Re: Jesus: David sin etterkommar?

I desse adventstider vil eg re-poste eit innlegg eg posta for over fem månadar sidan, 19. juli, om Kristus som Davids sin etterkommar.

_____________

Vi lærer i kristen teologi at Kristus er David sin etterkommar. Men Jesus vart jo fødd av Maria, utan nokon jordleg far, så korleis kan Jesus vere ein etterkommar av David?

Enkelte har “løyst problemet” ved at ein har sagt at ættetavla i Lukas er Maria si, men det er ikkje noko grunnlag for dette. Men fortvil ikkje! Les kva Jimmy Akin har å seie om saka, noko som klarar opp ein del ting (og som kanskje sparkar litt til Richard Dawkins):

It’s true that Jesus was not physically descended from Joseph and thus could not have been physically descended from David via Joseph. However, physical descent is not the only form of descent there is.

There’s also adoptive descent or legal descent.

This occurred in a variety of contexts in ancient Hebrew society. As members of a patriarchical society, everybody in Israel needed to be related to somebody in order to know their place in the world, and this led to a lot of adoptions, including adoptions that were done posthumously–after the death of the person “doing” the adoption.

Ha ein framleis god advent, og ei god jul!
