 2:21-23, coupled with the curse of Jeconiah in Jeremiah 22:24-30, leads to the critical conclusion that the Messiah could not have an earthly father, and would therefore have to be born of a virgin.
Since Zerubbabel was Jeconiah's grandson and his seed would also be cursed (1Chronicles 3:17-19) and since the curse of Jeconiah was not lifted or released, (as there is no scriptural support), it would therefore be impossible to qualify a future messiah who would have an earthly father.

Christ could not have been born of Joseph because Joseph was a man and a descendant of Jeconiah, none of whose descendants could inherit the throne of David (Jer.
In this way Christ was apparently a descendant of Jeconiah, who seemed to be in the line of the royal family; actually, He was not a descendant of Jeconiah, Joseph’s forefather, but a descendant of David, Mary’s forefather, so that He could qualify to inherit the throne of David.

 How can Jesus, being the descendant of Jechonias, fulfill the role of the Messiah?
In the New Testament, Jeconiah's significance is the fact that he is an ancestor of Jesus.
And after the deportation to Babylon, to Jeconiah was born Shealtiel; and to Shealtiel, Zerubbabel.
The last part of verse 30 is the "curse." It simply says that none of Jeconiah's sons would sit on his throne as king.

 Why are there two geneologies of Jesus?
Fourth, notice Luke 3:23, "And when He began His ministry, Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age, being supposedly the son of Joseph, the son of Eli," This designation "supposedly" seems to signify the Marian genealogy since it seems to indicate that Jesus is not the biological son of Joseph.
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.
The point is that Jesus is not a biological descendant of Jeconiah, but through the other lineage -- that of Mary.

Finally, some have suggested that Yeshua's right to the throne is null since his line could be traced through Jeconiah, also known as Coniah and Jehoichin.
Jeconiah was cursed by God and his children were not to sit on the throne (Jeremiah 22:24-30).
Jeconiah's sons did not sit on the throne, but his line was restored in Zerubbabel, ancestor of Yeshua through both Matthew's and Luke's genealogies.

The Prophet tells us here, that after Jeconiah the king had been led into exile, the Jews had not on that account repented, though God had as it were forced them to return to him; for it was so severe a chastisement, that to become worse was an evidence of monstrous stupidity.
Jeremiah, however, says that they were not reformed by that punishment; for Zedekiah, who had succeeded Jeconiah, rejected sound doctrine, and did not obey the counsel of the Prophet.
Here the word, Jeconiah, is curtailed, as it is probable, for the sake of degrading him; and we have seen that this has been the common opinion.

 The Genealogy of the Messiah Yeshua
This is significant in Matthews genealogy because of the special curse pronounced on Jeconiah in Jeremiah 22:24-30.
Mary was a member of the house of David but apart from Jeconiah, and since Jesus was Mary's son he too was a member of the house of David, apart from Jeconiah.
In like manner when Jeconiah was cursed there was no one to pass on the line to the throne of David therefore in this case as well the inheritance was passed onto the second son Nathan and on up to Mary the mother of Jesus.

Jehoiachin (Jeconiah or Coniah) was the son of Jehoiakim, and he ruled after Jehoiakim his father was carried away into Babylon.
Matthew simply omits Jehoiakim and his two brothers in favor of Jehoiachin (Jeconiah) probably because he was youngest of these last four kings of Judah.
It appears that Matthew felt it sufficient to make Jeconiah the lone representative of this last group of kings which did evil in the sight of the Lord and were from the same lineage.

Matthew 12-14: After the exile to Babylon (Matthew at least mentions the fact that he was exiled); Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel, Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel, Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, Abiud the father of EliakimÂ….
However, Matthew then shoots himself in the foot by claiming that Joseph was never the father of Jesus, and that Jesus was a descendent of Jeconiah.
We see from this passage in Jeremiah that any descendant of Jeconiah would be disqualified from ever being a Messianic candidate; and therefore, if Christians insist upon making Jesus the legal adopted child of Joseph, then it is obvious that Jesus would be disqualified from even potentially being the messiah.
