According to the Bible, the genealogy of mankind was meant to follow a patriarchal system in which all of man are descendants of the first Man named Adam, created from the dust of the Earth. Eve was created from Adam's rib and therefore was considered the weaker vessel by Paul the apostle (see 1 Peter 3:7). Also, throughout the Bible, only the male heirs were named in the genealogies in groups of seven generations. For this reason, the mother of Joseph, husband of Mary, was not at all mentioned in the Holy Bible (even in the original Hebrew/Greek scrolls).
