Re: Davidic Ancestry in the First Century? #general

1000 years is approximately 40 generations.  If in each generation, the average number of children who go on to have their own children is 2, after 40 generations there could be a trillion descendants.  This number is some 10,000 times larger than the likely global population at the time, so it is impossible to rule out David being an ancestors of everyone in the known world.  Note: I am not claiming that he was.
