Recent Discovery Sheds New Light on Messianic yDNA #dna #general

Greetings Ancient DNA Enthusiasts,

I've posted a new pre-print article in the realm of speculative genetic genealogy, this time involving the Messianic patriline of David HaMelekh:

Please enjoy, and if you wish, discuss.

This is very interesting work suggesting that the House of David is a superior Aryan line that joined the family of Abraham. We really need access to ancient DNA to learn more about this. I copied a complete genealogy of the House of David by an English author David Hodges, which Nasik Yose Dayan lent me from his library. There are so many ancient Rabbis with all male lineage from King David with probably intact graves that if we could sample their bones, we could really make progress in learning about the Davidic genealogy. Also, if we can get someone to sample DNA on Christian relics, we could make progress. According to the Jewish tradition, the father of Jesus was a Roman soldier named Pantera, and we could conceivably find hus haplotype via his son's DNA on the garments  Also, according to the book Yosi lent me, Jesus's mother was a princess of the House of David, and her cousin Joseph of Arimathea was a Prince of the House of David via the second wife of Prince Zerubabel. If there is a genuine relic from the crucifixion, we could potentially find three matching DNAs, the son, mother and cousin. The cousin"s DNA would provide a sample of Davidic DNA from 2,000 years ago.  

May we make progress soon!

Dr. Fishman,

Thanks for the commentary.

As you state, the information presented in the article forms the basis for a working hypothesis and I share your hope that additional evidence may be pursued which could shed light on the fascinating subject of the early origins of the Judaean Nation.

One thing I wish to emphasize: the adjective 'superior' is not used in the paper and I do not intend nor imply any such ethnic or cultural hierarchy. From my perspective, each ethnic component making up the early Judaean Nation has brought important cultural, technical, and religious qualities into the mix. This paper doesn't delve into Natufian, Anatolian, Transcaucasian, Egyptian, or Babylonian contributions, but I believe there are essential aspects of Judaism stemming from each of these earlier cultures. My aim in this paper is to present some new evidence and suggest a reasonable working interpretation.

I look forward to what future researchers may discover.
