Is the Messiah the Son of David? (Part 1)

Part 1 on how can the Messiah can be the Son of David when ancestry was determined only by the father’s lineage and Jesus had no earthly father.


2000 years ago Jews in the Galilee, in Judea, and outside of Eretz Israel, the Land of Israel, were fully convinced that Yeshua (Jesus), the inspiring rabbi-teacher and the miracles performer, was the son of a man called Joseph (Luke 3:23), “of the house of David” (Luke 1:27; 2:4). Many believed that his mother was Miriam from Nazareth (John 6:42).

At the very beginning of Matthew’s Gospel in the New Testament (NT), the apostle wrote about Messiah Yeshua’s family-tree as follows: “This is the genealogy of Yeshua the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham” (Matt 1:1).

As a matter of principle, according to biblical narration all parentage lists refer only to the ancestry’s fathers, neglecting to mention the mothers’ names.
