“As Jesus was approaching Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the road begging. Now hearing a crowd going by, he began to inquire what this was. They told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by.  

And he called out, saying, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" Those who led the way were sternly telling him to be quiet; but he kept crying out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"

Luke 1:27 NASB

“to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.”


Luke 1:32 NASB

“He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David;”
