  1. It’s possible that Mary’s genealogy also linked to King David. But as far as the link on Joseph’s side, understanding Jewish genealogy and whether or not: Jesus, as the son of Joseph’s wife, links him to Joseph’s ancestry line.

    Consider if you adopted a child, would you still call them son or daughter? Because there is no biological link, would you exclude your adopted child from being included in your family tree?

    • point taken however Romans 1:3 concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh.

      • Romans 1:3 is still referring to the “seed of David” which essentially as a descendant of the line of David, namely the line of God’s promise made to David.

        This again does not refer to a necessary biological connection you seem to be questioning.
