1Sahil Badruddin = ""Jesus’s lineage from King David is stated over and over again, not just throughout the gospels but also in the letters of Paul, in which
Jesus is repeatedly described as “of the seed of David” (Romans 1:3–4; 2 Timothy 2:8). Whether it was true is impossible to say. Many
people claimed lineage to the greatest Israelite king (who lived a thousand years before Jesus of Nazareth), and frankly none of them could
either prove such lineage or disprove it. But obviously the link between Jesus and David was vital for the early Christian community
because it helped prove that this lowly peasant was in fact the messiah."-Zealot, Reza Aslan "
