Genealogies

Timothy2:23  Further, reject foolish and ignorant debates,+ knowing that they produce fights. 24  For a slave of the Lord does not need to fight, but needs to be gentle* toward all,+ qualified to teach, showing restraint when wronged,+ 25  instructing with mildness those not favorably disposed.+ Perhaps God may give them repentance* leading to an accurate knowledge of truth,+26  and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the Devil, seeing that they have been caught alive by him to do his will.+

1 Timothy 4:7  But reject irreverent false stories, like those told by old women. On the other hand, train yourself with godly devotion as your aim.

Titus 3:9  But have nothing to do with foolish arguments and genealogies and disputes and fights over the Law, for they are unprofitable and futile.

1 Timothy 1:3, 4  Just as I encouraged you to stay in Ephʹe·sus when I was about to go to Mac·e·doʹni·a, so I do now, in order for you to command certain ones not to teach different doctrine,  nor to pay attention to false stories and to genealogies. Such things end up in nothing useful but merely give rise to speculations rather than providing anything from God in connection with faith.
