      Lk 1:27 cites Joseph, Mary's spouse from the House of

      Lk 1:32 Jesus is to have the throne of his father

      Lk 1:69 is as Leonard suggests

      Lk 2:4 Jesus is born in the city of David since he is
      of that line

      Lk 2:11 restates 2:4 in an iconic manner

      Lk 3:31 shows David descent

      Lk 18:38,39 even a blind man recognizes Jesus as Son
      of David

      Lk 20:41-44 redirects the Davidic role as Leonard
      suggests but does not deny or negate it. The point
      being that even if he is a Son of David he is nothing
      like David nor shall his kingship or throne, or
      kingdom be like David's, i.e., earthly, but rather, a
      spiritual kingdom that shall be eternal.

      So although I agree with Leonard I do not agree that
      the David role is denied or negated, but redirected to
      its true end.
