In Matthew 1:16, Joseph’s geneology is given and his father is lister as Jacob. Mary’s geneology is given in Luke 3:23-38 but as was the Hebrew custom back then, her geneology is recorded in her husband’s name. This is why a different father is listed for Joseph in Luke as compared to Matthew. The Amp version of the Bible actually clarifies in Luke 3, that the man listed there as Joseph’s father is his dad by marriage. So Mary is also a descendant of David.
