Today is the Feast of St Joseph. Is it correct to refer to St Joseph as Our Lord's "foster Father" or "Step Father"? In the scriptures our Lord is called "the son of Mary" and Joseph is referred to as "the husband of Mary" therefore of the House of David?
Jesus Christ is the true Son of David who sits on the true "Throne of David". But as Jesus Christ adopted brothers and sisters where does this place us? Have we become "sons and daughters" of David through Jesus Christ?
Is Jesus Christ the Son of David and His humanity through the Incarnation and thus the "foster son" of Joseph but the true Son of Mary?
Did the House of David "end" with our Lord's Ascension into Heaven?
