I understand your point, from the legal perspectiveEastern Mind said:My point was, he was not biologically the Son of David, because he was not Joseph's descendant. Joseph was descendant of King David. By law, He (Christ) was; but biologically, He was not. The Theotokos was not a descendant of King David.freddief said:The Lord Jesus was indeed a son of David in that he was a descendant of David. He was not a descendant of JosephEastern Mind said:Jesus is called the Son of David, even though Joseph was not his father. So is Jesus really the Son of David?freddief said:look, if they did not have the same father (they didn't) and if they did not have the same mother (they didn't), then how could they be half-siblings?biro said:The Orthodox believe that He did.freddief said:but any children Joseph had by a previous marriage would not have been the Lord's half-siblings, unless Joseph himself sired the Lord. the Lord Jesus had no half-siblingsbiro said:Oh boy, here we go.
Someone please explain to him about St. Joseph's previous marriage, and what half-siblings are?
Obviously you have no idea what you're talking about. This is probably the first time you even heard about that, and I'll bet you didn't even do any research on what the Orthodox think about it, before coming to an Orthodox board. You just came to spam people.
The point being; by law, Christ had half-siblings, even if it was not biologically so.
