Why is Jesus called the Root of His Ancestors Jesse and David?

I have heard that Jesus was God's first begotten Son and Archangel. Then, it seems to me to be quite easy to understand that Jesus is the 'root of Jesse'. Basically, Jesus was not the REAL descendant of David, he came down to earth and MATERIALIZED himself, or by God's power, as human being, so God just used Mary as a kind of carrier of incubator.

Angels came down to earth and materialized themselves by different ways: reincarnation is one of them. All Chinese, whether Buddhist or not, are familiar with those stories of gods and angels, who were punished by Supreme God Shang Di and driven down to earth to be reincarnated as human being, such as Pigsy, and Sandy in the romance  the Journey to the West. When their mission's completed, or penalty fulfilled, they went back to Heaven.

If the "k" was not there, “panicing” would look like the word which is supposed to be pronounced as if it is ended in "sing," while “paniced” would be pronounced like “panised”.

Petticoats, breeches and Pinafore

One of the milestones that a little boy passed at the age of four or five was the transition from baby clothes or petticoats to trouser or breeches. He would still wear a pinafore to protect his clothes, but he was expected to be able to dress himself and tie the strings of his pinafore in a bow, at the back.
