In contrast to Matthew, Luke's account of the biblical genealogies leading to Jesus Christ includes a generation not found in the Genesis account (Cainan). For this reason, we know that neither the Old Testament nor New Testament genealogies represent a complete record of all human generations.
A more complete listing of gaps in the genealogical records can be found at Are There Gaps in the Biblical Genealogies? by William Henry Green, "Primeval Chronology” Bibliotheca Sacra (April, 1890), 285-303.
