Fascinating link; I must accept its validity based upon its own merit. I did not know Joseph’s line was cursed. Many thanks.

(I would not believe in the Gospel if the authority of the Catholic Church did not move me to do so..)

Both Joseph (through Solomon - Matt.1) and Mary (through Nathan - Luke 3) were of the lineage of King David. The curse on Jeconiah affected the line to Joseph and the curse was God's promise that no son of is lineage would sit upon the throne over Israel. Mary was also a legal heir to David's throne through his son Nathan. So Jesus had a legal right through Joseph as his Stepfather - though he was not under the curse because he was not of Joseph's blood. He also had the same right through Mary and he was not under the curse.

(God is ready to assume full responsibility for the life wholly yielded to him.)
