So, YOU asked.
You get what you ask for here Sam.
1st, my friend, Joseph, the Carpenter, is not related to Christ or David for that matter. It is Mary, who's Cousin to Elizabeth, that is the
Bloodline that traces it's lineage to King David. Joseph is Mary's Husband, and seemingly after the fact. (Wink, Wink, Nudge, Nudge).
2nd, my friend, it maybe a surprise to you, but the Old Testament, is basically a Family Tree. From Genesis Chapter 2, and the Creation of the Farmer
(Tiller of the Earth), Adam and his riblet, Eve, through their Son Seth to Mary is the Family Tree of Christ recorded for us all.
It is this Bloodline that Satan, (aka the Devil, The Serpent, The Dragon, and on......) wished to eliminate with his seed (Cain) and Adam's first
son, Abel. GOD protected this bloodline with the intervention of Noah's Flood. GOD Guided this Bloodline through Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael. GOD
brought this Bloodline out of Captivity with Moses. GOD gave this Bloodline a Land of their own.
The Old Testament covers their (That Bloodlines) highlights and failures, but make no mistake, It's all about the Bloodline.
I hope that helps, since you asked
