    The Genealogy of Jesus Christ questioned?

    Ever wondered how these two verses are reconciled:

    Luke 3:23
    Now Jesus himself was about thirty years old when he began his ministry. He was the son, so it was thought, of Joseph, the son of Heli,

    Matthew 1:16
    And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

    How can Heli's son be Joseph if Jacob begat Joseph?
