If Joseph is not the father then why is Christ referred to as the seed of David in Romans 1:3? Seed = sperm. Romans 1:3 also says that Christ was made according to the flesh.
“3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;”
Hebrews 2:17 goes onto say that Christ was made like his brethren.
“17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.”
Then we have Acts chapter 2 which once again says that Christ was brought forth from the fruit of the loins of David, again making reference to his “seed” and the “flesh”.
“29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;”
