In Matthew 1.11 the genealogy of Jesus ends at the Babylonian exile (ἐπὶ τῆς μετοικεσίας Βαβυλῶνος). In v. 12 it seems to resume after the exile (Μετὰ δὲ τὴν μετοικεσίαν Βαβυλῶνος). I know that it has been postulated that Matthew frames his genealogy in three sets of fourteen generations because the numerology of dalet-vav-dalet (for David) equals fourteen when added together and it is proposed that Matthew wanted his audience to recognize the symbolism (of course, this encounters the hurdle of the gospel being written in Greek, not Hebrew).

Did the three sets necessitate the ignoring of the generation in Babylon? Why ignore them or do you think it could still be interpreted as including them?
