Son of….?

“The sons of Jeconiah, the prisoner, were Shealtiel his son, and Malchiram, Pedaiah, Shenazzar, Jekamiah, Hoshama and Nedabiah.  The sons of Pedaiah were Zerubbabel…”   1 Chronicles 3:17-19

“Then Jeshua the son of Jozadak and his brothers the priests, and Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel…”  Ezra 3:2

Which was it?  Pedaiah or Shealtiel?

“Now these are the priests and the Levites who came up with Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel,”. Nehemiah 12:1

“Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Jehozadak,”. Haggai 1:12

“After the deportation to Babylon: Jeconiah became the father of Shealtiel, and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel.”. Matthew 1:12

Most scriptures have Shealtiel as Zerubbabel’s father, but this shows that the scriptures are not 100% accurate.  However, they are accurate enough that we can have confidence.  The fact that we can check scripture against scripture increases our confidence.
