Bloodline of David??
Untill church wednesday ( yes I go to chruch, yes I am an atheist. They consider me a blessing to show how the power of god can convert, I see them as the way to acheive my goal of deconverting someone.) I had always thought that Jesus (had he existed as says the bible) was not a blood decendant of David because it was Joseph that was his decendant, ergo the whole virgin birth would not give Jesus that bloodline. The youth leader responded when I confronted her with this by saying Mary was also a descendant of David. I was not prepared to counter that so I backed off. My question is, according to the bible, was Mary a descendant of David?? I really hate wading through biblical geneologies.
