The Jewish paternity question

Like this post
Hi team,
I've been looking but can't find in any text where it says that "Jewishness" is inherited from the mother. Is there a term for this, which book?

Is there a rationale? and there are obviously paternal inheritance character in Judaism.., what conflict is there?

Thanks!

TS, I mean scripture or divine word.
I thank you, it is an interesting article - but it's not a Bible verse.

Cordially yours

No, there is no such verse or indication of this teaching in scripture. Ruth's child for example was considered "Jewish" although she herself was not a Jew.

There is no Bible text for that, except maybe Genesis 3:20
"And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living."

The problem with paternity is that some times the mother does not know who is the father, and some times the mother lies and she will point at who ever she chooses and claims that man as the father, and there were instances of rape where the father was not welcome into the family.

So we can not be certain as to who is the father, but the mother we know by at the time of the birth.

I even heard an interesting thing recently that long long ago primitive people really did not know where the babies came from, as people just thought that the females had babies on their own. Primitive people did not know that the action of sex actually produced the baby nine months later. No one really knows when people figured out that cause-and-effect, and it took much longer for other people to accept that story about the creation of babies being a 2 way joint venture.

Even today into the 21st century a lot of that confusion is still true.

It has always appreciated when the baby / child looks like their father.
