Genealogy of Christ

David


Back

David is portrayed with royal attributes – a crown on his head and a sceptre in his right hand. In addition he is wearing regal garments with an embroidered tunic and ornate cloak draped over his left shoulder. Although his medallion is the same size as those of the other ancestors of Christ, David was not only a prefiguration of Christ but also, being the son of Jesse, one of his direct ancestors, according to Matthew’s genealogy.
