Ask The Rabbi - 2/5/2019

In the Bible, genealogies are stated mostly in terms of fathers and sons, yet in speaking to contemporary Jews I am told that the determination of whether one is a Jew or not depends upon the mother’s lineage and faith. Is that the Biblical standard or was that changed over time?
