About Aram / Ram .

Ruth 4:19.

I am also sometimes called "Arni".

Luke 3:33 in some manuscripts lists "Admin" as my son and the father of Amminadab, who in this Geni tree and in all other places in Scripture, listed as my son. Admin is listed nowhere else in the Bible, so we do not have another witness to support the inclusion of this name.

Excluding him "is supported by an impressive range of witnesses (A D 33 565 1079 many versions)" admits Bruce Metzger (pg 113 in "A Textual Commentary of the Greek New Testament") and the United Bible Society, who compiled one version of the two popular Greek New Testaments. The witnesses (letters and numbers) he lists are names of manuscripts.

However, Metzger states, "Faced with a bewildering variety of readings, the committee adopted what seems to be the least unsatisfactory form of text, a reading that was current in the Alexandrian church at an early period... that involves three names."

So the UBS's Greek NT reads "tou Aminadab tou Admin tou Arni", even though they admit they are not certain, rating this reading a "C" on a scale of A to D. "Tou" means "of". This decision is based on manuscripts ALEPH, L, 0102, 1243, THETA and others which include names in addition to Ram and Amminadab. The primary reason given by Metzger is that when three names are in place instead of two, "Luke entire genealogy of Jesus falls into an artistically planned pattern, even more elaborate than Matthew's... making a total of... 77 generations from Adam to Jesus."

This artistic pattern may also be achieved however if we include God in the genealogy as #1. But the real point is that we must always stick with the plain facts, rather than forcing things into a perceived pattern.
