Try to design a genealogy, of actual people, with the follow parameters:

- The number of words in it must be divisible by 7 evenly.
- The number of letters must also be divisible by 7 evenly.
- The number of vowels and the number of consonants must also be divisible by 7 evenly.
- The number of words that begin with a vowel must be divisible by 7 evenly.
- The number of words that begin with a consonant must be divisible by 7 evenly.
- The number of words that occur more than once must be divisible by 7 evenly.
- The number of words that occur in more than one form must be divisible by 7 evenly.
- The number of words that occur in only one form must be divisible by 7 evenly.
- The number of nouns must be divisible by 7 evenly.
- Only 7 words shall NOT be nouns
- The number of names in the genealogy must be divisible by 7 evenly.
- Only 7 other kinds of nouns shall be permitted.
- The number of male names must be divisible by 7 evenly.
- The number of generations shall be 21, also divisible by 7 evenly.

This is the genealogy of **Jesus Christ** in Greek found in the Book of Matthew.

This is a hard riddle. Designing a genealogy with all those parameters is tough.

Any helpful hints on where to start?

In a bible study I went to we tried but to no avail.

That is why it is so profound.
