The Son of God, NOT the Son of Joseph

When listing the ancestry of Jesus (which should only be one: God), Matthew compromises 28 generations and Luke lists 43. Only David, Joseph, Salathiel and Zorobabel appear in both lists. Jesus is simply not an ancestor of David as Joseph’s seed had nothing to do with his creation. Therefore, Jesus could not be the Messiah. AND YET, Jesus states in Rev. 22:16 “I am the root and the offspring of David.”

  1. Umm… if you reread your bible, you will see that His mother Mary, was of the lineage of David.

    And I repeat———

    I grow so tired of this revisionist argument. The Jesus — Mary – David connection was never used until the Jesus — Joseph – David one was shown to be invalid. The fact that Mary had a link back to David (and was therefore kin to her husband – eck!-) is not the point, as whenever a connection is made from Jesus back to David in order to legitimize him as the Messiah, it is made illegitimately through the Joseph–David connection.
