What does Luke 3:28 mean?

As Luke traces Jesus' genealogy back to Adam, he includes several names that repeat. As in the modern day, some names are more popular than others—especially when associated with famous figures. As with prior mentions of names like Levi and Joseph, the name Er as used here is not a reference to Judah's son (Genesis 38:7).

The name Melchi was seen early in this genealogy, possibly being named for the man mentioned in this verse (Luke 3:24).
