God is missing in Biblical People's rendition of Luke's family tree of Jesus. (Luk 3:38)

I can't determine if this is because you don't want to make an image of God (ok, I can live with that) or because of an oversight.  Frankly I'd rather there be just the word God there - and no image.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

It's not really theological, but simply a design decision to focus on humans in the People Diagrams. You shouldn't think of these as faithful graphic representations of the text: they often combine texts or bring in other information. They're really just intended to visually summarize information, and make it easy to get to related people.

Which is intriguing because I have diagrams that include Baal, zeus, hermes, etc.  :)

But I appreciate your point.  Thanks Sean. 

@Abi exactly.
