Samuel,

When you look at the kings of the United Kingdom of Israel, Saul, David and Solomon, they ALL had fatal flaws, but in spite of that fact, David was a man after God's own heart...

"And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will."Act 13:22

Following Solomon's reign, the kingdom split and very very few of the kings displayed any heart toward God and as a result the Assyrians and Babylonians invaded their countries and took captives.

Josiah was one of the very few who had a heart for God like is "father" David.

"And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left."2Ki 22:2

David and Josiah both show up in Jesus' genealogy in Matthew 1:6,10, and, yes, Amon is there too, but was NOT like David...

"Amon was twenty and two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned two years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Meshullemeth, the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, as his father Manasseh did. And he walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshipped them: And he forsook the LORD God of his fathers, and walked not in the way of the LORD."2Ki 21:19-22

Verse 2 in 2Kings 22 mentions David as Josiah's father. In what capacity is he his father, since Amon is his biological father?
