Marriage Violations
22If a man is found lying with another man’s wife, both the man who slept with her and the woman must die. You must purge the evil from Israel. 23If there is a virgin pledged in marriage to a man, and another man encounters her in the city and sleeps with her, 24you must take both of them out to the gate of that city and stone them to death—the young woman because she did not cry out in the city, and the man because he has violated his neighbor’s wife. So you must purge the evil from among you.…

Deuteronomy 22:23-27. PURITY OF THE BETROTHED.

(24) His neighbour's wife.--It is evident from the language of this precept that a betrothed virgin in Israel is regarded as a wife. The man who humbles her "hath humbled his neighbour's wife." This illustrates the language of Matthew 1 Joseph, when Mary was found with child, sought to put her away (as though she were already his wife). The angel said to him, "Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife." He "took unto him his wife." From the construction of this law it follows that Jesus was the son of Joseph, according to the Scripture. The Evangelists do not seem to think it worth while to prove that He was the son of David except through his father (in law).
