Second Chronicles 24:40

This website has been moved to:

2 Chronicles 24:20: Then the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, who stood above the people, and said to them, “Thus says God: ‘Why do you transgress the commandments of the Lord, so that you cannot prosper? Because you have forsaken the Lord, He also has forsaken you.’”

Matthew 23:35: that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar.

Second Chronicles says that Zechariah's father was Jehoiada, but Matthew says that Zechariah's father was Berechiah.

The Hebrew genealogies are sometimes telescoped, where ancestors are listed as fathers, and descendents are listed as children. (the Hebrew word has multiple meanings)
