Prophecy: Royal Line Through David’s Son Solomon

The Line of David through the kings to Joseph in Matthew 1 from my last post The House of David is the fulfillment of prophecy. As previously noted this is the Legal bloodline of Jesus. Jesus is not of the seed of Joseph; yet legally He is of the Royal Bloodline.  This is how God got around the curse on the seed of Jechoniah (also known as Coniah or Jehoiachin) as recorded in Jeremiah 22:30. This line was royal line of David, so if the Messiah was to qualify for the throne of David (Lk 1:31-33), he had to be of the legal line of David, yet not of his seed..Only the Lord could do this!

.

This line also connects Jesus with both the Jews and Gentiles; As it mentions the gentile mothers.

.

This line also connects Jesus to the seed of Abraham.

Genesis 22:18-19 NASB
18 In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” 19 So Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham lived at Beersheba.

Galatians 3:16 NASB
16 Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as referring to many, but rather to one, “And to your seed,” that is, Christ.

Genesis 49:10 NASB
10 “The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes,
And to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.

2 Samuel 7:12-17 NASB
12 When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 I will be a father to him and he will be a son to Me; when he commits iniquity, I will correct him with the rod of men and the strokes of the sons of men, 15 but My lovingkindness shall not depart from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. 16 Your house and your kingdom shall endure before Me forever; your throne shall be established forever.”’” 17 In accordance with all these words and all this vision, so Nathan spoke to David.

1 Chronicles 28:4-5 NASB
4 Yet, the Lord, the God of Israel, chose me from all the house of my father to be king over Israel forever. For He has chosen Judah to be a leader; and in the house of Judah, my father’s house, and among the sons of my father He took pleasure in me to make me king over all Israel. 5 Of all my sons (for the Lord has given me many sons), He has chosen my son Solomon to sit on the throne of the kingdom of the Lord over Israel.

Psalm 132:11 NASB
11 The Lord has sworn to David
A truth from which He will not turn back: “Of the fruit of your body I will set upon your throne.

Luke 1:26-33 NASB
Jesus’ Birth Foretold
26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee called Nazareth, 27 to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And coming in, he said to her, “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you.” 29 But she was very perplexed at this statement, and kept pondering what kind of salutation this was. 30 The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; 33 and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.”

Isaiah 9:6-7 NASB
6 For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
7 There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace,
On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.
