Jesus is called the Son of David because yes, He definitely came from his lineage. Jesus was the successor to preserve his kingdom. It was a promise God made to David. His kingdom was Jesus’ kingdom, which was ultimately God’s kingdom. 2 Samuel 7:12-13 When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. David was a man after God’s heart (Jesus), and Jesus didn’t even exist yet. No wonder God chose him. He literally was blessed for being so faithful.
