Jesus has no blood lineage with David. It was Joseph who is a direct descendant of David.. Matthew 1:16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. Hebrews traced their descent through the father, never the mother. please see all geneologies in The Bible..

AnswerHow many male grandparents, great grandparents and great-great grandparents do YOU have? Remember that Judaism tracks much of it's lineage through the MOTHER's line. In fact, that's the only way a Jewish person can guarantee that he/she is really Jewish. Why would you assume that BOTH couldn't be right? Two Parents and Two GeneolgiesThis is easily explained. Both are correct. MATTHEW traced Jesus lineage through the LEGAL parent, Joseph, his step-father; thus establishing Jesus' legal right to being the Messiah. This line goes back to Abraham through David's son King Solomon.Note verse 16 ends the line stating: (Matthew 1:16) Jacob became father to Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ.

LUKE'S account traces Jesus back through the line of Mary which goes back through David's son Nathan. This establishes Jesus NATURAL line of descent. Luke 3:23 states (Luke 3:23) 23 Furthermore, Jesus himself, when he commenced [his work], was about thirty years old, being the son, as the opinion was, of Joseph, [son] of He�li,

Heli was apparently Mary's father making Joseph his son-in-law. So Jesus had the geneological credentials of being a son of Abraham, Judah, and David by both legal right through his step-father, Joseph, and by natural descent through Mary.

But"Joseph, which was the son of Heli." Luke says that Joseph's father (Jesus' grandfather) was Heli; Matthew (1:16) says his name was Jacob. Notice that the genealogy of Jesus given here is entirely different than that in Mt.1:6-16. Luke lists 43 generations from David to Jesus, Matthew has only 29, and except for David at one end and Jesus at the other, only three names in the two lists are the same (and they are completely out of order). Of course we are told to ignore boring genealogies like this in 1 Tim.1:4 and Tit.3:19. So why are they in the Bible then? Who was Jesus' grandfather on his father's side?

[N.T.] JOHN 7:42 & ACTS 2:30/ [O.T.] PSALM 132: 11 & JER. 5: Says there is a blood line between David and Jesus, as a fact God promise David that the Christ would be from David loins accorrding to the flesh.

Raymond E. Brown says, in An Introduction to the New Testament, there is little likelihood that either genealogy is strictly historical. He says that God should have inspired the two evangelists to give us the same record, but of course he did not..

Was Jesus descended from Nathan or Solomon?

In Matthew's Gospel, Jesus was a descendant of Solomon, son of David, through the male line from his father Joseph.In Luke's Gospel, Jesus was a descendant of Nathan, also a son of David, through the male line from his father Joseph.Looking carefully at the two different accounts, we can see that Jesus was also the descendant of the great Zorobabel, son of Salathiel, but Matthew says that Zorobabel's grandfather was Jechonias, while Luke says that Zorobabel's grandfather was Neri. In other words, neither author knew. They were both writing Christian midrash.
